Not Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, Or Wiz Khalifa — Nope, THIS Artist Officially Had The Song Of The Summer!

no title

Who could’ve guessed?!

Move over Bad Blood, and so sorry Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa, because none of you can claim the top spot as song of the summer — at least according to Billboard!

The music outlet looked at the data and trends and determined that the song of the summer — perhaps an unlikely winner — is actually Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix) by OMI!!

Even OMI himself, born Omar Samuel Pasley, was a bit shocked by his crossover success coming to the United States from Jamaica! He said:

“Every artist from Jamaica wants to thrive in the U.S. There are so many great songs that deserve the recognition that ‘Cheerleader’ has had. I’m just grateful.”

No kidding!

OMI is in good company, though; the singer is now the third rookie act in the last four years to win song of the summer with his first Hot 100 hit! He joins 2012’s Carly Rae Jepsen (Call Me Maybe) and 2014’s Iggy Azalea (Fancy) on the list, so it’s surely been a memorable summer for him!

Ch-ch-check out the video (below) if there’s any possible way you haven’t yet seen it:

Congrats, OMI!!

What do U think — should it have been the song of the summer??
