Over 40,000 playlists have been created around a '420' theme on the streaming service, which we can safely assume relate to weed, and these were analysed by frequency of track. Sadly, a lot of novelty tracks and obvious ones that reference marijuana in the title are in there - Afroman 'Because I Got High', Cypress Hill 'Hits From The Bong', that sort of thing - though there are a few less overt choices. Kendrick Lamar's 'Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe' is the sixth most-listened to 420 track, while Notorious B.I.G's 'Juicy' and Snoop Dogg's 'Gin And Juice' are in there too. Spotify notes that 75% of the 40,000-plus playlists on Spotify with a '420' theme in their titles are created by males, with the service getting Willie Nelson and Method Man to curate two 420 playlists of their own for 4/20 back in April.
