The partnership includes the Songs of Summer Galaxy NFT, which will give Galaxy owners early access to the weekly chart.

Billboard and Samsung are teaming up for the 2021 Songs of the Summer chart, which will return to Billboard.com on June 22.

The 20-position Songs of the Summer chart tracks the most popular titles based on cumulative performance on the weekly streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Billboard Hot 100 from Memorial Day through Labor Day (this year encompassing charts dated June 12 through Sept. 11). At the end of the season, the top song of the summer will be revealed.

As part of the Samsung Summer of Galaxy celebration, Galaxy owners will have exclusive access to preview the Songs of the Summer chart a day before it's released to the public each week, starting June 21, by redeeming the Songs of Summer Galaxy NFT, an animated image of the weekly chart created by Fanaply.

In addition to the Songs of the Summer chart, Galaxy owners will also get a three-month Billboard Pro membership, which includes access to all of Billboard's 250+ charts, 24/7 breaking news, timely deep dives, expert commentary and more.

DaBaby's "Rockstar," featuring Roddy Ricch, wrapped at No. 1 on Billboard's 2020 Songs of the Summer chart, after ruling the tally for 13 of the 15 tracking weeks last year. Rounding out the 2020 Songs of the Summer top five: The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" (No. 2); Jack Harlow's "Whats Poppin," featuring DaBaby, Tory Lanez and Lil Wayne (No. 3); Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage," featuring Beyoncé (No. 4); and SAINt JHN's "Roses" (No. 5).
