Spotify has made it easier than ever for users to compile and share playlists of their favorite songs. What's more, music fans aren't the only ones who have taken part in the trend.

In recent years, Spotify has finally begun to answer the age-old question of "what do your favorite famous people listen to?" Now, everyone from popular musicians to powerful politicians are creating their own public Spotify playlists. 

Sometimes celebrity Spotify playlists are created in anticipation of an artist's upcoming album release. Other times, it's just a fun, unique avenue for a celebrity to connect with their fans. Either way, there's an inherent joy in finding out what celebrities listen to on Spotify, especially when people learn that they appreciate the same music as their idols.

Without further ado, here are 12 of the most notable Spotify playlists of the rich and famous!

When the country star released this 420-friendly playlist, some people found the concept a little strange. While cannabis certainly seems out of sync with the classic country aesthetic, the argument could be made that there's no better way to get to know an artist than to check out the songs they like to get high to. 

Top track: "You Don't Know How It Feels" by Tom Petty

Cringiest track: "Could You Be Loved" by Bob Marley

Age: 30

Birthplace: Mineola, Texas
