As we all may know, athletes are big on superstitions and pre-game rituals – especially as they get ready to tackle the field. And Lionel Messi is no stranger to this. The legendary Argentine futbolista currently playing for Inter Miami has his own unique pre-match routine that involves a carefully curated playlist of 60 songs. Revealed this Tuesday by Apple Music, Messi’s playlist offers a glimpse into what his pre-game preparations sound like.  

Crafted for a 3-hour and 30-minute session, Messi’s playlist is a blend of Latin music, international hits, and unexpected genre deviations. From corridos tumbados to rap, the list reflects Messi’s eclectic taste in music. 

Lionel Messi Does Not Play When It Comes to His Music

At the helm of Messi’s musical journey is none other than Kendall Jenner’s jevo, Bad Bunny. With six tracks on the playlist, including “Otra noche en Miami” (Another Night in Miami), Bad Bunny emerges as Messi’s favorite artist.  

Following Bad Bunny’s lead are other Latin stars like Young Miko, Daddy Yankee, Grupo Frontera, and Peso Pluma. Songs like “Young Miko: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 58” and “NO SE VA” made the cut. Interestingly, while Latin artists dominate the list, Messi also ventures into different genres with tracks like Rihanna’s “Don’t Stop the Music,” Gorillaz’s “Feel Good Inc.,” AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell,” U2’s “Vertigo,” and Drake’s “First Person Shooter.” 

Messi, understanding that there are several heavy hitters in the Latin music game from Colombia, also listens to Karol G, J Balvin, Manuel Turizo, and Juanes.  

From the looks of Messi’s playlist, he knows how to hype himself up in the best of ways. It’s amazing how he even has Rick Ross’ “Hustlin’” in his music selection. Evidently, Messi doesn’t play when it comes to getting into the right mindset before a game. 

Maybe we should all take note of his music. Who knows what that’ll do to our lives? Will we become “goats” in our respective lives? Who’s to say? One thing is for sure: Messi has good taste in music.
