Pandora’s ‘Billionaires’ program, which launched in 2018 as a way to mark an artist surpassing more than 1 billion streams, is expanding with the launch of eight new genre stations: pop, country, hip-hop, alternative, dance, classic rock, R&B and hard rock.
Each ‘Billionaire’ station features top songs from acts who have crossed the streaming threshold in that genre, with additional tracks and genre stations to be added in the coming months.
Said Jason Aldean, the platform’s top country artist with over 11 billion streams to date: “Pandora’s ‘Billionaires’ stations are cool to be a part of because they’re the biggest songs. So, to be the most streamed Country artist is huge to me.”
To mark the feat, the Billionaires’ program has been presenting commemorative plaque to artists like Ed Sheeran (pictured with Pandora’s Mikey Piff), Taylor Swift, Lil Wayne, Mariah Carey, Bad Bunny, The Weeknd and more.
Listeners can find the new stations in the ‘Billionaires’ module under the For You tab on the Pandora app. For a sample of artists in rotation, see below.
