Here’s your state’s actual favorite artist

You’ve probably seen a map going around this week purporting to show favorite artists by state. You might have thought, James Blake is the most popular artist in New York? That can’t be true. The map by Paul Lamere was actually supposed to be of the most ‘distinct’ artists by state. It shows the artists that are more popular in that state than anywhere else.

Paul has now made a map of what the actual most popular artist is per state (pictured above), and there’s a lot of Jay-Z, Drake, Daft Punk and Macklemore. Compare that to the original disctinctive map below:


Here’s also a map that shows the favorite artists divided by region. Look at Alt-J standing alone up there.
