Yes! My favorite time of year.
“Happy” peaked too early and Calvin Harris’ “Summer” tried too hard. I had my money on Becky G’s “Shower” or DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down for What” as potential upsets.
But the powers that be at Billboard magazine declared Wednesday that, in a particularly lackluster year for summer jams, Iggy Azalea handily defeated the competition with her ode to “chandelier-swinging” swag. Extra points for the “Clueless”-themed music video.
