After the strong response last year, we knew we had to ask again. And so, back by popular demand, (RED) posed an easy but divisive question to our followers… what track should be crowned 2023’s Song of the Summer? The poll honed in on 32 songs involving 41 musical artists, and featured the summer’s biggest hits as well as some write-ins and fan-favorites from years past.
A whopping five tracks from the Barbie soundtrack made the bracket, as well as two Taylor Swift songs (Anti-Hero and Throwback winner Cruel Summer). A cover also made an appearance, although voters couldn’t decide between Luke Combs’ or Tracy Chapman’s Fast Car.
At the end of the polling, nearly a quarter of a million votes had been cast. We heard from 10 million people across six continents, sounding off on the tunes that cut through the summer heat. Okay, okay, we’ll stop blabbing and reveal the victor. Drumroll please! The winner of the 2023 Song of the Summer, electrictrified by (FIAT)ᴿᴱᴰ is…
⚡ Seven – Jungkook feat. Latto⚡
Huge congrats to Jungkook and Latto for clinching the top spot! We’d also be remiss if we didn’t mention that this is Jungkook’s second year making an appearance as our Song of the Summer Winner, although last year it was as a featured artist. In 2022, voters elected Left and Right, by Charlie Puth, BTS, and Jung Kook as the season’s biggest bop.
There’s only one question left… any ideas on who will be dropping the greatest hit next summer? We’ll see you all next year to find out!
