With summer 2014 almost at its end (sad but true), we’ve been looking back at the hit songs that have kept the last three months sizzling. Both musicians and Billboard staff members have made their picks, and now the Billboard readers have made their voices heard – and those voices are all chanting “I-G-G-Y.”

Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX’s chart-topping smash “Fancy” ruled our Song of the Summer poll, grabbing 14 percent of the overall poll results. Iggy’s stiffest competition in the tally was Canadian breakout band MAGIC!, whose reggae-tinged groover “Rude” garnered 8.9 percent of the votes. Rounding out the top 3 was none other than the King of Pop himself -- Michael Jackson’s posthumous single “Love Never Felt So Good” from his Xscape album, grabbed 8.05 percent of the votes.

Check out the top 10 songs from our readers poll below, then come back on Thursday (Sept. 4) when we crown the official Song of the Summer.
