So far, 2015 has been one of the most, shall we say, BLAH years for pop in recent memory. But hey — it’s now the first week of June, and throughout these music doldrums, as always, there have been some strong cuts that have risen to the challenge in a bid to claim the Song Of The Summer crown. Love them or loathe them, a group of popular singles is currently ringing in our collective ears, threatening to saturate the airwaves even more intensely as the months peel off the calendar and spring inevitably leads to summer.
So here’s the deal: We gathered up 12 of those tracks for you to look over below and vote on. Basically, we’re asking you to pick the song you feel has the best chance of becoming this summer’s defining anthem, the way Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX‘s “Fancy” ruled in the warmest months of 2014.
This is just the first of two times we’ll be asking you to vote. We’ll leave this poll up for a week, and the results will determine the final five contenders. From there, Idolator’s writers will take a closer look over the course of a week at each of the Top 5 — reviewing the songs themselves, as well as their chances for being crowned SOTS ’15 — and then we’ll turn it all over to you once more to decide the ultimate winner. Capisce?
