SiriusXM & YouTube Team Up on New 'Chill Trending Tracks' Feature: Exclusive
The Internet is on your radio, as long as that radio is satellite.
SiriusXM and YouTube have a long-standing relationship with one another. Maybe you've sifted through your stations and heard Jenna Marbles hosting the YouTube 15 on Hits 1. Well, prepare to hear your top videos making their musical way onto SiriusXM's Chill, on Channel 53, as the video site hosts a new weekly segment called “Chill Trending Tracks – Powered by YouTube.”
There are similar shows like this on pop and country stations. It will be similar to the already-popular YouTube EDM 15 on SiriusXM's BPM, which helped spur the growth of Marshmello, San Holo, Party Favor, and more. “Chill Trending Tracks” will focus on rising stars of deep house, along the lines of Kygo, Duke Dumont, and Moby. Emma Jensen's “Closer” honored as the first highlight.
The first episode airs Friday, April 28, at 11 a.m. EST. Emma Jensen's “Closer” will be honored as the first highlight. Listeners can tune in via the SiriusXM app and online.
