Queens prefers pop, according to social music sharing service Spotify.
An analysis of what songs were shared the most in New York City found that each borough has a distinct taste in music.
In Queens, the most shared song on Spotify from July to mid-September was Carly Rae Jepsen mega hit “Call Me Maybe.” Though the borough’s favorite genre to share was pop, “Thinkin About You” by R&B singer Frank Ocean tied for the top spot.
