We’re pretty bummed about the summer being over and all, but at least there’s one silver lining: we get to crown a winner of VH1’s Battle Of The Summer Jams! It’s been an incredible season for music, and since Memorial Day we’ve had artists like Iggy Izalea, Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, and Nico & Vinz go head to head for summer song supremacy. But now the time has come to announce the winner. Can we get a drumroll please?
“Maps,” by Maroon 5
Your votes have been tallied and the winner of this year’s coveted Song of the Summer title is…Maroon 5! Adam Levine and Co. are back on top with their latest hit “Maps,” which took down monster smashes like “Fancy,” “Wiggle,” “Chandelier,” “Birthday,” “Shower,” and other single-named titles.
And don’t think we’ve forgotten about the Redemption Round, where we let the losers of each of our previous battles have one more shot at the final brawl. A number of hit songs fell short based on your votes, but the artist who got a second chance was Magic! with “Rude”. Thanks everyone, and see you next year!
