Favorite Acts By States Not What It Seemed

February 28, 2014

Earlier this week, Echonest released a map that showed the most distinctive music artists listened to by state, according to streaming services. 

Well, distinctive is different than each states favorite artist, according to the website. And Echonest linked to another website, Music Machinery, to show every states “favorite artist,” which is based on total plays on those same services used for the first map. Apparently, a lot of people really like Jay-Z, who somehow dominates the Southeast, Midwest and Northeast.


Question of the week:

What do you think of the results of both maps?
