As we enter the summer of 2017, music streaming service Pandora has offered its annual list of “Songs Of The Summer” predictions.

“They were selected based on a combination of Pandora/Next Big Sound data and insights from our curators,” says Pandora of its predictions.

This year’s list includes a combination of songs that have already peaked at their core formats (if not already achieved massive success) and songs that just launched.

The picks largely skew toward mainstream/pop, although there are some songs directly targeted to formats like rhythmic/urban (including Magnolia and XO Tour Llif3) and country (including Drinkin’ Problem).

The 2017 are listed (in alphabetical order) below. To get a sense of Pandora’s accuracy, we also included the 2016 predictions:
