We take our summer soundtracks very seriously, which is why we're putting the title of this year's Song of Summer in the best hands possible: yours. Democracy!
Will this year's crown go to a single that's heading into summer strong? Or will it be a sleeper hit that gains steam as the months heat up? According to Billboard, the viral infectiousness of 2012's "Call Me Maybe" placed the Song of Summer sticker on Carly Rae Jepsen's iconic single. Do any of these tracks have that meme-worthy possibility?
So many questions, but there's only one that matters: what is the 2013 Song of Summer?!
Nikki Williams "Glowing"
