Revealed: The most-listened-to songs of the Kiwi summer 2019

With so many barbeques, beach days and backyard parties, a long hot New Zealand summer demands an appropriate soundtrack.

The arrival of March means autumn is almost on the doorstep, but before we kiss goodbye to our tan lines, it's time to reflect on those blissful days of beats and beers.

In aid of this, Spotify and Apple music have revealed the songs Kiwis couldn't get enough of on their music streaming platforms this summer.

Ariana Grande, Post Malone and breakout act Ava Max could all be heard blasting from speakers around the country, while Six60, who recently sold out Western Springs, unsurprisingly remained Kiwi's favourite local act.

A Star Is Born-fever also swept the nation, with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's hit song 'Shallow' on heavy rotation for many New Zealanders.
