    This Week’s Signature Songs, State By State

    Here are the songs that defined America from Nov. 25 to Dec. 1, 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 Dec. 1, Arizona stayed high with Swedish pop star Tove Lo, Jennifer Lawrence's Hunger Games hymn "The Hanging Tree" broke through in West Virginia, Georgia continued to be a "No Flex Zone" thanks to Rae Sremmurd while Beyonce reigned supreme in Maryland, New York and the District of Columbia. Next Thursday, more Signature Songs from BuzzFeed and Spotify.
