    Delicate – Taylor Swift
    Dura – Daddy Yankee
    FRIENDS – Marshmello & Anne-Marie
    Heaven – Kane Brown
    I Like It – Cardi B feat. Bad Bunny & J. Balvin
    I Like Me Better – Lauv
    In My Blood – Shawn Mendes
    Look Alive – BlocBoy BJ feat. Drake
    Love Lies – Khalid & Normani
    Meant to Be – Bebe Rexha & Florida Georgia Line
    The Middle – Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey
    Mine – Bazzi
    Never Be the Same – Camila Cabello
    Nice for What – Drake
    No Tears Left to Cry – Ariana Grande

    I see potential in “I Like It” and “One Kiss” from the above.

    I Like It seems like the most logical contender. Most of those songs are either already fading away (Friends, Meant to Be, Plug Walk), have hitted their peak too soon before summer (Nice for What, Pyscho, Never Be The Same), or are not so “summerlike” (No Tears Left to Cry, Heaven, Whatever it Takes)

    Yeah, “I Like It” definitely seems like the obvious choice, especially when they push it to radio and the video comes out.

    It’s sounding like “Sangria Wine” will get a good push too from Camila and Pharrell. With a title like that, it has to be summer song worthy.

    Quite possibly, “Ring the Alarm” by The Black Eyed Peas.

    “Sangria Wine” is kind of disposable and repetitive…

    It might catch on after the Billboard performance, but it sounds like a b-side.

    It didn’t jump up the charts instantly like a lot of other pop songs, including even the Backstreet Boys.

    What is going on with the BTS stuff though? The songs are selling like crazy, the streaming and album sales should be pretty big too. With the way charts are compiled now, their small, but insane fanbase can really make an impact for them.

    It’s a surprise to me too but I’m a BSB superfan so I am all for this.

    Yea. That new BSB song is LIT. Who the hell would have thought one of the best tracks to kick off summer in 2018 would be these middle agers??? The video is really great too!

    Get real! The Black Eyed Peas are so 2009. They will NOT have the song of the summer.

    I think that this ended up being the right answer. “I Like It” might technically be the “song of the summer” per Billboard, but what kind of a song of the summer spends only one week on the top of the Hot 100? “Despacito” it is not, although it was clearly influenced by it.

    I see potential in “I Like It” and “One Kiss” from the above.

    Why is America not embracing “One Kiss”? It is #6 up here in Canada and it went #1 in twenty other countries.

    “Sangria Wine” is kind of disposable and repetitive…

    Glad that “Sangria Wine” fizzled and they gave up on it, despite coming up with a dance for it.

    “In My Feelings” came out of nowhere and swiped the Song of the Summer title.

    Sorry “I Like It”…
