Spotify created a live map showing listening trends in over 1,000 cities across the world. The map shows at least one hip hop track is included in almost every specialized city playlist.

Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly and Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late both broke single day streaming records after their releases.
