Spotify Reveals Top Pot Playlists in Honor of 4/20
These tracks are about as blunt as they come.
Music and marijuana are often complementary, even sharing the same slang at times. Whether you’re taking a hit from a bong or taking a hit song and adding it to your favorite 4/20 playlist, Spotify is offering a helping hand to pot-smoking music fans today by revealing the top 20 streamed songs from 4/20-themed playlists.
Spotify discovered that the most streamed track across all 4/20-themed, global user-created playlists is Cypress Hill’s Hits From the Bong.
Included in the top 20 list of tracks is Bob Marley and The Wailers’ Sun Is Shining, Snoop Dogg’s Gin and Juice, Sublime’s Smoke Two Joints, The Notorious B.I.G.’s Juicy, Afroman’s sing-along-style track Because I Got High and a less expected entry: UB40’s Red Red Wine.
Over 40,000 4/20-themed playlists are available on Spotify globally, with men having created 75 percent.
California takes first place nationally as the state with the most 4/20-themed playlists, followed by Texas and New York. Washington and Colorado made top honors for bud-friendly playlists as well.
Artists Willie Nelson, Method Man and Peter Tosh have compiled 4/20-inspired playlists, including Willie’s new single It’s All Going to Pot that dropped today. Playlists can be embedded online using the Spotify Play Button.
