Summer 2017 has gotten off to a magnificent start musically speaking, and fans are in for a real treat. With numerous artists releasing tracks, it can be hard to narrow down a playlist! That being said, these are my personal predictions for hit songs that could potentially become fan favorites as well as endlessly played tracks throughout the summer.

Kendrick Lamar uses exquisite lyricism discussing real life topics while also narrating his own views. Already a fan favorite with its stunning production, Kendrick is known for producing conscious music as well as creating a bridge for casual listeners.

When it comes to making classics, Drake is someone who consistently delivers. Constantly being named one of the best in the music industry. His song Passionfruit showcases an eloquent production with soft lyrics that are sure to relax the mind and even entice intimacy.
DJ Khaled / I’m the One
Khaled is known for producing some of the hottest tracks in the industry as well as creating major collaborations consisting of multiple artists. So it should come as no surprise to find him on this list.

A sure-fire candidate for a summer jam. Knowing the talented producer, fans can assume that more songs are on the way.
Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee / Despacito
