The new report by social scientists claims that listening to heavy-bass music such as 50 Cent’s song ‘In Da Club’, makes job candidates feel more confident during an interview. The report by The Society For Personality And Social Psychology tested two different groups of people for the experiment. One group listened to 50 Cent’s song, Queen’s ‘We Will Rock You’ and 2 Unlimited’s ‘Get Ready For This’. The other group listened to ‘low-power music’ as called by the report, such as Notorious BIG’s ‘Big Poppa’, Fatboy Slim’s ‘Because We Can’ and Baha Men’s ‘Who Let The Dogs Out?’.

Researchers noticed that those in the first group were eager to take control in situations like job interviews and client meetings. The first group felt more in control and productive. The second group made more mistakes in a test measuring abstract thinking.
