Artists like Future, The Weeknd, and Kodak Black are the ones which have preferred to use the Rolls-Royce name in their lyrics. The four cars in Rolls-Royce’s portfolio have got their own mentions, with the Wraith edging out the Dawn, the Phantom and the Ghost to be the most-used model name.
Ferrari comes in with nine song mentions on the second spot. Separating the top two from the rest of the car badges is Hennessy cognac brand. Porsche takes the fourth rank with seven mentions. Chevrolet and Lamborghini come in fifth, with Bentley, Cadillac and Mercedes-Benz wrapping up the top 5.
