Macklemore & Ryan Lewis enjoyed a 65 percent increase on Spotify after winning four Grammys.

Kendrick Lamar saw his Spotify traffic increase 99 percent following the Grammys Sunday (January 26), according to a Spotify press release.

The Compton rapper performed “m.A.A.d city” and “Radioactive” with Imagine Dragons at the Grammys. Even though he did not win a Grammy, Kendrick Lamar posted the largest jump of any Rap act on Spotify.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis enjoyed a 65 percent increase on Spotify after winning four Grammys.

Pharrell, who won Producer of the Year, saw a 54 percent bump in Spotify traffic.

Beyonce’s show-opening performance of “Drunk In Love” contributed to a 52 percent increase in streams of the song on Spotify from Sunday to Monday. 

Streams of “Another Star,” which Daft Punk performed with Stevie Wonder, increased by 635 percent on Spotify, more than any other song performed at the Grammys.

Daft Punk, which also performed “Get Lucky,” its collaboration with Pharrell, at the Grammys, saw the largest increase on Spotify from Sunday to Monday in streamed tracks for a group or artist that was either nominated for a Grammy or performed during the Grammy broadcast. The French duo enjoyed a 205% increase during the period.

    In a recent interview, Kendrick said after listening to Trilla, he knew Ross was here to stay, and a true force to be reckoned with. He just wishes Ross would call him back for a collabo joint. He keeps getting the answering machine.

      That's a lie. After he heard that album, Kendrick laughed at how trash Ross was and it was Ross who kept calling for a collabo and got no answer.

    "Yet one Kendrick album outsold all of Wale's albums combined" You act like Kendrick sold 10 million lol Wale's coming off a platinum song, and has a gold album to his name. He's right where he needs to be.

    Let me break it down for you: - THC is the ingredient in weed that gets you high. Just like caffeine is the ingredient in coffee that gives you energy. - weed is sold in bud form, the green plant looking items in the bags you buy - THC must be extracted from the bud/plant matter so it can enter your bloodstream and get you high. This is done buy applying heat. - when weed is smoked, the THC is extracted by the flame you apply and ends up in the resulting smoke created from burning it and when you inhale this smoke it enters your blood stream through your lungs - when you wish to make brownies or other edible weed products you heat the oil or butter with the weed in it and this applies the heat needed(like the flame does when smoking) and releases the THC into oil/butter which has the ability to store the THC. This is because the lipids (fats) can absorb it that's why you can't use water as even though you can heat it to the right temp there is no lipids/fat in the water to store the THC - you don't consume the left over plant matter after the THC has been extracted from it. The oil/butter now holds the THC and the bud/plant matter no longer contains it because you just applied heat that transferred it out of the bud into the oil (if your in to eating deep fried plant matter with no function to it knock yourself out but it will contribute nothing to getting you high) - now that you have THC oil/butter you can now look at it like making a mixed drink. The oil/butter=the booze and the brownie or other edible food source=the mixer ( soda, cranberry juice etc.) -the oil/butter has the weeds active ingredient (THC) stored in it so go nuts. If you like doing shots at a bar, Fu*k it take a shot of oil/butter straight up. I imagine that would be nasty. Or you can consume the oil/butter my making any food under the sun that you enjoy that would have oil/butter in it. -the end product (oil/butter) won't really smell like weed and the ultimate end product (brownies, pasta with weed oil etc.) should not smell like anything but what that food product would normally smell like prepared in a standard weed-free fashion -the only weed smell you may find is obviously the weed itself when grinding it and to a lesser extent when the weed is cooking in the oil/butter -oil/butter temperature is important. Usually an oil/butter temp of 380-400 degrees F should be a good temperature to extract the weed you added to it. Try not to over heat oil/butter. I strongly recommend using a thermometer to control oil/butter temperature. Ideally using an IR thermometer (infrared thermometer look it up if you don't know what it is) -in my experience 30 min should be fine a little longer is not bad as long as you carefully monitor oil butter temperature. When you are nearing the end the oil/butter color will be a brownish greenish color and the weed bud/plant matter with appeared crunchy because in essence you just deep fried it -pour the oil/butter mixture through a filtration device (I personally recommend cheese cloth again look it up if your unfamiliar. You can pick it up for cheap at most any supermarket. I advise against using Coffey filter) -make sure you pour the heated oil/butter into a ceramic Coffey mug, some form of glassware etc. don't use a plastic cup or party cup etc. as the hot oil/butter will melt it and you will get injured/burned, potentially damage nearby items in you kitchen, and waste your money because the weed you bought has now moved on to injure you and destroy your home and belongings. -once you use your weed oil/butter to create the edible product of your choice that end product will not smell like weed as you are not burning anything anymore which would release a smell and you no longer possess the buds and plant parts which also house that familiar weed smell. All you have left is the THC concentrated into the oil/butter you used to cook your final product.

    Good for him. I personally think hes slightly overrated but hes certainly better than 90& of the rappers out now. Good to see an actual emcee get at least a little recognition. Waiting on Gibbs x Madlib 2/4/14

    "theres a reason Drake took Kendrick out on tour with him" There's also a reason Kendrick went on Drake's tour. Money, cause we all know Drake's the headliner while Kendrick's the glorified waterboy.

    No limp dick. He clearly wants to be as big as Drake but can't.

      No, you're wrong, dick-less. Kendrick doesn't want to be Drake. He's already in his own lane and makes better music than that Jewish queen.

  • Anonymous

    It's obvious he'll never be Drake or duplicate his success. Kendrick should just stay in his own lane and ride this out cause the end is near.

    • Bookoo

      That's because he is targeting the mainstream pop rap market. I just recently bought NWTS on Amazon for $1.99. Basically every song is radio friendly and/or for women.

    • Richie

      You sound butt hurt. Are you mad that Drake didn't perform at the Grammys? You heard the reason he didn't want to go, they said he'll have to mash up with Taylor Swift, fucking fag.

      aint no one trying to be a spoiled half white jewish canadian child actor from the burbs of toronto theres a reason Drake took Kendrick out on tour with him.

      lmao the end?????? he's just beginning. No he is pure rap so he won't be as popular as Drake who gets sales for all the wrong reasons and he isn't white so he won't put up the sales of Eminem, but he's just getting better and is the FACE OF HIP HOP, not drake, much of hip hop does not respect Drake. He's just warming up.

  • Champagne Papi Life

    He's still the Grammy-less chipmunk looking nigga. Drake, 40 and Boi-1da all got Grammy's at home. OVO is the modern day Motown of hip-hop.

      Lies by the Drake stan. Kendrick also has trophies (they're not Grammys, but they're tropihies). That weak ass Trophies aong ain't better than GKMC. That album stomps anything Drake released.

    • Champagne Papi Life

      People are just mad because their chipmunk looking nigga idol didn't get any trophies. OVO got trophies! The song Trophies happens to better than anything of GKMC and that song didn't even make NWTS.

    • Drake Til Infinity

      They don't need anybody else. Drake writes songs, raps and sings. The other dudes produce hit records. People seek out Drake for features because he sings hooks, raps and is popular. People also seek him out to write songs for them. People seek out Drake's producers because they produce hit records. Eminem can thank Boi 1da for his Grammy for Not Afraid. They don't need any other artists, Drake and his producers do everything and secretly control the rap industry and the music charts. It's a very simple and successful thing OVO has going.

    • ^

      No, they're not. They don't even have any well-known artists, just second-rate bums. Face it, you're talking about a label that's not even real.

    • Drake Til Infinity

      I compared them as a joke because I found Champagne's posts hilarious. You realize that Rick Ross, Ludacris, Kendrick Lamar, TI, Eminem, Schoolboy Q and many others have had hit singles produced by OVO's production team? They are very well known.

    • ^

      Because you're an extreme Drake stan. Nobody even knows any OVO artists, they're a bunch of bum weed carriers; only Drake has the accolades. None of them make quality music. And you can't compare OVO to Motown because Motown has a roster of superstars and legends while OVO is nothing more than Drake's tax write-off.

    • Drake Til Inifinity

      T-Minus did produce Swimming Pools, Champagne Papi. My point is that Drake and his so called "weed carriers" have plenty of accolades in a very short amount of time and I'd argue they make quality music. Personally, I don't understand the hate for Drake and his music. Also the OVO and Motown comparison was just funny.

      "he's trolling and it's hilarious lol" the sad thing is i dont think he is. he really thinks drake is the best thing in hiphop. dude is the definition of a stan.

    • Fuck OVO

      All of those awards and nominations, yet not one classic or even good record.

    • ^

      Look at these two Drake dickriders (or is it one) trying to compare a bunch of bum weed carriers to Motown, the most legendary and iconic label ever. HAHAHA!! Y'all make me laugh. OVO is nothing more than a tax write-off, just like 99% of every artist signed to Cash Money.

    • Champagne Papi Life

      Don't forget T-Minus! Didn't he produce Kendrick's Swimming Pools as well? OVO motherfuckers!!!

    • Drake Til Infinity

      Boi 1da has 3 Grammys on his own! One for his work with Drake and 2 for his work with Eminem. Let's not forget that Drake has won a few songwriter of the year awards and even 40 has one for co-writing "Over". Plus Drake alone has been nominated for 18 Grammys already. OVO = Modern Day Motown

    • Trey

      Drake has ONE. Macklemore has FOUR. If they are Motown, then they've gotta be the Interscope. Sit your dumb ass down.

      "If they were, Drake would have won the best rap album and best overall album this year." Wrong. Kendrick Lamar would have won those two awards, not Drake.

      And you're still wrong, faggot.

    • Champagne Papi Life

      All niggas secretly want Grammys. That's why people like Wale and Kanye write songs about one day getting them. Everybody hyped up Kendrick thinking he was going to snag a few and he didn't. Grammys definitely aren't always an indication of how good an artist is. If they were, Drake would have won the best rap album and best overall album this year.
