HITS HIGH FIVE: THE INDIO WIND

While we’re rethinking our flower crown-harem pants-clownshoe outfit for day one of Coachella, we encourage you to forget our fashion faux pas and remember the good work we did last week. Here’s the HITS High Five.

Streaming has injected enormous new energy—and money—into the marketplace, and the labels that have fully committed to the new paradigm are reaping the benefits. 

IB Bad gave the sort of thorough examination of Q1 2018 that would make a proctologist proud and a look at Spotify’s first week as a public company. 

Academy of Country Music chief Pete Fisher had a lot to consider in his first year on the job as he heads into “Country Music’s Party of the Year.”

David Massey plans to leave Island Records, we hear, to open a multifaceted music venture.

Oliver Schusser was upped to VP of Apple Music & International Content.
