HITS HIGH FIVE:
ROLL 'EM EASY

“Roll another one, just like the other one.” You’re thinking Lowell George! We’re thinking Lowell Farms and a pre-rolled welcome to the weekend. Speaking of pre-rolled, here is this week’s top stories cured, de-stemmed and seeded.

After a six-year run at Columbia Records, Joel Klaiman will be ankling his post as EVP/GM.

Travis Scott could be headed for the year’s second-largest debut, behind Drake’s 732k and just ahead of Post Malone’s 461k. He’s #3 in the U.K. with three Top 40 singles. 

At the fifth annual Capitol Congress, Sir Lucian Grainge praised Capitol as a prime example of how to build a label through the artists it signs. Everybody was there, even Paul McCartney. And clearly, Steve Barnett has not made many mistakes during his tenure, though he did make one—posing for a photo with these clowns.

In what could be a game-changing alliance, Spotify has been named the official go-to music partner for Samsung. The streaming service will be deeply integrated into the electronics company’s devices in the very near future.

The film world is wringing its hands over the idea of honoring a “popular film” and removing categories for the broadcast. What about their schedule change and its effect on the Grammys?
