A COVER/CONTENTS
WINNING TICKET

As her album, Positions, continues its impressive run, Republic superstar Ariana Grande graces the cover of the latest issue of HITS, alongside a few of her tweets capturing the emotional roller-coaster that was the recent election. Like most of us, Ari was gratified when the presidential race was called. But she may try to get the decision to appear on this rag overturned.

Monte Lipman and his Republic team don’t need no stinkin’ recounts—the label has been absolutely on fire in 2020, dominating #1 (18 weeks) and #2 (15 weeks) on the chart with top vote-getters like Ariana, Pop Smoke, Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, Post Malone, Drake and Metro Boomin. What’s more, most of these titles have been parked on the upper tier of the chart for months. Indeed, House Lipman earned a 25% share of the Top 100 during election week. Those are unimpeachable stats, though Monte still considers us fake news.
