SPOTIFY’S TOP SONGS
OF THE SUMMER

It will surprise no one that “Despacito” is this summer’s most listened-to track, with 786m+ streams worldwide thus far, according to Spotify’s just-released Global and U.S. Songs of the Summer lists.

DJ Khaled’s “Wild Thoughts,” French Montana’s “Unforgettable” and Khaled’s “I'm the One” occupy the #2-4 slots on the Global list, giving Epic three of the top four. The Sylvia Rhone-led red-hot label also has four of the U.S. Top 10.

Justin Bieber’s remix of the Luis Fonsi f/Daddy Yankee mega-smash is one of five Spanish-language songs featured in the global list. We suspect you’ll be able to figure out which songs we’re referring to by scanning the list below.

“2017 gave us the summer of Latin music,” said Rocio Guerrero, Spotify’s Head of Latin Culture, over a polyrhythmic drum roll. “For the first time ever, we have seven Latin songs on Spotify’s global chart, including both the original and remix of ‘Despacito,’ this summer’s undisputed anthem. Another huge success has been Danny Ocean, one of Spotify’s emerging Latin artists, who has racked up more than 318m streams with ‘Me Rehúso.’”

The songs of the summer were identified by looking at Spotify’s most listened to tracks between 6/21 and 8/27.
