Questlove Partners With Pandora For ‘Questlove Supreme’ Show & Strategic Advisor Role

(AllHipHop News) Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson is taking on a new position with Pandora. 

The Roots drummer will curate and produce Questlove Supreme, a three-hour weekly series highlighting music selections and interviews.

In addition, Questlove has been tapped as Pandora’s Strategic Advisor and the first Artist Ambassador.

The musical director of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon will work closely with the company to provide advice and support for artist initiatives and music product strategy.

Questlove is one of the most talented and influential artists of our time,” said Tim Westergren, founder and CEO of Pandora. “His near encyclopedic knowledge of the theory and history of music and his abiding passion for supporting artists of all kinds is a perfect match for our mission. We’re thrilled to have his expertise and counsel, and to share his talents, insights, and love of music with our over 78 million listeners.”

Questlove Supreme premieres on Questlove‘s new Pandora station on September 7 at 1 PM ET.

Featured guests include Saturday Night Live alum Maya Rudolph and Grammy-winning recording artist Kimbra.

“I see in Pandora both a deep respect for the craft of music and a commitment to the musicians that make it their living. When Tim introduced me to the Music Genome Project, and explained its origin and how he and his team developed it, I was blown away,” Questlove told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “Pandora is a company born of a musician’s experience, and I’m very excited to join them in their mission to create a healthy and vibrant industry for artists and fans alike.”
