hip hop, deep house, and bass emerged as the top three genres most frequently sought in the US, with hip hop surfacing as the most prominently searched genre in a total of seven states including New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, Texas, Minnesota, Virginia, and Idaho. Deep house materialized as another favorite in four states: Florida, Montana, North Dakota, and Iowa. Rounding out the leading three is bass, also championed by four states, Illinois, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and tennessee. The map of search trends indicates a diversity of listening predilections across the 50 states that extends far beyond the four mentioned above.
