NEW YORK, NY -- The best time of the year is almost here -- summer! It’s time to kick back, splash in the pool or head to the beach. But what's summer without an anthem? It’s the song everyone knows and sings non-stop at all the backyard barbecues and pool parties.

Well turns out, there is a science to picking that summer soundtrack and Shazam has it all figured out.

If you don't already know, Shazam is a mobile app that can help you identify any song that's playing. Just hold up your phone and Shazam!

So, using data from millions of listeners around the world, Shazam is able to measure music trending and predict a winner.

Now, there's nothing new about one song taking over the season. Who can forget Bananarama's "Cruel Summer," Sheryl Crow's "Soak Up the Sun" or DJ Khaled’s "I’m on one?" They were big hits!

This summer, Shazam is predicting tracks like Drake's "One Dance," Desiigner's "Panda" and Kiiara's "Gold," all to be in the running.

But which one will win us over? Guess we'll know soon enough.

All we know is summer is always better with a soundtrack.
