In today’s music industry, streaming is king — as such, platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, and TIDAL have amassed no shortage of data detailing commercial statistics.

Now, as the autumn months rapidly approach, Spotify has come forward to reveal the official “Songs Of The Summer,”  a list of the twenty most-streamed tracks between the months of May and August.

Though hip-hop is widely recognized as one of the biggest commercial genre, it would appear that where streaming is concerned, pop is still the reigning champion. On a global level, the top five songs are as follows:

Olivia Rodrigo’s “good 4 u” in the number one spot, Måneskin’s “Beggin” is two, Rauw Alejandro’s “Todo De Ti” is three, Lil Nas X’s “Montero” is four, and Doja Cat and SZA’s “Kiss Me More” is five. Evidently, one of the only hip-hop acts to crack the global top twenty is DaBaby, who held it down on Dua Lipa’s “Levitating.”

Things are slightly different where the United States are concerned. Polo G’s “RAPSTAR” sits pretty at number five, while Drake and Lil Baby’s “Wants And Needs” makes the cut at eleven. Clear breakout star Olivia Rodrigo is a dominant presence throughout, netting eight of the twenty most-streamed summer songs. The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber’s “Stay” locked in the third position, while globally it came in at six. On the podcast front, The Joe Rogan Experience remains locked in the number one spot both globally and in the United States.
