HITS' HIGH FIVE: ROCKIN' THE
RED CARPET

Having prime Hollywood digs was a blessing until this week when we learned the Oscars shut down Hollywood. We have hiked the Cahuenga pass, parachuted from Charlie Walk’s chopper, camped in Jimmy Kimmell’s outdoor stage and ziplined from the Capitol Tower just to get the news out. We’re down to our final rations of cigarettes, Ghost Train Haze and Jim Beam, but we still have a HITS High Five. Envelope please…

With a #1 album secured, Epic's Future shocked the world by releasing a second collection a week later. Titled HNDRXX, it made us wonder if Jeopardy! could do the category Vowel-less Guitar Gods?

Jason Iley's Sony was the big winner at the BRITs, taking home seven out of the 11 awards announced Wednesday night. Equally important, why was Columbia head Ferdy Unger-Hamilton chatting up  Noel Gallagher

It was quite a week for new collaborations: Chainsmokers-ColdplayCalvin Harris with Frank Ocean and Migos and Zedd and Alessia Cara.

Universal Music Group posted its finest financial year since Vivendi bought the company in 2006.

UMG EVP Michele Anthony is the first woman to be a solo honoree as the UJA Federation Music Visionary of the Year.
