SPOTIFY SPILLS MORE SECRETS


Spotify
will again honor some of the most creative minds in music at the second annual Secret Genius Awards. Hosted by NE-YO, the show will take place 11/16 at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.

Presenters, performers and the recipient of the Legendary Genius Award will be announced at a later date. The 2017 Secret Genius Awards honored Rick Rubin as the Legendary Genius, Max Martin as producer of the year, J Kash as songwriter of the year and more with performances by Shawn Mendes, Halsey and PartyNextDoor. Find the 2018 nominees listed below.

In a separate announcement, beginning on 9/12, Joe Budden's influential hip-hop and rap culture podcast will be exclusively on Spotify. 

The Joe Budden Podcast will drop every Wednesday and Saturday of each week. Since its inception, the podcast has published over 175 weekly episodes and topped the podcast charts. 

Joe first became known to mainstream audiences with his self-titled 2003 debut album, which featured the Grammy-nominated hit, "Pump It Up." Leading up to his podcast, Budden developed his career as a broadcaster and media personality hosting Complex's Everyday Struggle and co-starring in VH1's Love & Hip-Hop: New York

The partnership adds to Spotify's commitment to providing exclusive original hip-hop content for its users.
