Spotify reveals the songs that listeners streamed most this summer, with over 786 million streams thus far, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito – Remix” featuring Justin Bieber takes the number one spot globally.

DJ Khaled and French Montana round out the top three most-streamed songs globally, with Khaled’s “Wild Thoughts” featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller at No. 2, and French’s “Unforgettable” coming in at No. 3. Other artists making up Spotify’s global songs of the summer list include Calvin Harris, Rita Ora and Ed Sheeran who is coming to Hong Kong in November soon for his Asia tour.

Latin music continues to heat up the summer with five Spanish-language songs featured in the global Top Songs of Summer list, including “Mi Gente” from J. Balvin ft. Willy William, “Felices los 4” from Maluma, “Me Rehúso” from Venezuelan singer Danny Ocean and both the original “Despacito” and remix featuring Justin Bieber.

“2017 gave us the summer of Latin Music” said Rocio Guerrero, Spotify’s Head of Latin Culture.

“For the first time, ever we have seven Latin songs on Spotify’s global chart, including both the original and remix of “Despacito”, this summer’s undisputed anthem. Another huge success has been Danny Ocean, one of Spotify’s emerging Latin artists who has racked up more than 318 million streams with “Me Rehúso.”

In Hong Kong, the top song streamed for the summer is Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito – Remix” featuring Justin Bieber, which is really no surprise. The catchy beat definitely gets everyone grooving and enjoying their summer break. This was followed with “2U” by David Guetta featuring Justin Bieber and “Shape of you” by Ed Sheeran.

The songs of the summer were identified by looking at Spotify’s most listened to tracks between June 21(the first day of summer) and August 27, 2017.
