Yes, you are No. 1 once again Luis Fonsi.

Summer is over, at least unofficially. Labor Day weekend is in the rearview mirror, it's dark by 8:30 p.m. now, and the temps are going to slowly (but surely) dip.

So Spotify looked back at the past three months to find the most streamed songs of the summer.

The No. 1 in the U.S. (and worldwide) is pretty damn obvious: "Despacito" (the one with Biebs). It had more than 786 million streams on Spotify through the summer. 

And it's not just a Spotify thing. Earlier this year it became the most viewed YouTube video and most streamed track of all time.

What came after the Daddy Yankee/Luis Fonsi/Justin Bieber hit?

In the U.S. it was all hip-hop at the top.

Lil Uzi Vert's "XO TOUR Llif3" came in second, followed by DJ Khaled's "Wild Thoughts," French Montana's song "Unforgettable," and "HUMBLE." by Kendrick Lamar.

Khaled (again), Post Malone, 21 Savage, Khalid and Childish Gambino rounded out the top 10.

The full list (which is below, or click here) is based on streaming figures from the first day of summer, June 21, through Aug. 27.

A couple former 1Ders got on there, Imagine Dragons shows up twice, Kendrick Lamar lands at 16 in addition to 6, Travis Scott doubles up – it's a solid list. 

Here's the top 30.

And here's kind of a funny piece to it. Spotify tried to predict the big songs of the summer back when June was coming ... and there isn't a ton of overlap with the most streamed list. 

Though to be fair, a song of the summer doesn't necessarily mean the most-streamed.
