Summer might not officially begin until June 21, but unofficially, the hottest season of the year is here. Bathing suits, sunscreen, and the beach are all calling our names.

You know what else this season needs? More... MUSIC. Songs of summer, to be exact.

What, exactly, IS a "song of summer"? Right now it's what every artist is trying to acquire: the most played song of the season that most ... well, reminds us of summer.

Our favorite warm-weather jams conjure up images of bodies of water, dancing, frozen and/or boozy drinks, and maybe even some lovin'. Preferably all of the above.

To that end, we've compiled a playlist of 21 songs of summer, comprised of #1 hits and hot songs we love that remind us of our carefree time in the sun.

Roll your windows down, turn your radio up, and cruise through this gallery ...

Here are 11 weird musical collaborations that totally work. Get ready to groove!

Seemingly out of nowhere, Floyd Mayweather came out this week and said Shantel Jackson got an abortion last year.

The boxer took to social media - Facebook and Instagram, to be exact - and said he broke off the couple’s engagement last year because Jackson aborted the pair’s twins against his wishes. 

Mayweather even posted a photo of an ultrasound as proof.

He has since removed the items, but it's now clear what set Floyd off in the first place: Jackson is dating Nelly!

An insider tells TMZ that Mayweather feels “betrayed” because Nelly is a member of his inner circle.
