Ellen DeGeneres is taking her love of music to the next level. The popular talk show host teamed up with Spotify to create a hub curated by DeGeneres herself with custom content, themed playlists featuring her favorite artists, video clips and her “Ellen on the Go” podcast.

“Ellen supports what she’s passionate about by sharing it with her wide-reaching audience of devoted fans, and consistently draws an enthusiastic response, particularly when it comes to her love of music,” said Dawn Ostroff, Spotify's chief creative officer. “We’re the same at Spotify--we both create opportunities for new voices to be discovered and enjoyed by millions--which is why our new partnership is such a great fit. We can’t wait to unveil additional parts of this this long-term collaboration, and help each other reach new and existing fans in fresh and innovative ways.”

Additionally, the streaming service will be featured regularly on The Ellen Degeneres Show through on-air integrations inspired by real time culture trends. To announce the partnership, DeGeneres aired a montage of her favorite Ellen performances of 2018, including Khalid’s “Young, Dumb & Broke,” Camila Cabello’s “Havana” and Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next” among others.
