“Music has always been important in my life,” legendary cricketer AB de Villiers explains. “As I was growing up, music was always being played in our home and some of the classic songs on my list are favourites of my parents. Vocals are important as well… I have always enjoyed listening to the words, and trying to work out the deeper meaning of every song. My playlist is a combination of songs from different genres and different eras, and that’s how I love my music – it’s all great music that really speaks to me and speaks to my soul.”
