The channel’s flagship show is OVO Sound Radio a weekly, “musical art gallery” hosted and curated by OVO Co-Founder Oliver El-Khatib.

Earlier this summer, the rapper broke chart records with his latest album, the electronic-based Honestly, Nevermind. The album holds the record for first-day streams globally for a dance record on Apple Music and hit charts around the world. The project also debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 while topping the charts in the Netherlands, New Zealand, Switzerland, and landing Top 10 positions in the UK, Germany, Australia, and across continental Europe.

It’s his 11th album to ascend to the top of the charts and follows last year’s Certified Lover Boy, which scored the rap mogul his tenth No. 1 album and the biggest album debut in over a year at the time. CLB scored an astounding one billion plus streams within its first week and bowed at No. 1 across multiple charts around the world.
