#1Charli XCX, "Boom Clap"

Singing the hook on Iggy Azalea's "Fancy," Charli has already partially snagged what many have decided is the song of the summer. But we think her solo hit, currently at No. 16 on the charts, has the potential to give the British songbird the one-two, summer-anthem punch.
