On the last list, “Butter” held steady at # 1, followed by “Good 4 U” by Olivia Rodrigo and “Levitating” by Dua Lipa, with DaBaby also stable at # 2 and 3, respectively. Doja Cat’s “Kiss Me More”, with SZA, goes up 5-4, swapping places with Justin Bieber’s “Peaches”, with Daniel Caesar and Giveon (4-5).

With the latest song chart of the summer marking the first of 2021 dated after July 4, how often does the Survey’s No.1 track at this point win the season’s contest?

Let’s take a look back at the last 10 years.

No. 1 by July 4 & Eventual No. 1 for the season:
2012, “Call Me Maybe”, Carly Rae Jepsen
2013, “Fuzzy lines”, feat Robin Thicke. TI + Pharrell
2014, “Fantasy”, feat Iggy Azalea. Charli xcx
2016, “One Dance”, feat Drake. WizKid & Kyla
2017, “Despacito”, feat Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee. Justin bieber
2019, “Old Town Road”, feat Lil Nas X. Billy Ray Cyrus
2020, “Rockstar”, feat DaBaby. Roddy Ricch

N ° 1 by July 4 but not a possible N ° 1 of the season:
2011, “Rolling in the Deep”, Adele / Eventual n ° 1: “Party Rock Anthem”, feat LMFAO. Lauren Bennett & GoonRock
2015, “See You Again”, feat Wiz Khalifa. Charlie Puth / Eventual n ° 1: “Cheerleader”, OMI
2018, “Nice for What”, Drake / Eventual No. 1: “In My Feelings”, also by Drake

So, seven of the last 10 No.1s on the Songs of the Summer end-of-season chart topped the weekly survey as of July 4. Will BTS’s “Butter” continue to skew the statistic towards the majority? Despite such a clear division, it’s hard to predict a particular year, as every weekly chart is still potentially one frame away from welcoming a new smash, while the booming hits already released, which could rack up enough points of chart to end with Labor Day.
