Summer has unofficially begun! With the hot temperatures and even hotter tricks flirting with you, it’s time to start thinking about which track will be “Song of the Summer 2017.” From club bangers to block party twerk-offs, we list 10 jams that could easily consume your playlist this summer.
Here are 10 pop songs we think are contenders for Song of the Summer 2017:

The song that you listen to poolside while nursing the sunburn and hangover you got from yesterday’s day drinking.
2. Sigrid – “Don’t Kill My Vibe”
3. HAIM – “Want You Back”
The song that makes you think of the ex you dropped before Memorial Day, hoping to get summer trade, but you just end up drunk-texting him instead.
4. Katy Perry ft. Nicki Minaj – “Swish Swish”
The song you hate to admit to love — like everything else Katy Perry does.
5. Carly Rae Jepsen – “Cut to the Feeling”
This is the song you perform over and over and over again for your Instagram story audience and then are sick of by July 4th weekend. Was it worth the 87 views?
6. Drake – “Passionfruit”
The song you pretend to like more than you actually do because it’s Drake and people who listen to Drake are cool.
7. Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee ft. Justin Bieber – “Despacito (Remix)”
The song you pretend to lip sync to while driving with the windows down, even though you don’t know a word of Spanish. Very Valentina of you, if you will.
8. Major Lazer ft. Travis Scott, Camila Cabello & Quavo – “Know No Better”
The song that makes you think you know how to twerk, so you do so at your block party with the neighborhood kids who just stare.

The song that Becky holds your drink for.
