Now that school is starting up again and our “hot Victoria summer” is coming to a close, all the hottest hot weather songs of summer are here and Spotify kindly gift wrapped them as a playlist.

It’s always nice to see Canadian representation on that list too. Drake made the list at #3 for Jimmy Cooks (featuring 21 Savage) which was streamed over 14 million times.

Justin Bieber also made the playlist for his song Ghost in the #19 position with over 7 million streams.

Spotify’s most streamed songs in Canada isn’t an overly surprising list, but certainly has a couple unexpected nuggets on there. Namely Kate Bush’s 1985 single, Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) coming second for most streams both globally and in Canada. She also managed to beat out Harry Styles – As It Was for the number one spot in his home country, the UK.
