SiriusXM and Pandora released a new way for listeners to engage with new music releases. The Top Thumb Hundred, an exclusive weekly chart and playlist that reflects listeners’ favorite recent discoveries by capturing the 100 most-thumbed-up new releases on the platform, launched on Pandora. SiriusXM’s Pandora Now (Ch. 3) channel also introduced a weekly countdown of some of the same songs during the Thumb 20.

The Thumb 20 — hosted by radio and TV host Chris Booker — showcases 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, will be special guests for the inaugural Thumb 20 episode. 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 6pm ET and re-airs on Wednesdays at 12pm ET, Thursdays at 10pm ET, and Fridays at 5pm ET.

The collection of Top Thumb Hundred songs is refreshed every Monday, so music fans can check out the rankings of the latest and greatest music from their favorite artists based on Pandora listener data.

Here are the Top 5 songs on this week’s chart:

  1. Dan + Shay – “I Should Probably Go To Bed”
  2. Billie Eilish – “my future”
  3. DaBaby – “NO DRIBBLE” (feat. Stunna 4 Vegas)
  4. DJ Khaled – “POPSTAR” (feat. Drake)
  5. Mulatto – “Muwop” (feat. Gucci Mane)
