These are the songs—whether we chose them or not—that will be playing in the background of our memories of a specific time and place. As for who reigned supreme? Time will tell. You can listen to the full Songs of Summer playlist on our Spotify, too. That is called art. Released at the beginning of August, the song shot to number 11 on the Billboard charts and even managed to nab an MTV Video Music award, proving that Megan Thee Stallion is not concerned with running out of time.

Fat White Family – Feet
From pop comebacks to international acts finding crossover success to gorgeous ballads and irresistible dancefloor bait, was quite the year. Here are the songs we couldn't stop playing this year. Think the vulnerable voice of Nina Simone waxing poetic about the ills of millennial dating. Following in the footsteps of international kings like Burna Boy and WizKid, Rema's crisp, charming vocals float over a bouncy rhythm that blends Afropop and hip-hop to create three minutes and 15 seconds of sheer joy. Sex sells, but Rapsody has never been one to conform to hip-hop's misogynistic views of women. Angel Olsen's lush, throaty voice connects with an eerie, '80s-leaning production to create a musical masterpiece. One of the most ubiquitous songs of came from pop's newest power couple. Hate it or love it, Shawn and Camila make magic together. DaBaby covers common rap tropes, yes, but it's his signature breathless, rapid-fire flow matching the high-energy beats he cruises on that sets hi, apart from his contemporaries.
