The Jukebox Jury Map

Earlier this year the Wall Street journal created an interesting map which showed the most popular songs played on New York's e-jukeboxes. They have now created a jukebox map of the whole country,

America's Jukebox Heroes uses data from TouchTunes to show the most popular songs played on the company's e-jukeboxes across the United States. When you are zoomed out on the map the colored dots show you which genres are popular in different parts of the country. Zoom in on the map and you can see which artists were the most popular in each neighborhood.

Underneath the main map the WSJ explores some cities in more detail. Their general conclusion from the data appears to be that Hispanic neighborhoods often prefer Latin music and R&B/hip-hop is often popular in neighborhoods with a large African-American population.
