MTV is launching a podcast version of “Behind the Music,” the ’90s-era music documentary series that originally aired on VH1, with a selection of the best episodes — updated and remastered for audio. Dr. Dre and Ice Cube will be the first two artists featured, with both premiere episodes dropping on Thursday, July 29. Upcoming episodes will feature 50 Cent, AC/DC, Adam Lambert, Bret Michaels, Courtney Love, DJ Khaled, Duran Duran, Fat Joe, Guns N’ Roses, Madonna, New Kids on the Block, Toni Braxton and Usher. New podcast episodes drop weekly and are available via the iHeartRadio app and on other podcast platforms. Listen to the trailer at this link. The “Behind the Music” podcast is positioned as an audio companion to Paramount Plus’ “Behind the Music” series with new and classic episodes, also premiering July 29. In addition, iHeartRadio’s MTV “Behind the Music Podcast Playlist” features songs from each of the artists profiled in Season 1 of the podcast.
