Pandora, SiriusXM Debut New Weekly Chart, Playlist

Pandora and SiriusXM have launched a new weekly chart and playlist, The Top Thumb Hundred, that reflects listeners’ favorite recent discoveries, based on Pandora listener data, by capturing the 100 most-thumbed-up new releases on the platform. The collection of songs is refreshed every Monday.

Also debuting today, the same listener data will be used to create the Thumb 20, a new show on SiriusXM’s Pandora Now, Channel 3. This new weekly countdown — hosted by radio and TV host Chris Booker — will showcase the 20 most-thumbed-up new releases across pop, hip-hop and R&B.

Dan + Shay, whose new single “I Should Probably Go to Bed” debuted last week, are the special guests for the inaugural Thumb 20. Additionally, A$AP Ferg will join Pandora’s Head of Hip Hop, J1, to speak to his Thumb 20 debut “Move Ya Hips” (featuring Nicki Minaj). The countdown airs every Tuesday at 6 p.m. ET, and re-airs on Wednesdays at noon ET, Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET, and Fridays at 5 p.m. ET.

“We’re excited to provide this early indicator of song performance, capturing and ranking the newest music every week,” said Alex Luke, SiriusXM and Pandora’s Senior Vice President, Digital Content. “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.”
