Summer's wrapping up, but Spotify is still reveling in the season's best tunes. If you're not quite ready to bid adieu to the sunshine months, check out who landed on the Spotify Songs of the Summer playlist. You won't be surprised who pulled in a staggering 600 million global plays and earned the top spot.
