    This Week’s Signature Songs, State By State

    Here are the songs that defined America from Nov. 18 to Nov. 24, 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.
