    Banks x Rdio. Yes, Rdio, not "radio."

    Rdio recently unveiled its evolution to a free, stations-first listening experience, and now it's making another big debut – the first-ever hosted Rdio station.

    Sizzling songstress Banks hosts Rdio's "Artist to Watch" station.

    It features music from 20 exploding artists, including the hostess herself, hand-selected earlier this year by Rdio.

    As host of this station, Banks talks about her just-released debut album Goddess, her musical influences and what artists she's currently discovering and enjoying.

    To celebrate the station and the album, Banks curated a playlist exclusively for Rdio listeners featuring some of the artists that have inspired and influenced her.
