SiriusXM Radio: Taylor Swift Guests On Hits-1

Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift helped launch a new home DJ series on SiriusXM's Hits 1 (Channel 2) Friday, chatting with fans between playing songs from some of today's top artists.  Hits 1 is available free, along with other SiriusXM channels, during a free trial that runs through May 15.

"It's safe to say we are living through unprecedented times right now," Swift said shortly after her set debuted at noon ET. "I hope that all of you are safe and healthy. Obviously we have a lot of time on our hands right now with people being out of school and out of work."

The first song in Swift's home DJ set was Conan Gray's "Maniac."

"Basically I've been obsessed with the new Conan Gray album," she confessed. "So imaginative, so interesting."

"Maniac" was followed by Tones and I's "Dance Monkey," Harry Styles' "Adore You," Justin Bieber's "Intentions" and Halsey's "You Should Be Sad."

During this time when Americans are being urged to stay at home to slow the spread of COVID-19, Swift told fans she's kept busy by cooking, reading and watching lots of movies she hasn't seen before, USAToday reports.

"But mainly I've been online reading, trying to find out ways to help others and just constantly in awe of our first responders and our emergency workers and our health care professionals who are putting themselves in danger every day that they go to work," she said.

“We love to connect fans with their favorite artists, and our home DJ series will bring some of the biggest names in music into our homes as people look for ways to be entertained,” SiriusXM president and CEO Scott Greenstein said in a press release.

Swift, as she wrapped up her hourlong set, had some heartfelt parting advice for listeners. The set will be replayed throughout the weekend on Hits 1, and will also be available on demand.

"A lot of people really are banding together and helping each other," she said. "It's a crazy time right now and you never know who might be struggling, who might be alone. Right now we have to connect with our humanity more than ever before.

"I really, really hope you're quarantining. We will get through this together. I love you guys."
