Summer’s here, and with it comes the Song of Summer—that jam you hear in every club, store, radio station and party from now until Labor Day. We’re taking bets on what track will be crowned the Song of Summer 2014, and we need you to vote for your favorite.

This week offers plenty of girls singing about kicking their man to the curb—maybe its something about the heat that makes people want to break up?

Check out the latest contenders for Song of Summer and vote now for your pick!

Ariana Grande, “Break Free”

It’s not enough for Grande to have one contender in the Song of Summer playlist, she’s got to drop this jam, featuring Russian-German musician Zedd. The Stars Wars-themed lyric video is pretty boss, too.

Demi Lovato “Really Don’t Care”

Not only does Lovato’s new single make for a great summer-breakup anthem, she filmed the video at L.A. Pride.

Becky G, “Shower”

Some critics have dissed 17-year-old Rebbeca Marie Gomez as the next Rebecca Black, but there’s no denying her uptempo love song has blown up.

Fifth Harmony, “Bo$$”

The first single off this quintet’s upcoming debut album is an addictive girl-power anthem that namechecks Michelle Obama, Oprah and more. “You’re talking to a lady,” the song goes, “I want a Kanye and not a Ray J.” Ouch.

Ariana Grande feat. Iggy Azalea, “Problem”

Dubbed a “a sax-driven, 1990s-throwback-R&B jam” by Rolling Stone, “Problem” gives Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” a feminist twist with a rap by Azalea and an able assist from Swedish super-producer Max Martin.

Sam Smith, “Stay With Me”

With a voice like Boy George, the out crooner is a force to be reckoned with this summer. While “Stay” is more slow-burn than your usual summer jam, it’s the perfect anthem for that warm-weather crush who breaks your heart.

Iggy Azalea feat. Charli XCX, “Fancy”

With a killer refrain and unforgettable video—a pitch-perfect homage to Clueless—Azalea’s latest is here to stay for some time.

GRL, “Ugly Heart”

Another girl group on this week’s lineup, the ladies of GRL make it clear they’re not taken in by handsome devils. “Ok you’re cover boy pretty, stamped with a beauty mark/But it’s such a pity, a boy so pretty/With an ugly heart.”

Robyn and Röyksopp, “Do It Again”

It hurts so good.
