HITS LIST BAKES
IN THE HEAT

Paul Tollett makes an appearance in our Top 10 trending topics of the week as the lil desert fest he dreamed up gets underway.

That annual celebration of music and surrounding culture provides a fitting backdrop for this week’s highest-profile industry figures and entities, including Monte Lipman’s scalding-hot Republic (represented by The Weeknd at Coachella), towering figure Jon Platt, A&R star Tunji Balogun, Apple Music’s new dude Oliver Schusser, the adventurous David Massey, the irresistibly harmonious Pentatonix and the Nashville power trio of Scott Borchetta, Carrie Underwood and Jason Aldean, who’ll be rubbing elbows at another desert gathering Sunday night.

Stay cool, girls and boys.
