THE DEATH OF PRINT JOURNALISM: THE P!NK MOMENT

RCA superstar P!nk graces the cover of our most recent print edition. As her hit “What About Us?” continues to climb at radio, her album Beautiful Trauma, which bowed at #1, was further goosed by her CMA performance. It’s all adding up to quite a moment for the superstar singer/songwriter, though she may feel this HITS cover appearance is one Trauma too many.

Big Machine megastar Taylor Swift is our Contents Page VIP. While her new album's #1 bow is no surprise, the set is also noteworthy in that—in addition to being her fourth straight to pass the million mark—it achieves this milestone almost entirely with sales in 2017. This HITS Contents shout-out, on the other hand, is something she’d prefer to Swiftly forget.
