What do you declare as the song of summer, 2014?

The 2014 Song of the Summer is Calvin Harris’s appropriately named song “Summer,” which was the most streamed song internationally over the past 3 months.  Is there a more aptly named song of the summer? Nope.

Ariana Grande’s Problem ft Iggy Azalea is 2nd on Spotify’s global list, with 3rd place going to reggae fusion group Magic! for their debut track Rude, but BnbData Consultancy Services begs to differ. According to the BnbData, Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy,” is the most popular songs.

What do you guys think? Safe to call Scottish DJ/singer/songwriter Calvin Harris’ jam the official song of summer 2014?
