In honor of Black Music Month, SiriusXM is launching limited-time channels and more as part of “The Power of Music Legacy,” a campaign honoring the artists, musicians, and creatives that left their imprint and lasting legacy on the music industry for the next generation.

While SiriusXM amplifies Black music legends and rising stars year-round, June kicks off with a pop-up channel dedicated to and in collaboration with the estate of the iconic artist Biggie Smalls, as well as the premiere of an exclusive channel commemorating the music of New Edition and the return of Black Music Forever.

Additionally, tune in for the debut of “The Whisper Room” with Armani White as well as an exclusive performance from GRAMMY Award-winning artist Coco Jones and new episodes of RZA’s exclusive show, “Wu Wednesdays.”
