As the weather heats up its time to discover the hottest songs that will be the soundtrack to the summer this year.

Every year, as the world turns green and the sun raises its toasty head there is one big question on the lips of everyone: What are we going to listen to whilst we soak up the rays?

Spotify are here with their predicted answers to the question. Spotify’s Songs of the Summer predictions features a collection of new songs from hit artists and rising stars that they feel make the perfect soundtrack to the warmer months spent on the beach and hanging out by the pool.

Spotify promise that there is “something for everyone” with songs spanning genres from pop to hip-hop to Latin. They write: “Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso,” will wake you up in time to get a good spot by the water; “Gata Only” by FloyyMenor and Cris Mj, will remind you to put your phone down on Summer Fridays; Shaboozey’s “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” will be there to console you with party vibes if that summer fling falls apart; and Chappell Roan’s “Good Luck, Babe!” will help you say, “I told you so.”
