It’s Friday, and you know what that means? Another rock-tastic round of Battle of the Summer Jamswhere two hit songs duel it out to see which one you, frankly, jam out to the most. Last week’s round saw Nico & Vinz’s silky-smooth “Am I Wrong” crush Magic!’s “Rude” with a 70-30 split. We guess no one’s finding anything wrong with their hit (alright, no more corny jokes).

Welcome back to the Battle of the Summer Jams where each week two hit songs are facing off against each other to find out just which you love the most. Last week you voted Jason Derulo and Snoop Dogg into the finals with a commanding 89 percent of the vote. Lil Jon and DJ Snake had nothing on “Wiggle.”

This week features two chart-toppers from Magic! and Nico & Vinz. Both are relatively new acts with songs that are tapping into the laid back vibe of the warmer months. But only one song can join the winner’s circle.

Welcome back to the Battle of the Summer Jams where you determine the song of the summer in a weekly battle of chart-topping hits.

But which of the two hip-hop stars will join this female-dominated Summer Jams?

It’s Friday and that means it’s time for another round of the Battle of the Summer Jams. Last week, Katy Perry (“Birthday) faced off against Calvin Harris (“Summer”). And despite having a record called “Summer,” Harris couldn’t beat the chart-topping diva. “Birthday” took 56 percent of the vote. Now that she’s in the winner’s slot, it’s time to find another who will join her and the previous weeks’ winners. Up to the challenge is newcomer Becky G, who is racing up the charts with the addictive song, “Shower.” Her catchy track is up against the Aussie pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer. Their song, “She Looks So Perfect,” has garnered them attention here in the U.S.

Battle Of The Summer Jams: Calvin Harris Vs. Katy Perry

Welcome back to the Battle of the Summer Jams. The weather is heating up and so are the music charts thanks to two new songs from both Calvin Harris and Katy Perry. Both artists have a proven history with making summer the best time to dance. It’s a surprise they haven’t teamed up for the ultimate summer jam since Harris has no problem working with pop’s top divas (Ellie Goulding, Florence Welch and Rihanna) and Perry has an ear for smart producers. Just ask Dr. Luke and Kesha. But enough chit chat, it’s time for “Summer” to face off with “Birthday.”

Welcome back to the Battle of the Summer Jams. After Iggy Azalea and Ariana Grande duked it with their respective chart-topping hits, “Fancy” and “Problem,” we’re putting the men to the test. In a battle between two You Oughta Know artists, alumni Ed Sheeran is going up against newcomer Sam Smith. Nearly three years after releasing his debut album, Sheeran is back with his sophomore LP and a new song, “Sing,” raising up the charts. Meanwhile, Smith has been getting tons of love (and hype) in the UK and is now bringing his British swagger to the U.S. His latest single, “Stay With Me,” is getting attention thanks to an assist from Mary J. Blige.

So who will win the YOK battle? That’s up to the fans.
