Tired of looking for playlist compilations of the biggest TikTok music trends? Well, the short-video platform partnered up with SiriusXM and now has its own radio channel to stream the biggest and most popular tracks over there. TikTok Radio is presented by the app’s creators, tastemakers, top artists, and DJs and is available on channel 4 and as a streaming channel on the SXM App.

The full-time channel was imagined as a radio version of TikTok’s “For You” page, with a cast of creators that includes 8illy, Cat Haley, Hindzsight, Lamar Dawson, and Taylor Cassidy presenting music and sharing the stories behind the trends throughout each hour. The schedule features rising stars, viral hits, and “whatever else the TikTok community is vibing to.”

One of the radio’s programs is “The TikTok Radio Trending Ten,” a weekly countdown of the top 10 songs trending in the social media platform presented every Friday at 3 p.m. ET (though listeners can also find it on-demand on the SXM App). On Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. ET, TikTokers and resident DJs, DJ Habibeats and DJ CONST, also spin a selection of the platform’s top-trending tracks. 

“The creators, who are also presenting the music on TikTok Radio, are deeply involved in the channel and will reflect the unique sound and personality of TikTok that is so enmeshed with today's music culture and community,” SiriusXM president and chief content officer Scott Greenstein said in a press statement ahead of the channel launch. “TikTok creators will be delivering new audio experiences for our listeners as they tap into the latest music trends on TikTok.”

The TikTok Radio schedule is available on SiriusXM.com/TikTokRadio and can be listened to on SiriusXM.us/TikTokRadioSXM. The channel is also available on the go with the SXM App and devices like speakers and Smart TVs.
