Kiss FM has curated a list of the biggest summer songs of the last decade. To come up with their winner, they teamed up with Shazam to see which track was searched for the most. While the list is extremely EDM-oriented, one song stood above the rest—"Lean On" by Major Lazer, DJ Snake, and .

Just behind the winner in second and third place, respectively, are "Despacito (Remix)" by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber and "Wake Me Up" by Avicii and Aloe Blacc. Also included in the top 50 is music from Calvin Harris, ZHU, and Skrillex and Diplo's supergroup Jack Ü. After analyzing the ranked songs, The Mail concluded that 2018 is the most represented year on the list but 2015 has the most tracks in the top ten.

Kiss FM host Tyler West spoke about how the list serves as a way to help us look ahead at the bright future instead of letting the ongoing global health crisis get us down.
