Now we have an idea of why the Houston is one of the fastest-growing cities in America: Houstonians love baby-making music.

Amazon Music announced its Top 10 Love Song Capitals, a list of cities with at least 100,000 residents that listen to the most love and romance songs on a per capita basis.

The Bayou City came in fourth on the list, just behind Las Vegas, Phoenix, and San Diego. All are warm weather cities, where it seems the lack of clothes is not only practical, but leads to other fun activities as well.

Songs that fared well on the sexy scale include Demi Lovato’s “Sorry Not Sorry,” the most requested love song of 2018 so far. Thomas Rhett scored the top spot for 2017 with “Die a Happy Man.” Surprisingly, ’90s megastars the Spice Girls scored as the most requested love songs to Alexa by lyrics in 2017 and 2018 with their hit “Wannabe.” (Zig-a-zig-a, indeed.)

Not so surprising, is Amazon reported that Friday is the most consistent day to get a little crazy, as couples look to de-stress after a long work week, kicking off the weekend strong with the simple request of asking Alexa, “play baby-making jazz.”
