As we approach the summer solstice, the song of the summer is yet to reveal itself, leaving everyone eagerly anticipating what will define the season’s soundtrack. The song of the summer has the power to transport you back to that time for years to come and set the tone for the entire season. Just think of the impact of “Hot Girl Summer” by Megan Thee Stallion in summer 2019 as an example.
The tag “song of the summer” has become such a popular TikTok format that anyone and everyone posts a video saying something like, “I think I just wrote the song of the summer.” This has spurred endless parody videos, so the question arises, is it really just a meme now? Spotify does not think so.
