This Week's Signature Songs, State By State

Here are the songs that defined America from October 14 to October 20, 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. 20, DJ Khaled's R&B thug roundtable "Hold You Down" — featuring Chris Brown, Jeremih, August Alsina, and Future — landed in Louisiana, I Love Makonnen and his O.V.O boss Drake caught some heat in Georgia, Misterwives' bubbling single "Reflections" took root in Kansas, and West Virginia and Arkansas double dipped on "Burnin' It Down" by Jason Aldean.
