Spotify: Songs of the Summer





Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello turned up the heat with their second collaboration, “Señorita,” which is Spotify’s most-streamed global song of the summer for 2019. With more than 565 million streams since its June release, the hit track has simmered atop Spotify’s Global Top 50 chart for eight straight weeks. (Watch Shawn Mendes’ reaction to “Señorita” being the top global song of the summer on Spotify’s For the Record).

Listeners also favoured another collaboration during the Northern Hemisphere’s warmer months: Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber’s “I Don’t Care” is the second most-streamed song this summer globally, followed by “bad guy” by Billie Eilish.

And a tip of the (cowboy) hat must go to breakout rapper-singer Lil Nas X, whose “Old Town Road” took off in the Spring - as both a meme and a hit song - and the remix featuring Billy Ray Cyrus is the summer’s fourth most-streamed track globally. Proving that he’s no one-hit-wonder, Lil Nas X has a smash in follow-up single “Panini,” too, which is also featured on our global top summer songs list.

Rapper Lizzo has also had an impressive breakout year, and this summer, her sleeper hit “Truth Hurts” reached fever pitch. Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi also stepped into the (sun)light; our listeners around the world couldn’t get enough of his piano ballad “Someone You Loved” this summer.

Another newcomer is Panamanian singer Sech, whose R&B twist on reggaeton is resonating with Spotify listeners as a fresh sound. His collaboration with Darell on “Otro Trago” is one of five Spanish-language songs to land in the top 20 most-streamed songs globally. Also taking off is Puerto Rico’s Lunay, whose “Soltera - Remix” got a great boost from Daddy Yankee and Bad Bunny.

In the UK, the most-streamed song of the summer comes from Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber, with ‘’I Don’t Care’’, followed by Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes’ “Señorita’’ and Lewis Capaldi’s ‘’Someone You Loved’’.
