Interview by Simon Glickman

SONGS and RECORDS Founder/CEO Matt Pincus and President Ron Perry are celebrating a #1 chart bow by SONGS writer Lorde, on the heels of big successes from The Weeknd, Major Lazer/Diplo and other pub signings, and strides from label-side breakout Noah Cyrus. That said, the two—who've built SONGS together since 2004—are doubtless singing a song of woe after having to talk to us...

BL$$D ARE THE DEALMAKERS
6/26/17

Producer BL$$D celebrates inking a pub deal with Sony/ATV by posing for this hallway shot with the pubco's Jake Fain. "That blunt your boss gave me tasted great," noted the 21-year-old Atlanta/L.A.-based producer, who's worked on cuts by Ayo & Teo, Lil Yachty, Young Thug, Rae Sremmurd and more. "But I'm not getting a buzz. Is that weird?"

The young producer (though best known for hip-hop breakouts like "Rolex" by Ayo & Teo) has already begun work on pop and R&B projects as well.

GOD, YOUR MAMA AND JOSH KEAR
6/26/17

Josh Kear is sitting in a familiar place: atop the Country charts. The Big Yellow Dog Music songwriter earned his 12th No. 1 for the Florida Georgia Line/Backstreet Boys smash “God, Your Mama, and Me.” Kear penned the track with Hillary Lindsey (BMG) and Gordie Sampson (BMG).

 “It’s hard to write career-changing songs, but Josh Kear has done just that over the years,” said Big Yellow Dog Music co-founder Carla Wallace. “I wouldn’t expect anything less from ‘God, Your Mama, and Me,’ which brought two musical innovators together. Each No. 1 is special, but having a hit with not only Florida Georgia Line but also Backstreet Boys gives it that boy-band cherry on top.”

Kear’s winning streak with Big Yellow Dog began in 2003. His previous chart-topping country hits include Tim McGraw’s “Highway Don’t Care”; Dierks Bentley’s “Drunk on a Plane”; Blake Shelton’s “Neon Light”; Frankie Ballard’s “Helluva Life”; Luke Bryan’s “Drunk on You”; Lee Brice’s “Drinking Class’; and Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats,” “Blown Away,” and “Two Black Cadillacs.” Kear also co-wrote LOCASH’s current single, “Ring on Every Finger.”

 “God, Your Mama, and Me” is also Big Yellow Dog’s third Country No. 1 in the past three months, coming on the heels of Lauren Alaina’s “Road Less Traveled” (co-written by Meghan Trainor) and Josh Turner’s “Hometown Girl” (co-written by Daniel Tashian).
