Turn up an all-new channel spotlighting SoundCloud’s impact on hip-hop & more
Celebrate SoundCloud’s lasting impact on the hip-hop landscape and the new tracks driving culture today with the launch of SoundCloud Radio on Wednesday, September 1st on the SXM App.
SoundCloud Radio’s exclusive window captures the biggest names in hip-hop to tomorrow’s breakout stars. SoundCloud Radio is specially curated to highlight both the biggest names and new releases from the artists who came up on SoundCloud, such as Megan Thee Stallion, Trippie Redd, Doja Cat, Lil Tecca, NLE Choppa, CJ, and introduce the most exciting emerging talent in hip-hop today before they reach mainstream stardom, like Rico Nasty, Roddy Ricch, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Don Toliver, Lil Tjay, Rod Wave, Denzel Curry, Fase Yoda, and more.
SoundCloud Radio follows the crossover success of SoundCloud’s trendsetting hip-hop music show on Hip Hop Nation, The Lookout by SoundCloud. Listeners, artists, and fans are eager to hear, share, and engage even more with what’s happening today in hip-hop, plus experience a first listen to what’s next.
“Being an artist that grew up listening to SoundCloud and uploading my first songs on the platform that are some of my biggest to this day, it’s crazy and exciting to be one of the first artists on the SoundCloud channel on SiriusXM. Thank you, SC,” Star rapper Lil Tecca, who just dropped his sophomore album, We Love You Tecca 2, said about the launch of SoundCloud Radio.
“I’ve been working so hard for the last few years and to hear the first song I ever drop on the radio [on The Lookout by SoundCloud] was mind-blowing! SoundCloud is always looking out for us new artists and I can’t wait to watch other fire and deserving artists get the same opportunity for radio exposure. It inspires me to go harder and make better music for more people to hear!” Louisiana rapper Fase Yoda, who is already garnering millions of views and streams with his newly released first single “Butterflies,” said.
“With The Lookout by SoundCloud driving new music discovery for artists, we are hyped to be partnering once again with SiriusXM on the launch of SoundCloud Radio,” Caiaffa, SoundCloud’s Interim Head of Music, said. “The influence of SoundCloud’s young, diverse community of artists and fans in breaking music is unmatched and SoundCloud Radio is one more way to share their influence and incredible talent with even more fans.”
The channel airs through September 30 and will also be available on satellite and in vehicles on Channel 105 from September 8 through 17.
The Lookout by SoundCloud, hosted by SoundCloud curator Sowmya K., airs weekly at 9 pm ET on Hip Hop Nation, (Ch. 44), with encores on Saturdays at 2 pm ET and Sundays at 11 pm ET.
