Kodak Black, who is Florida's favorite Spotify artist, according to a new study.

At least it wasn't Demi Lovato (who is the most streamed artists in nine other states).

AT&T just sent out an analysis of Spotify data to figure out each U.S. state's most streamed artist, and Florida's is apparently Kodak Black, a 21-year-old Pompano Beach rapper who apparent has a lot to be happy about today.

The telecommunications giant used Spotify’s US “Top 200” chart, then analyzed each artist’s search rank and cross-referenced it with Google trends to determine the 27 most popular artists in the country to come up with the result.

Hip-hop and rap actually sits on top of the list in 22 sates, with Kendrick Lamar topping the rankings in Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina and Nevada. 

Oh, if your're wondering: New Hampshire really likes The Chainsmokers. Have a look at the map and stream some Kodak black below. See the full list plus study here.
