KFC France recently created its own playlist for Spotify that
includes a variety of hip-hop songs that mention the brand.

songs from artists such as Kanye West, Diplo, Drake, Kendrick

Advertise the playlist on your hotel website, around the
property, and in guest rooms as an inexpensive way to further
connect your brand with your guests.
