YouTubers are now privy to a cadre of features, including: 1). Recommended videos and artists based on your viewing history (instead of top videos in the genre), 2). Local concert listings paired with artist vids (listings were previously offered, but now feature video previews) 3). YouTube’s new music chart, theYouTube Top 100, and, perhaps most intriguing, another level of curation in the form of tastemaker partnerships. YouTube has linked up with Spin, Vice, XLR8R and some of its top music vloggers (Anthony Fantano of The Needle Drop for one) to create playlists and offer up picks.
To celebrate the new page, YouTube is featuring an electric guitar in its logo — a tribute to the “Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Guide to Rock,” the first curated playlist on the page. (The Chili Peppers dropped their first video from their latest album I’m With You Wednesday.) Other artists will soon unleash their own guides, including “David Guetta’s Guide to Electronica” on Friday, “Lady Gaga’s Guide to Pop” on Saturday and “Eminem & Royce Da 5’9”’s Guide to Hiphop” on Monday.
