Summer, summer, summertime…

Sun-kissed skin, cook outs, a couple flings, and lazy days at the beach are all ingredients that make our favorite season. However, inarguably the key component to a memorable summer is those good ol’ summer jams.


Her Source did a little digging to present our favorite summer songs from 2000-2012 performed by female artists. With a month left of the season, we want to know, who do you think will be the contenders for Summer ’13?

While you ponder that, take a look at our top picks –  and their runners-up – from the summers of the 21st century thus far in the following pages.
