Here are the 10 most popular artists in every state

Nothing unites people like music, and in the age of streaming people are consuming more music than ever before. Some reports claims as many as 300,000 new tracks are uploaded every day across various platforms, making competition for attention fiercer than it has ever been.

Recently, the team at Business Insider decided to seek out the most popular artists in every state. This kind of feature seems to appear at least once a year, and this time the information involved is sourced entirely from Pandora. Using volumes of data the BI team determined the top 10 artists in each of the 50 states, which you can now read in full below.

This may come as no surprise, but Drake is the top ranked talent in 31 states. Other artists who appear frequently include dele, Bruno Mars, Rhianna, Future, The Weeknd, Chris Brown, Ed Sheeran, Chris Stapleton, Migos, Twenty One Pilots, Five Finger Death Punch, and country hitmaker Luke Bryan.
