Wedding season is right around the corner and the world is kicking off the festivities with the biggest “I do’s” this year — Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Will the Royal Couple take their first official spin to Adele, Ellie Goulding, Elton John, or some other artist entirely? Speculation ahead of the May 19 nuptials has everyone guessing whether the pair is more into gentle and jazzy or peppy and popular jams.
If they want to be right on trend, the couple would likely go with Ed Sheeran for the first dance. In this year’s Sheeran vs. Sheeran wedding playlist showdown, his song “Perfect” topped his previous song “Thinking Out Loud” for the most popular first-dance song worldwide in 2018, according to Spotify data.
His music still reigns as some of the most popular first-dance songs for Pinoys, but he’s against some tough competition. Overtaking “Perfect” is Etta James’ classic romantic ballad, “At Last,” as the most popular first-dance song in the Philippines.
It comes as no surprise that these songs are also part of Spotify’s Wedding Bells playlist. There’s something for every couple, from the nostalgic ‘90s kids (K-Ci & JoJo’s “All My Life”) to the indie-loving duo (LANY’s “ILYSB – Stripped”).
