Why No Single Tune Felt Like 2016's Song of the Summer


After three of the weirdest, most discombobulating months in recent American history, summer officially ended yesterday— though it may not feel like it. Yet autumn’s arrival does allow us to close at least one matter, and that’s this year’s song of the summer: that one tune that, for better or worse, dominated June through September and attains an inescapability in the spaces of barbecues, theme parks, pool parties.

Call it, maybe.
