"Summer, summer, summertime / Time to sit back and unwind." Those infamous lines on DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince's 1991 hot season ode 'Summertime' paint the perfect picture of what everyone wants to do before Labor Day hits: chill out and relax.

There are plenty of tracks released in 2013 that serve as the soundtrack to do just that. French Montana's 'Ain't Worried About Nothin,' Daft Punk's Pharrell-assisted 'Get Lucky' and DJ Khaled's 'No New Friends' featuring Drake, Lil Wayne and Rick Ross are tunes that can be heard blasting from speakers at BBQs, in the clubs and on iPods this summer. Why are fans gravitating toward the artists and their lyrics? We're here to tell you.

McDonald’s continues their Urban Bytes series with TheDrop.fm in the visual above by highlighting some of the top summer songs of 2013. Of course there are plenty more to listen to while basking in the sun, so we're giving you a chance to indulge in these in the meantime.
