There’s Proof That Toronto Loves Drake
Survey results reveal many Torontonians listen to Drake on the subway.
Drake has never made it a secret that he was born and raised in Toronto. The rapper’s hometown has been the subject of many of of his songs, including the track “City is Mine.”
And it’s no surprise that Torontonians love Drake: his upcoming Toronto summer concert sold out within seconds. But if you needed more proof that Toronto loves Drake, a recent survey discovered that an overwhelming number of subway riders listen to the homegrown rap star during their commutes.
Meagan Perry, who’s behind the survey, came up with a unique way to illustrate her data: a map of Toronto’s subway system that plots the songs passengers have been listening to at different stations.
“I think the entertainment that people choose really tells you a lot about them,” she told the Toronto Star. “I just became really curious about what people were listening to, and what people were choosing, because you create this individual world within a public space.”
Perry added to the Globe & Mail that Drake “ruled the subway.” She said rap and R&B were extremely popular throughout a number of stations.
