We know what they did this summer. Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello turned up the heat with their second collaboration, “Señorita,” which is Spotify’s most-streamed global song of the summer for 2019. With over 565 million streams since its June release, the hit track has simmered atop Spotify’s Global Top 50 chart for eight straight weeks. 

Camila and Shawn “Señorita” Is Spotify’s Most-Streamed Song Of The Summer Spotify

Listeners also favored another collaboration during the Northern Hemisphere’s warmer months: Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber’s “I Don’t Care” is the second most-streamed song this summer globally, followed by “bad guy” by Billie Eilish.

And a tip of the (cowboy) hat must go to breakout rapper-singer Lil Nas X, whose “Old Town Road” took off in the Spring - as both a meme and a hit song - and the remix featuring Billy Ray Cyrus is the summer’s fourth most-streamed track globally. Proving that he’s no one-hit-wonder, Lil Nas X has a smash in follow-up single “Panini,” too, which is also featured on Spotify's global top summer songs list.

Rapper Lizzo has also had an impressive breakout year, and this summer, her sleeper hit “Truth Hurts” reached fever pitch. Scotish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi also stepped into the (sun)light; listeners around the world couldn’t get enough of his piano ballad “Someone You Loved” this summer.

Another newcomer is Panamanian singer Sech, whose R&B twist on reggaeton is resonating with Spotify listeners as a fresh sound. His collaboration with Darell on “Otro Trago” is one of five Spanish-language songs to land in the top 20 most-streamed songs globally. Also taking off is Puerto Rico’s Lunay, whose “Soltera - Remix” got a great boost from Daddy Yankee and Bad Bunny.

In the US, the most-streamed song of the summer comes from breakout rapper Lil Tecca. His track “Ransom” shot to the top of the US Top 50 chart three weeks ago, and since then, Lil Tecca’s audience has grown from 12 million monthly listeners to over 19 million on Spotify. 

Spotify music editors saw Lil Tecca's potential from the get-go, and in March added his track "Molly Girl" to their Fresh Finds playlist. After debuting "Ransom" in the app Most Necessary playlist in May, the track’s momentum was clear, and it continued to resonate with listeners and grow in multiple playlists, like New Music Friday, Pop Rising, Clout Culture, Today’s Top Hits and of course, on the signature hip-hop playlist, RapCaviar.

“Seeing Lil Tecca's track pop as a result of our team throwing support behind it is so rewarding," said Spotify’s Head of Urban Music, Carl Chery. “As usual, our listeners guide the way, and the energy around ‘Ransom’ is evident from the moment it hits each playlist.”
