Sundays from October 23 at 12pm on [V] HITS
Want to know what millions of Aussies are Shazaming each week? Find out when Shazam and [V] HITS team up to launch the official Shazam Chart Show. Each week [V] HITS counts down the highest trending Shazamed tracks in Australia playing back the Top 50 music videos.
Every Sunday from October 23 from 12pm midday to 4pm switch to [V] HITS and see the most Shazamed songs of the week. Plus, weekdays from October 24 at 5pm, [V] HITS will play the Top Ten Shazamed songs of the day.
The [V] HITS Shazam Chart Show will be a mix of popular tracks, much-loved favourites, and future trending hits from Australian and international artists. In 2015 the most Shazamed track in Australia was ‘Do You Remember’ from Aussie singer-songwriter Jarryd James – tune in to see what artists are vying for the top spot in 2016!
With 20 million Shazam’s every day across the globe, the Shazam chart can be an early predictor for up and coming artists with new songs often peaking on Shazam before they hit the mainstream. The Shazam Chart Show on [V] HITS can help you find the latest tracks you’ll love ahead of your mates.
Fraser Stark, Group Channel Manager, Foxtel Arts & Music Channels said, “[V] HITS has it covered for the latest in charts and music videos. Following the success of Tweet the Beat on [V] HITS, the channel is extending its partnerships with popular digital platforms that have an ear for music. By teaming up with Shazam, [V] HITS viewers can see more of the most popular songs from home and around the world, some of the greatest hits from past years, as well as discover new artists and fresh tracks to fall in love with. It’s great that we can now bring the fun and immediacy of Shazam trends to [V] HITS.”
Steve Sos, Asia Pacific VP, Shazam, said, “It is great to be partnering with Foxtel and [V] HITS on such an exciting and innovative opportunity given the undeniably strong brand fit between the two brands. The idea of curating the social currency that Shazam’s daily data represents into a video based chart show seemed like an obvious way to further engage existing fans of both platforms as well as music lovers Australia wide more broadly.”
