Spotify announces most popular songs of the summer
"Despacito" isn't the song of the summer on Twitter, but it takes the
cake popsicle on Spotify.
The streaming service on Thursday announced its most-played songs of the season, and with 786 million streams since the first day of summer on June 21, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito" remix featuring Justin Bieber tops the global list.
The performance of "Despacito" on Spotify shouldn't come as a big surprise: The song has been at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 for 16 consecutive weeks, tying with Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's "One Sweet Day" for most consecutive weeks at No. 1. However, Taylor Swift's new single "Look What You Made Me Do" is expected to block it from breaking the record next week.
Coming in at No. 2 on Spotify is DJ Khaled's "Wild Thoughts" featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, which famously samples Santana's guitar riff from 1999's "Maria Maria."
French Montana has the third most popular song of the summer, according to Spotify, with "Unforgettable."
The list is a little different when you only look at streams in the U.S., where Lil Uzi Vert's "XO TOUR Llif3" lands at No. 2, pushing "Wild Thoughts" to No. 3.
