FUTURE VS. HNDRXX: MARCH MADNESS, FIRST ROUND

Yesterday, we unleashed our March Madness Face-Off, an NCAA tournament-style showdown between the songs on FUTURE and the songs on HNDRXX. It’s the ultimate battle to decide which of the 34 new songs is the crown jewel of Future’s recent Billboard chart-topping back-to-back feat.

The Wild Card round’s been decided—don’t worry, the popular vote counts here—and we’re happy to announce the winners of the open #16 seeds: “Massage In My Room” in the FUTURE Conference and “Keep Quiet” in the HNDRXX Conference. “Flip” and “New Illuminati” have been eliminated. (We aggregated results from both MassAppeal.com voting and our Twitter polls. TRANSPARENCY IS KEY TO OUR MOLLY PERCOCET DEMOCRACY.)

Here’s how it played out:

FUTURE

  • “Flip” – 48.5%
  • “Massage In My Room” – 51.5%

HNDRXX

  • “New Illuminati” – 31.5%
  • “Keep Quiet” – 68.5%

Below, you can dive into making your first round selections for HNDRXX. Watch for bracket-busters—”Selfish” an 8-seed? Preposterous!—and be wary of Cinderella teams tracks. Anything can happen in March.

If you’re on the go, check for our Twitter polls, which will be rolling out throughout the day. First round winners will be announced on Monday at 11 a.m. ET.

And now, the Future voting is live. Enjoy.
