With summer 2018 nearing its close (sorry!) and Drake taking the lead from Cardi B's "I Like It" for Song of the Summer with the viral challenge-assisted "In My Feelings," the Must-Hear Music podcast crew is looking back at the top contenders and challengers for the title of this summer's anthem.

In addition to radio-dominating titles like Ella Mai's "Boo'd Up," Juice WRLD's "Lucid Dreams" and Maroon 5's Cardi B collab, we also talk about our personal Song of the Summer picks, from Backstreet Boys' unexpected return to Childish Gambino's politically charged Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 to Teyana Taylor's ballroom culture tribute.
