SiriusXM’s ‘Billboard Women of Pop 1000 Countdown’ Spotlights 50 Years of Chart Hits
SiriusXM and Billboard are celebrating Women’s History Month with the Billboard Women of Pop 1000 Countdown.
The Billboard Women Of Pop 1000 Countdown launched on Tuesday morning (March 21) on SiriusXM’s channel 104 and will run through April 1 at 3 a.m. ET. It’s also available on-demand on the SXM App.
The feature spotlights the top 1,000 songs by women from the start of the 1970s through the end of the 2010s (encompassing the top 20 hits with female vocals each year from 1970 through 2019), as ranked by performance on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and via Billboard’s Greatest of All Time chart methodology.
The Billboard Women Of Pop 1000 Countdown spans classics from Barbra Streisand to Billie Eilish, the Carpenters to Cardi B, and Carole King to the Queens of Pop (Madonna) and Soul (Aretha Franklin) (plus “Queen of Hearts”). Other hits on the retrospective range from “Call Me” to “Call Me Maybe,” “Last Dance” to “Just Dance,” and “Love Takes Time” to “TiK ToK.”
The feature is part of SiriusXM’s She’s Got the Mic campaign, in which, every March, SiriusXM and Pandora celebrate Women’s History Month, amplifying women’s achievements and cultural and historical contributions.
