Claiming the coveted "song of the summer" title means going down in music history for representing the state of American culture at its hottest — or that you simply got the dance floor moving and became synonymous with fun in the sun. Hits like Los del Río's "Macarena," Christina Aguilera’s "Genie in a Bottle" and Lil Nas X’s "Old Town Road" are just a few of those now-classics that reached similar heights and became total reminders of summertime. And 2020’s favorite tracks will appear on countless warm-weather playlists of the future as we begin to associate them with this all-too-interesting period of time.

This year, the state of the world (and our ability to enjoy most oh-so-summer activities) is dramatically different. As the coronavirus pandemic shows few signs of slowing, it’s not the time to relax at the beach or host late-night chill sessions with friends. Fortunately, this hasn’t stopped artists from making sure the summer stays sizzling — at least for our ears — with some amazing music. Which of these hits earns the top spot on your "song of the summer" playlist?
