The 20-position Songs of the Summer running tally tracks the most popular titles based on cumulative performance on the weekly streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Billboard Hot 100 chart from Memorial Day through Labor Day (this year encompassing charts dated June 6 through Sept. 5). At the end of the season, the top song of the summer will be revealed.
Notably, “Savage” leads the Songs of the Summer chart without having topped the weekly Hot 100 during each of the season’s first two weeks. After it led the Hot 100 dated May 30, the song has ranked at No. 2 on the June 6 and 13 charts. Still, its total chart points over the two frames are enough for it to perch atop the summery summary.
