Sure, it's only April, but we can still dream about hotter temperatures along with (we hope) beach parties and family BBQs. And when we think about what songs will be soundtracking those moments, it's time to start thinking about what could be the Song of the Summer for 2021.
Even though Billboard’s own Song of the Summer chart won’t start up for its annual run on Billboard.com until after Memorial Day, Pop Shop Podcast founder and senior director of music Jason Lipshutz wrote his annual Way-Too-Early Song of the Summer 2021 predictions, so we invited him on to the latest episode to break it all down. Some possibilities include "Leave the Door Open" from Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak's new throwback Silk Sonic project as well as Justin Bieber's latest Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit "Peaches," which will be a perfect addition to your summer fruit salad.
