About

I Think I Wrote The Song Of The Summer refers to a trend popularized on TikTok in 2021 in which musicians promote their content as "the song of the summer." The phrase became the subject of sarcastic memes in 2023, with people making fun of the creators on the platform.

Origin

The idea of a song of the summer has been around for years, but in the early 2000s, the label "song of the summer"[1] became a competition goal amongst musicians. In 2021, with the rise of TikTok, emerging artists used the platform to promote their work as the "song of the summer," like @alliwalkermusic's TikTok[2] posted on March 2nd, 2021, a video with the caption "I think I just wrote your summer JAM." The video garnered 642,000 views and 114,000 likes in two years (seen below).
