HITS HIGH 5: HAPPY HOLIDAZE

We know you’ve got presents to wrap, Grammy appearances to negotiate and a concern that your hotel bar in the Maldives lacks the proper understanding of how to make a mai tai, so we’ll quickly wrap up the week in HITS High 5.

I.B. Bad wrapped up the year in two parts. Here’s the first analysis of 2018 and here’s the second installment.

The typists at HITS gathered an assortment of scribblings, texts and notes on napkins from Editor in Chief Lenny Beer to give you 10 Things About the Music Biz That Weren’t Fucking Boring.

We just published a special edition, Rainmakers: History of the Music Biz Three and to offer a sample, here’s a look at UMPG’s Jody Gerson.

Maroon 5 has added Travis Scott to its Super Bowl team. Who else will suit up?

Four Billion Dollars! The money is streaming in at Warner Music Group like never before.

…and if you’re sick of reading, feel free to gawk at our Grammy nominees gallery.
