Post What will be the song of summer?
I'm surprised there hasn't been a thread for this yet. What does everyone think will be the breakout song this summer? This year's Call Me Maybe or Fancy or Boom Clap?

In what parallel universe was Boom Clap song of the summer?

I'm not saying it was THE song of the summer (I also named Fancy, which was last summer as well), but it became a pretty big breakout hit that played constantly on the radio.

Something by a rapper.

Maybe Kelly Clarkson's "Invincible."

Both have already hit big in the other major music markets. Matter of time before they smash in the US.

I was gonna start a summer jamz thread almost a month ago, but I wanted some contenders to pop up first. I'm still waiting...

This has been my summer jam thus far, and I suppose it has a small chance of crossing over. The chorus is infectious.

Yeah, "Hypnotic" is a good song, but mainly just the chorus. I hope it's not ruined (overplayed) by being the song of the summer. I have never heard of Zella Day. I feel like I'm 50 years old already.

"Cheerleader" has no chance, sorry. It's not only a crap song, but it's also not catchy. It's just irritating (even on the first play). The song of the summer only becomes annoying after months of radio play.

"Lean On" is the perfect candidate. It's funky and cool, but it clearly has a very limited shelf life (like, a summer)...then people will be cringing at why they thought it was good. I'm liking it right now, but I know I will hate it if I hear it in 2016. There's your winner.

Lean On is kinda old already. Don't think it will spread into summer.

Cheerleader and Hypnotic don't sound like songs of the summer at all. Cheerleader is atrociously bad.

This, maybe? The lyrics are bad but the beat is hot.

"Bad Blood" has potential, but it alone will never be the song of the summer. Maybe a remix will be, though. I would go for "Lean On". That "..Mother Fucker" song is just too obvious, though it does have a summer sound to it.

Bad Blood won that title when the video dropped.

This contest is over.

Lean On will be second, IMO.

I haaaaate Cheerleader, it's so fucking stupid and annoying.

I kind of want '' Where Are U Now'' by Skrillex and Diplo to be the song of the summer, but I'll go with Lean On.

It has been "remixed". Taylor removed both her verses and put Kendrick Lamar in to replace them. Then she added dubstep to the chorus. It makes a good song much much worse, but it'll get enough buys to be #1 for a few weeks until a real summer jam comes.

Yeah, I think it's going to peak before summer even starts.

This is a bit catchy, and she is very, very sexy. Maybe she can revive her flagging fortunes a bit and score at least a modest chart hit:

Not bad. Though, as attractive as she is, she has NO idea how to be sexy.

Cheerleader has been out for months, that should exclude it from being in the running.

It has to be Bad Blood.
