New York’s HOT 97 and Los Angeles’ Power 106 will be included in Beats Music’s streaming service when the program launches on Jan. 21, reports Emmis Communications. Both stations will be classified exclusively as hip-hop radio stations, for which XXL will curate playlists. Additionally, Ebro Darden’s “The Tunnel! Playlist!” is set to be a featured highlight.
“Beats Music combines the emotion only a human created playlist can give you with the best personalization technology can deliver,” said Ian Rogers, Beats Music CEO. ”With this you get not just the music experience only a talented DJ or music expert can deliver, but also the right one for you right now.”
