Summer’s here and the time is right for getting “Savage” in the streets. Or maybe you’re ready for a break from the heat and you want it to “Rain on Me”? Whether you’re a Megan Thee Stallion/Beyoncé fan or a Lady Gaga/Ariana Grande stan, it’s time to figure out what your outdoor summer jam will be after way too much time spent indoors.
Meg and Bey have already warmed things up with their No. 1 on Billboard’s Songs of the Summer chart dated June 13, which knocked Gaga and Grande off the peak after “Rain” previously topped the list. Other contenders for the hot weather crown include DaBaby’s Hot 100 No. 1, “Rockstar” (featuring Roddy Ricch), as well as The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” and Doja Cat’s “Say So.”
Maybe your groove is more of a “Toosie Slide” from Drake, or Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now.” Otherwise you could opt for Roddy Ricch’s smash “The Box,” Justin Bieber’s “Intentions” or Post Malone’s “Circles.”
The 20-position Songs of the Summer running tally tracks the most popular titles based on cumulative performance on the weekly streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Billboard Hot 100 chart from Memorial Day through Labor Day (this year encompassing charts dated June 6 through Sept. 5). At the end of the season, the top song of the summer will be revealed.
