This Week's Signature Songs, State By State

Here are the songs that defined America from October 7 to October 13, 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 Oct. 13, Kiesza and "Hideaway" conquered New York, Shawn Mendes was the "Life Of The Party" in Maine, Pitbull's single "Fireball" crash-landed in Florida, and Michigan rocked with "I Don't Fuck With You," the DJ Mustard-produced club-banger from native son Big Sean. Next Thursday, more distinctive songs from BuzzFeed and Spotify.
