Pop songs which refer to alcohol brands could be encouraging young people to binge drink and have sex, experts have warned.
Almost a quarter of chart music lyrics over a three-year period mentioned booze, analysts said.
Four brands of spirits – Patron tequila, Hennessy cognac, Grey Goose vodka, and Jack Daniel’s whiskey – made up more than half of specific references to labels.
Rihanna’s song Cheers states: ‘I drink to that/ Oh let the Jameson sink in’.
In Bittersweet, Kanye West raps: ‘This relationship it even got me back to drinkin’/ Now this Hennessy it’s going to be the death of me’.
