So, data says Colorado is known for digging alternative rock band The Naked and Famous. We know that. Now the obvious next question is, who’s Colorado’s least favorite band or artist?

According to relix.com, we don’t like R&B artist, Robert Sylvester Kelly, aka R.Kelly. Other states think the same, especially in our area. At least 14 states don’t like the artist known for hits like, “Ignition,” “I Believe I Can Fly,” or “Down Low.”

The map is based on the Top 50 artists on Spotify, so take it for what it’s worth. The map is expanded twice more, one on Top 100 artists and Top 200 artists.

R.Kelly is also tops for our state in the Top 100 map. Mary J. Blige is listed for Colorado in the Top 200 map.

What do you think?
