By now, you should have some sand in your backpack from hitting the beach and, hopefully, have your air conditioner installed to stay cool, calm and collected when the heat hits. Summer is here and of course the sounds of the season define these moments and many others. From outdoor music festivals to rooftop parties, every artist hopes to hold the reigns over our summer music playlists.

In TheDrop.FM’s Best of Summer Survey, fans can vote for their favorite rappers and singers in a variety of categories from Best Tour of the Summer to Hottest Body. Check out all of the polls and cast your votes below (you can vote once per hour). We'll announce the winners after the polls close on Aug. 24 at 11:59 PM EST. Good luck!
