Billboard’s Songs of the Summer Chart Returns, Led by Post Malone & Morgan Wallen’s ‘I Had Some Help’

What will be the No. 1 song of the summer of 2024? We’re making our way toward the answer, as Billboard’s annual Songs of the Summer chart returns to today (June 4).


The 20-position Songs of the Summer running tally tracks the most popular titles based on cumulative performance on the weekly streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Billboard Hot 100 chart from Memorial Day through Labor Day (this year encompassing charts dated June 8 through Sept. 7). At the end of the season, the top song of the summer will be revealed.

Post Malone’s “I Had Some Help,” featuring Morgan Wallen, ranks at No. 1 on the season’s initial Songs of the Summer survey. The track tops the Hot 100 for a third week, as well as Hot Country Songs for a third frame. Only one song has earned season-end No. 1 status on the Songs of the Summer chart after leading the Hot 100 and Hot Country Songs – Wallen’s “Last Night” last year.

Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” places at No. 2 on the inaugural 2024 Songs of the Summer chart, followed in the top five by Tommy Richman’s “Million Dollar Baby” (No. 3), Shaboozey’s “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” (No. 4) and Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso” (No. 5).

Prior to “Last Night” in 2023, Harry Styles’ “As It Was” was the season-ending No. 1 hit on the 2022 Songs of the Summer chart, after BTS’ “Butter” glided to a top finish in 2021 and DaBaby’s “Rockstar,” featuring Roddy Ricch, wrapped on top in 2020.
