    This Week’s Signature Songs, State By State

    Here are the songs that defined America from October 28 to November 3, 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. 3, Fergie's ode to L.A. got hot in... Kansas, EDM wunderkind Calvin Harris made it in New York, Connecticut and The Weeknd did it "Often," and Magic! held on in Hawaii and Nevada with singles "Rude" and "Let Your Hair Down." Next Thursday, more distinctive songs from BuzzFeed and Spotify.
