The New York Times' Upshot compiled a list of maps detailing breaking down the country's popular music tastes geographically, so if you're ever wondered where The Chainsmokers are most popular (answer: Northeast college towns), now you know.

  • The method: The Upshot took the 50 most-watched artists on YouTube over the past year from this spring's Billboard Top 100 and used YouTube's geocoded streaming data to tally up their plays in metropolitan areas across the United States. The maps reflect each artist's relative popularity across the country.
  • Some takeaways: Coastal and southern hip hop — Future, Migos, Lil Yachty — really doesn't play well out West. Artists with a rock/pop flavor — Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga — aren't hugely popular in the South.
  • Politico's Kevin Robillard tweets the truth: "This article makes one thing clear: Americans in every section of the country have truly terrible taste in music."

The White House is finalizing a series of executive orders addressing key coronavirus stimulus priorities if negotiations with Congress fall apart, and it's leaving the door open for President Trump to use them even if a deal is reached that doesn't encompass all of his priorities, two administration officials tell Axios.

What we’re hearing: “I wouldn't be surprised that, if something gets left off the table, we’d be like ‘we can take this executive action too and be able to win on it anyway,’” one official said.

TikTok said Friday that it was "shocked" by President Trump's executive order that will ban Americans from dealing with ByteDance, its China-based owner, in 45 days.

Why it matters: TikTok argued that Trump's move "risks undermining global businesses' trust in the United States' commitment to the rule of law, which has served as a magnet for investment and spurred decades of American economic growth."

U.S. economy adds 1.8 million jobs in July

Data: Bureau of Labor Statistics; Chart: Axios Visuals

The U.S. added 1.8 million jobs last month, while the unemployment rate fell to 10.2% from 11.1% in June, the Labor Department said on Friday.

Why it matters: The labor market continued to recover but the pace of job growth slowed significantly from June’s 4.8 million job gain, suggesting a stalled improvement as coronavirus cases surged and states pulled back on reopening plans.
