R&B is hotter than ever this summer, with jams like DJ Khaled's "I'm the One" and Bruno Mars' "That's What I Like" dominating the Billboard charts. Hence, both hit singles made it to the second round of our Song of the Summer bracket. "I'm the One" features Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne, and Quavo, and it's the strongest bet to top "Despacito." But "That's What I Like" remains a top 5 single nearly six months after its release. Which hit single is the Song of the Summer? 🎤 🏖️

In our first round, "I'm the One" made a strong comeback to beat out Kendrick Lamar's "HUMBLE," while "That's What I Like" won over DJ Khaled, Rihanna, and Bryson Tiller's "Wild Thoughts."

Now it's "I'm the One" versus "That's What I Like" in our second round.  Which song makes the cut?


"I'm the One" is the second most popular song this summer, just right behind "Despacito," and the hit single has also topped the Billboard Hot 100. So it's not impossible that "I'm the One" becomes the Song of the Summer.

The money never lie, no
I'm the one, yeah, I'm the one
Early mornin' in the Dawn
Know you wanna ride now (let's ride, let's ride!)
I'm the one, yeah, I'm the one, yeah 🎶
