Summer Songs TBT

You may not believe it after this winter, but ... summer has finally arrived. It's the season of sun, sand, surf, outdoor activities of all kinds, and more importantly, some really great music. 

There have been some amazing summer songs over the years. From Luis Fonsi's "Despacito" last year, and Justin Timberlake's "CAN'T STOP THE FEELING!," to older (but still amazing) songs like LFO's "Summer Girls" and Nelly's "Hot in Herre," these were the songs that ruled summers past.

So, what will be this year's song of the summer? It may be too early to tell, or maybe 2018's "Song of the Summer" hasn't arrived yet. But right, there are a few good options including Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey's "The Middle," Cardi B's "I Like It," and more.
