Summer 2020 confirmed something that most music fans knew for a long time—recording a remix is the best way to get your song to the top of the charts. These five songs certainly confirmed that and we’ve been hearing them all summer long.
Megan Thee Stallion – “Savage” (Beyoncé Remix)
“Savage” was already the biggest TikTok hit of the year-long before Beyoncé jumped on board, but her involvement made it 100% better.
Doja Cat – “Say So” (Nicki Minaj Remix)
Doja Cat’s hit song “Say So” had a similar journey to the top of the charts like “Savage.” It was a huge TikTok hit before Nicki Minaj recorded the remix that helped this song hit No. 1.
