What are you listening to these days? In 2013, there are so many new artists emerging and creating movements expanding outside of their respective cities in an effort to gain global recognition. We understand that it can get overwhelming at times to pay attention to every rapper and singer crafting bass-thumping tracks and catchy melodies. So that's why we're doing the work for you and putting you on to fresh tunes and artists whose brands are blowing up.

McDonald's kicks off their Urban Bytes segment with TheDrop.fm in the visual above by highlighting three burgeoning artists and some of their new music. Miami songstress Kat Dahlia, New York rapper Bodega Bamz and U.K. chanteuse Emeli Sande each have a distinct sound and a movement to match.
