Spotify’s top summer trends of 2023

Come on Barbie, let’s go party… with the release of the new Barbie movie, pink vibe playlists are everywhere. Let’s take a look at what else is trending.

Summer on Spotify is all about playlists, it always is. From people adding a collection of their favourite tracks, to others collaborating with friends making joint playlists – summer is the time for it. It’s likely more playlists are made through the summer than any other season.

With the use of Spotify’s Blend feature, music listeners can easily find new music to try for themselves. They’re able to easily create a unique playlist that’s based around their preferences. But what are the summer preferences?

The top streamed songs containing summer within the release title are; Cruel Summer by Taylor Swift, Summertime Sadness by Lana Del Ray, Summer by Calvin Harris and Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams. All are songs played on repeat each year.

It seems when the warm weather comes around, music fans want songs to match. What better way to find a seasonal song than to search the name of the season? This is how many go on to find these highly streamed tracks. Songs that never grow old.

Typically, listeners love a throwback around the summer months. This is likely because they’re in a happier, more cheerful mood. Each time the nice weather comes out, songs that Spotify users likely wouldn’t choose year-round suddenly become popular.

With the release of the Barbie movie, the Aqua classic has become popular once again. A cheesy pop hit that will never die out. Despite it not being used within the film itself, there are references to it, and it’s known as Barbie’s song.

Similar songs have risen in popularity too, because Barbie fans are creating playlists with all the related tracks thrown in. You can see in the photo above the songs that have risen to stardom once again. Apparently Barbiecore is quite the popular genre.

As is cowgirl music it seems. Coastal cowgirl has become an extremely popular playlist to generate. It contains some of the top rated country artists. It’s interesting to see country becoming more popular, as previously this wasn’t the case.
