THE DEATH OF PRINT JOURNALISM, PART 8,605

Mendes, Jay Z Appear in Disreputable Trade Rag; Their Reputations Remain Intact

Island troubadour Shawn Mendes graces the cover of our most recent print edition. Mendes has made the transition from online phenom to mainstream force, and he’ll soon be delivering a #1 bow for David Massey and team with his full-length debut, Handwritten. All of which
should console him as he copes with appearing on the cover of our unfortunate rag.

Our Contents page VIP, meanwhile, is Jay Z, who's in the spotlight again—this time as streaming entrepreneur. His new venture, Tidal, finds him collaborating with an array of fellow music stars and challenging the biggest players in the game.

The high-profile rollout has hit some speed bumps (several of which are detailed in the issue), but we’ve learned never to count J-Hova out. Still, this HITS Contents Shout-Out is probably not the kind of stream he was hoping for.
