Drake and Rihanna Dominate Spotify's Most Streamed Songs of the Summer List

Song of the summer is always up for debate as the weather gets warmer and people rely on artist’s to supply anthems for getting lit between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Right on cue, Spotify has published its list of the most streamed songs of summer and unsurprisingly, Drake, Rihanna, and even Drake featuring Rihanna (#Aubrih) have taken the top spots both in the U.S. and globally. It’s no secret that Drake’s Wiz Kid and Kyla-featured “One Dance” kicked the summer off, but Views cut “Too Good” picked up speed during the summer about the same time as Drake and Rihanna’s relationship began heating up. Of course, Rihanna’s ANTI track, “Needed Me,” also made the list along with her feature onCalvin Harris’ club-ready “This Is What You Came For.” Desiigner, Sia, and Fifth Harmony also made the list with their respective hits “Panda,” “Cheap Thrills,” and “Work From Home,” which recently earned the group an MTV VMA win for Best Collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign.
