    With Labor Day just around the corner, Spotify has released its Top Songs of Summer 2022 report. To no one’s surprise, it is led by a pair of Brits: Harry Styles and Kate Bush.

    Globally, the most-streamed song between May 29th and August 29th was Styles’ worldwide smash “As It Was.” Despite spending more than 10 weeks at No. 1 in both the US and UK, however, the Harry’s House cut was no match for the resurgence of Bush’s 37-year-old single “Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)” in those countries.

    Thanks to its prominent placement in Season 4 of Stranger Things, “Running Up That Hill” was the most-streamed song on Spotify in the US and the UK, beating out “As It Was” by one spot in both instances. According to the report, first-time streams from Gen Z listeners in the US increased by 7,800% since it was featured in the series.

    Meanwhile, Bad Bunny dominated the global and US lists with multiple songs from his latest album, Un Verano Sin Ti, one of the biggest releases of the year. These tracks include “Me Porto Bonito,” “Tití Me Preguntó,” “Ojitos Lindos,” and “Efecto.”

    Also landing high on the US list are Steve Lacy with his viral hit “Bad Habit,” Drake with his 21 Savage collaboration “Jimmy Cooks,” and Lizzo with her comeback hit “About Damn Time.”

    Styles and Bad Bunny are both on tour. Snag tickets for Styles via Ticketmaster, and you can grab your seats for Bad Bunny here.
