You gotta have Wraith, Wraith, Wraith

Rolls-Royce Wraith

SO which car firm would you think are most rapped about in the charts? Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Mercedes?

Actually you’re wrong. Remarkably it is Rolls-Royce.

The kind of luxury cars is now the No1 of pop-culture music references.

“Park the Benz, just to ride the Wraith,” Quavo raps in Drake’s song “Portland,” which peaked at No. 9 in the American charts this year.

Bloomberg studied tracks that made it into the top 20 spots of Billboard’s Hot 100 over the past three years and found that eight of the 12 most popular product mentions have four wheels.

Rolls-Royce tops the list, featured in 11 different tunes by such artists as Future, The Weeknd, and Kodak Black.

Ferrari is a close second. Chevrolet, Lamborghini, Bentley, Cadillac, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche each get touts in several songs.

But strangely no mention of Dacia. Funny that.
