Spotify reveals the most streamed songs of summer 2017

September arrived and as Autumn approaches, the most streamed songs of summer 2017 have been revealed by Spotify. Needless to say that it’s ‘Despacito’ by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber first on the list with a huge 786 million streams.

To be honest, ‘Despacito’ is not only the most streamed song of the summer, but it has also been named as the most streamed track of all time.

DJ Khaled‘s ‘Wild Thoughts’ follows at number two, while ‘Unforgettable’ by French Montana and Bryson Tiller complete the top three.

The real winner of the chart is Latin music. As a matter of fact, Rocio Guerrero, Spotify’s Head of Latin Culture, said in a statement that “2017 gave us the summer of Latin music.” That’s because Spanish-language tracks like J. Balvin’s “Mi Gente,” Maluma’s “Felices los 4” and Danny Ocean’s “Me Rehusó” also pop up, with a total of seven Latin songs on the global chart.
