Popstar Justin Bieber makes the best music for housework, according to new research conducted by cleaning experts Gtech.

Other top artists for cleaning include Dua Lipa and Taylor Swift – who appear 30 and 28 times on housework playlists respectively.

One Direction, Kesha, Kygo, Maroon 5, Jason Derulo, Katy Perry and Ed Sheeran also prove popular.

The ultimate cleaning soundtrack, however, was Olivia Rodrigo’s SOUR – which appears on cleaning playlists more than any other studio album (16). Two of the songs on the 2020 record – ‘good 4 u’ and ‘driver license’ – featured on 40% of top cleaning playlists.

Kesha’s 2010 release Animal is another popular choice for chores – featuring autotune-powered smash-hits like ‘Blah Blah Blah’, ‘Your Love Is My Drug’, and ‘TiK ToK’.

However, the best cleaning song of all time is actually a track released way back in 1978: ‘September’ by Earth, Wind & Fire.

The funk classic features in 60% of the most popular cleaning playlists, rivalled by a variety of other earwormy chart-toppers like ‘Bad Habits’ by Ed Sheeran, ‘Bad Romance’ by Lady Gaga and ‘Billie Jean’ by Michael Jackson.

‘Levitating’ by Dua Lipa and ‘Shut Up and Dance’ by Walk the Moon also rank among the top cleaning songs.

Overall, the majority of cleaning artists, songs, and albums fall into the pop category – showing that people prefer to blast upbeat, danceable tunes with memorable lyrics when it’s time to do the housework.

A Gtech spokesperson commented: “With Christmas round the corner, it is only natural to think about how you’re going to find the time to spruce the house up, ready for festive guests.

“As our data has found, pop and disco tracks provide the ultimate motivation for doing cleaning duties – why not add some of these top cleaning tracks to your personal playlist to make your Christmas cleaning more enjoyable this year?”
