Republic RecordsWhen it comes to Billboard’s official Songs of the Summer chart for 2016, Drake takes the cake.

The rapper’s “One Dance,” featuring WizKid and Kyla, has been crowned Billboard’s #1 song of the summer for 2016.  The publication’s Songs of the Summer chart measures songs based on how they did on the Hot 100 from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and there was nothing bigger than “One Dance.”

Number three is “Don’t Let Me Down,” by Chainsmokers featuring Daya. Sia‘sCheap Thrills,” featuring Sean Paul, is #4.  “This Is What You Came For,” by Calvin Harris featuring Rihanna, is #5. 

Rounding out the top 10: “Panda” by Desiigner; Rihanna‘s “Needed Me”; Twenty One Pilots‘ “Ride”; Fifth Harmony‘s “Work from Home,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign; and Adele‘s “Send My Love (to Your New Lover).”

Last year’s Song of the Summer was OMI‘s “Cheerleader.”
