For EW’s new Summer Must List—the one with Nick Jonas on the cover, on newsstands now—we asked industry insiders and top artists to peer into their crystal balls to see which jam will dominate the summer season. Here are their picks:

Sofi Tukker, “Drinkee”

“This song by the New York duo is full of electronic bounce, Portuguese lyrics—which on first listen sound completely made-up—and not an ounce of self-importance. Live, they play percussion on a tree made of books. And their show is full of silly synchronized dance moves. Sofi Tukker insist that we have a fun summer house party and possibly even a ‘Drinkee’ with them.” —Anne Litt, KCRW DJ
