SHAZAM PREDICTS SONGS OF SUMMER

Shazam takes pride in its prediction coming true last year that Drake’s “One Dance” would dominate the summer months. For a repeat performance, their thumbs are pressing hard on Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito,” DJ Khaled’s “I’m The One” and Harry Styles’ “Sing of the Times.” 

Shazam CEO Rich Riley said in a blog post, "Every year, we use our ‘crystal ball’ of data to see which songs are most likely to soundtrack the summer. We’re just as excited as everyone else to learn who and what will be big. We’re also proud that the most passionate fans come to Shazam to discover music—and in turn, predict what’s next.”

Here is the Shazam Songs of Summer Top 10 along with a little 411.

Luis Fonsi f/ Justin Bieber, “Despacito” It has sat at #1 in 30 Shazam charts.
