You connect with your favorite and new musicians on YouTube in so many ways. You sing along with the crowd, get them into the Billboard Hot 100 and even watch them hear their songs on the radio for the first time. Now there’s a new one: the YouTube 15 on SiriusXM.


Beginning today at 6 p.m. ET, you can listen to an hour-long weekly show on SiriusXM’s Hits 1 channel featuring songs from emerging and established artists based on what’s trending on YouTube. The SiriusXM Hits 1 team will select songs to play from established artists based on the biggest YouTube view counts over recent weeks, and songs from emerging artists who are seeing the biggest percentage growth in views. To make the show even more awesome, SiriusXM tapped Jenna Marbles—a.k.a. the hostess with the mostess—to talk you through the week’s song selection.

Why SiriusXM? Along with YouTube, many artists reach fans and get discovered by having their music played on the radio. SiriusXM shares our love of connecting artists and fans around great new music from today’s biggest names like Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea and emerging stars like Shawn Mendes. So, just like a collab from your favorite artists, we teamed up.

The YouTube 15 will air Fridays at 6 and 9 p.m. ET, Saturday at 2 p.m. ET and Sunday at 8 a.m. ET, and on-demand via If you’re not a SiriusXM subscriber, you can also find the featured songs in playlists on SiriusXM’s YouTube channel.
