All summer you voted on your favorite jams of the summer as two songs were put up against each other in a head to head battle. Acts like Robin Thicke and Selena Gomez didn’t have the stamina to make it past the first round. While others, like Mariah Carey and P!nk, proved they had staying power. Over the weekend, the 11 winners fought it out in a melee of hooks and beats to determine which song was the ultimate song of the summer. The votes are in and the readers’ 2013 song of the summer is…

“Body Party” by Ciara

One of the biggest comebacks of the summer, Ciara made her way back onto the charts with “Body Party,” a sultry R&B jam that added some extra heat to the summer nights. Her first Top 40 since 2009 was a chart slow burner but it eventually caught on with fans and earned 48 percent of the vote.
