Pandora and Sirius XM are teaming up to bring the latest and greatest new music in a place that makes it simple for listeners to tune in.
Pandora’s new Top Thumb Hundred chart and playlists combines all of the most thumbed up tracks of late in one place so listeners can see what everyone else is digging. Pandora will refresh the playlist every Monday to keep it fresh and up to date with the top tunes passing through listener’s libraries.
Using the same breakdown of best-loved music, Sirius XM are launching a new show on Pandora Now called Thumb 20. The show will be hosted by radio and TV host Chris Booker who will play the 20 most thumbed up new tracks of the past week with special guests.
The first week will feature Dan + Shay talking about their new single ‘I Should Probably Go to Bed’ as well as A$AP Ferg discussing his track featuring Nicki Minaj, ‘Move Ya Hips’. It will air every Tuesday at 6pm ET, then repeat on Wednesdays at 12pm ET, Thursdays at 10pm ET, and Fridays at 5pm ET.
SiriusXM and Pandora’s Senior Vice President of Digital Content, Alex Luke said: “We’re excited to provide this early indicator of song performance, capturing, and ranking the newest music every week. Thumbing activity on Pandora has proven to be a great early indicator of listener affinity and now we can provide a glimpse into that, every Monday.”
The first week’s top ranking chart looks like this:
- Dan + Shay – I Should Probably Go To Bed
- Billie Eilish – my future
- DaBaby – NO DRIBBLE (feat. Stunna 4 Vegas)
- DJ Khaled – POPSTAR (feat. Drake)
- Mulatto – Muwop (feat. Gucci Mane)
Pandora’s The Top Thumb Hundred playlist is available HERE. The Thumb 20 countdown, after it airs on the Pandora Now channel, will be available on-demand on the SiriusXM App.
