This Week’s Signature Songs, State By State

Here are the songs that defined America from Nov. 4 to Nov. 10, presented by BuzzFeed and Spotify. A state’s “signature song” is not its most popular, but its most distinctive — that is to say, the one that residents of that state streamed proportionally the most as compared with the U.S. as a whole.

For the week ending Nov. 11, Nicki Minaj's new single "Only" surged in Texas, Fifth Harmony came down like a "Sledgehammer" in Delaware, North Dakota drove Keith Urban's "Somewhere In My Car" to the top and Irish newcomer Hozier continued his hold on Ohio and Utah with "Take Me To Church." Next Thursday, more distinctive songs from BuzzFeed and Spotify.
