Spotify is making the jump into original programming, and one of its first efforts will be Traffic Jams, a weekly show where a musician and a producer who have never worked together before will link up in the back of an SUV.

The eight-part series, which is co-produced by Russell Simmons’ All Def Digital, will start with T-Pain working with producer Southside to create a song as they drive through L.A. rush hour traffic. The challenge is to complete a whole new song by the time they reach their destination, where they will then perform it for a live audience.
