In that special week of June people in US were listening to See You Again by Wiz Khalifa Featuring Charlie Puth. Scottish Mussel, directed by Talulah Riley, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while Elon Musk by Ashlee Vance was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Love Island. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Disney Infinity 3.0 or Beyond Eyes.
