Can you drop the "の方” in the AよりBのほうが... construction? I'm asking because I heard this line in a song I was listening to:


Thanks in advance.


Yes. You can drop it. Also, depending the context you can even ommit より and it will be understood.

For example, あっちの方が食べたい - I want to eat that over there (among others I want that one in particular).
