Jay-Z Still Got The East Coast On Lock! Even Down South
Judging by this map Drake still has some work to do before he eclipses Jay Z. Music Machinery created a map of each state's favorite artist by compiling streaming data from The Echo Nest. The formula is simple: the most played artist in each state last year takes the crown. There's no split vote fu*kery like Nebraska and Maine allow for in the electoral college.
As you can see, Hov dominates the East, Midwest, and a large portion of the South. Drake also takes a few states from the South, as well as the Southwest, somewhat validating his claim on YG's "Who Do You Love." Macklemore & Ryan Lewis actually take more states than Drizzy, a fact we wish we could ignore. Check out who your state is feeling most above.
