Decoding Ivanka Trump’s Public Spotify Playlists

by Jazmin Kopotsha |

I think we can all agree that Ivanka Trump is a bit of an enigma. Truth be told, beyond a couple of questionable career advice books and supposed defiant support of both feminism and daddy Donald Trump at the same time, we don’t know all that much about Ivanka. But, ICYMI, there is one way to take a peek into the heart mind and soul of America’s first daughter, and that’s through her Spotify playlists.

You can learn a lot from what someone listens to, but I bet you never expected to be stalking Ivanka Trump’s workout playlist though, did you? Ivanka’s Spotify playlists have been knocking around for a while, at least since the 28 song joyride otherwise known as ‘2015 Holiday Party’, featuring the musical stylings of everyone from Carly Rae Jepsen to Sam Cooke. Justin Bieber appears twice, though.

The most recent playlist to have gotten the internet’s knickers in a twist though, is as cryptic as it is gross. It’s called ‘991122’, features just five songs, is 21 minutes long and people are proposing that it’s her and husband Jared’s sex playlist. Yes, we have all the questions too. But before we get to those, let’s examine the song selection:

  1. All of Me, by John Legend

  2. Ordinary People, by John Legend

  3. When I Was Your Man, by John Legend

  4. You’re Beautiful, by James Blunt

  5. When We Were Young, by Adele

Now, are we really sure that these are songs that you’d want to bang to? To get to the deep and dirty of it, I’m not sure I’d describe this particular selection of songs as ‘sex’ songs. Each to their own, of course, and I suppose you can never really anticipate what will get someone else off. Some people might be really into the most vanilla gateway into a five-song session of really boring sex, but also, bumping uglies to James Blunt? In 2017? Lol. That makes me a little bit sad.

The playlist was created a week ahead of Ivanka and Jared’s eight-year anniversary, which is where the sexlist speculation is coming from. And while this, the most emotionally draining 20-minute playlist of the year, poses so many questions about Ivanka’s life, tastes and attention span, the big issue we’re struggling to decode is the title 991122, and what the hell it means.

Is 991122 poorly formulated Morse Code for SOS? Is it the reverse of a date – 22nd November 1999? Because that happened to be the 36th anniversary of JFK’s assassination and the 9-year anniversary of the day Margaret Thatcher stepped down as Prime Minister. Is Ivanka trying to tell us something about the fate of her father? Maybe it’s nothing. Maybe 991122 is just what happened when Ivanka haphazardly pressed a few buttons on her phone so that she could hurry up and save the playlist before reconnecting to the Sonos and getting down to business with Jared on their scheduled Thursday afternoon sex appointment.

Other fun facts about Ivanka to take away from her Spotify account: In 2013 she created a ‘Walk to Work’ playlist. We can only assume that Ivanka strolled through the streets of New York to her office at Trump Tower singing along to On Top Of The World by Imagine Dragons, Gold On The Ceiling by The Black Keys and Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj’s Flawless Remix most days.

Ivanka also has a Work: Focus playlist and a Work: Boost playlist. Admittedly the Boost playlist is the most interesting one. Good to know that Beyoncé’s ‘Run the World (Girls)’ and ‘Partition’, DJ Snake’s ‘Turn Down for What’ and university club banger ‘Like A G6’ by Far East Movement get Ivanka through that 4 pm slump too.
