Summer is in full swing, and if you’re looking for a summer soundtrack, we’ve got a few predictions for songs that will last you through Labor Day. While previous years brought us runaway hits from Calvin Harris and Rihanna, and The Weeknd, this summer is stacked with contenders, ranging from hip-hop to pop to rock.
To help us narrow down our list, we turned to the team at Pandora, who based their picks on a combination of Pandora/Next Big Sound data and insights from Pandora’s curators. These songs will get you in the mood for chill days at the beach, long drives to the country, backyard BBQs and lazy days by the pool.
