This Week's Signature Songs, State By State

Here are the songs that defined America from Sept. 23 to Sept. 29, 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 Sept. 29, Kendrick Lamar's feel-good new single "i" crash landed in Massachusetts, country stud Dustin Lynch strode into West Virginia, Ohio discovered Irish pop-crossovers The Script, and affable pop upstarts Walk The Moon captured the capital with "Shut Up And Dance." Next Thursday, more distinctive songs from BuzzFeed and Spotify.
