A Month In, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee & Justin Bieber's 'Despacito' Is Frontrunner for Song of the Summer
At roughly one-third of the way through summer, the smash has led the Songs of the Summer chart in each of the list's first five weeks.
Just past July 4th, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," featuring Justin Bieber, continues to be the hottest song of the summer of 2017. Over the first five weeks of Billboard's Songs of the Summer chart, the track has ranked at No. 1 in each frame.
The 20-position Songs of the Summer running tally tracks the most popular titles based on cumulative performance on the weekly Hot 100 chart from Memorial Day through Labor Day. At the end of the season, the top song of the summer will be crowned.
Bieber also ranks at No. 2 on the Songs of the Summer chart, as featured, with Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne, on DJ Khaled's "I'm the One." Only one act has ever finished a summer with the top two songs: The Black Eyed Peas, in 2009 with "I Gotta Feeling" (No. 1) and "Boom Boom Pow" (No. 2).
