Bop to it: Shazam predicts this summer's pop hits

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.

5. Nico & Vinz, Am I Wrong

Following huge success in Europe, listeners in the US are starting to really get into this song.

Oliver Heldens is the latest Euro-house sensation, and the new vocal version of Gecko seems to be taking this underground hit over-ground.

Shazamed nearly 10 million times, this is the most Shazamed track in the world but could go even bigger with more US radio play.

Set to be a number one hit when released on May 25, this dance track has a big summer ahead.

9. Teeflii featuring 2 Chainz, 24 Hours

Produced by the unstoppable DJ Mustard and featuring the always popular 2 Chainz, this track hasn’t even released officially but has already been Shazamed 100,000 times.

10. 5 Seconds Of Summer, Don’t Stop

This Australian band is tipped for One Direction levels of success this year and the signs indicate this track could help them get there. — AFP Relaxnews
