Spotify reveal their most-streamed songs of the summer

Listen to the Top 10 songs of the summer

Drake’s ‘One Dance’ has been revealed as the most-streamed song of the summer.

‘One Dance’ was No 1 both around the world and in Britain this summer for streaming on Spotify, who have officially declared “summer” to be June 1-August 31.

Calvin Harris’ Rihanna collaboration ‘This Is What You Came For’ was second around the world, with Sia’s ‘Cheap Thrills’ third.

In the UK, the first five songs in the Top 10 are all collaborations, with Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ at No 6 the first song not to be a featured track.

Spotify trends expert Shanon Cook said: “Drake’s ‘One Dance’ is impossibly catchy and, by late spring, had positioned itself as the one to beat. Other playlist staples like Sia’s feelgood song ‘Cheap Thrills’, Chainsmokers’ standout track ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ and Calvin Harris’ confident club jam ‘This Is What You Came For’ helped shape a summer sound that was upbeat, edgy and memorable.”

The results are slightly different from fellow streaming service Google Play’s survey of the most-streamed songs of summer, which they defined as May 31-August 25. In their survey, ‘One Dance’ was again No 1 globablly, but ‘This Is What You Came For’ was top in Britain. The Top 10 can be heard here.
