Kid Kelly introduces listeners to Venus, a new addition to the SiriusXM channel lineup.

Venus is a channel unlike any other. It’s a lot of rhythm from a lot of different years. We dig the crates for uptempo, fun songs – favorites that a lot of people still dance and sing along to – and add in the best of what’s now. We’ll jump from Jenny from the Block to Ariana Grande’s “Problem,” then throw in Beyonce, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Calvin Harris, Sia, Sam Smith and Iggy Azalea …

OK, how’s this for a sample set?

Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance

John Legend’s All of Me

Alicia Keys Fallin’

Justin Timberlake’s Mirrors

Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines

Britney Spears’ I’m a Slave 4 U

Shaggy’s Angel

Mariah Carey’s brand-new You Don’t Know What to Do

Anyone who’s ever DJ’d will tell you how fun it is to come up with a mix of old and new that feels brand new, and that’s what we hope we’ve done for you with Venus. And about the name? Venus was the Roman goddess of love and rhythm, and the planet is, after the moon, the brightest thing in the night sky. So a little love, a little rhythm, a little fun the nighttime – meet you on Channel 3.
