What does the Western Slope listen to?

In this Feb. 4, 2017 file photo, Taylor Swift performs at the DIRECTV NOW Super Saturday Night Concert in Houston, Texas.

Apparently a lot of Selena Gomez.

The New York Times published a series of maps detailing what artists are most popular, relatively, across the country, according to YouTube streaming data.

Colorado’s Western Slope seemed to favor pop queens such as Selena Gomez, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. Other pop powerhouses such as Twenty One Pilots, Justin Bieber and The Chainsmokers were local favorites as well. Linkin Park, whose lead singer Chester Bennington recently died, were also pretty popular.

Artists with fewer dedicated fans on the Western Slope include the “Bad and Boujee” trio Migos; young rap trailblazers Lil Uzi Vert and Lil Yachty; and major players Beyonce and DJ Khaled. The New York Times noted that artists with less saturation didn’t necessarily mean the artists weren’t listened to, but their fans rather listened to a wider assortment of artists.
