Spotify released its list of the most streamed songs for the summer of 2018, and Drake’s “In My Feelings” is at the top of that list.


“Kiki, do you love me?”

Spotify called it the “plea heard around the world,” and that is no exaggeration. In addition to being streamed on the service 393 million times between June 1 and Aug. 20, the song gave way to a viral dance challenge that had everyone from Ciara and Russell Wilson to Will Smith recording videos of themselves dancing to the song.

Drake has a total of four songs on Spotify’s Top Global Songs of Summer 2018 list—“God’s Plan,” “Nice For What” and “Nonstop” also make the list.

Cardi B is also a standout on Spotify’s summer playlists.

She makes an appearance on the second most streamed song on Spotify this summer. Maroon 5’s “Girls’ Like You” featuring Cardi B had 293 million streams.

Cardi’s own “I Like It,” featuring J Balvin and Bad Bunny, comes in at No. 3 with more than 289 million streams.
