There’s no denying that 2017 has been a momentous year for hip-hop with countless hits, and we’re proud to announce fellow Drai’s residents Future and Migos made the list for 2017’s most consumed tracks! With powerhouse albums like FUTURE, Culture and Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. releasing earlier this year, these were some of the strongest works the rappers have come out with to date. Using a hybrid total that accounts for audio streams, video streams, song sales, radio spins, and Shazam tags from research conducted by BuzzAngle Music and Variety, the popularity of the tracks that make up the list are a better representation of where the industry is at as a whole than most year-end roundups you’ll find.
Based on these precise metrics, Future’s “Mask Off” came in at #6 for overall consumption while Migos’s “Bad and Boujee” just missed the top 10 territory, coming in at #11. The top consumed rap song was Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE.” coming in at #3, trailing to the remix of Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” and Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You.”
We want to congratulate our very own Future and Migos for making this prestigious list! You can catch Future perform live at Drai’s Nightclub for New Year’s Eve weekend on December 30! Click here to purchase tickets.
