The music app’s annual Sounds Of Summer playlist has been released and it looks good.
Music app Shazam has unveiled its predictions for the hit songs of this summer, with British artiste Ed Sheeran’s single Sing set to be blaring out of the radio for the next few months.
Based on the national music charts and the most-Shazamed songs of the year so far, the annual “Sounds Of Summer” list is well-known for accurately predicting hits. So here is a sneak peak at the tunes we’ll all be dancing to:
1. Ed Sheeran, Sing
With one million Shazams and counting, Sheeran’s Pharrell-produced track is set to make the British singer an even bigger success.
2. Ariana Grande featuring Iggy Azalea, Problem
This collaboration featuring one of the hottest rappers of the moment is proving to be huge with Shazam users.
3. Sam Smith, Stay With Me
The guest vocalist for Naughty Boy and Disclosure has been Shazamed over 15 million times to date.
4. Luke Bryan, Play It Again

5. Nico & Vinz, Am I Wrong
Following huge success in Europe, listeners in the US are starting to really get into this song.
