Spotify has unveiled the most streamed tracks of the summer

Spotify has unveiled the top UK and global songs of the summer, featuring hits from Drake, Cardi B and George Ezra. Drake has taken the top spot, with his track "In My Feelings" picking up 393 million streams between June 1st and August 20th. George Ezra's infectious hit "Call Shotgun" was the most streamed track in the UK within the period, ahead of Drake and Dua Lipa's "One Kiss".

Another notable star on the list in frtyfve featured Chicago rapper Juice WRLD, whose single "Lucid Dreams" has made it to number 4 on the Global Songs of Summer 2018 list. Competing in style with high flying introspective and melodic rappers Travis Scott and Post Malone, he has been sat comfortably on Spotify's global chart for the last two months.

Talking about his breakthrough, Spotify's head of urban music, Carl Chery said:
"Juice WRLD is undoubtedly the breakout star of the summer. His rise was one of the quickest in recent memory but his music has proven to have staying power. His knack for melodies and his willingness to be vulnerable on songs like ‘Lucid Dreams’ connected with his audience in a real way."
