(May 21–June 20)

Can you ever imagine a Gemini having just one favourite genre? Us neither. Just like their sign, Geminis are known to have multiple sides to their personalities. While their social butterfly side comes out often, the air sign also likes to enjoy some quality time by themselves. So, for this zodiac, we suggest two genres—’Dance’ for whenever they want to be the life of the party and ‘Pop’ for all those times they just want to be by themselves.

Like Hip hop, there’s a lot more than meets with eye with Leos too.
