Pubco Is So Hot It Can't Feel Its Face

SONGS Music Publishing is having a bit of a moment. The pubco currently has six records in the Top 20 at Pop radio. For starters: Fresh off the massive “Earned It,” the pubco is celebrating another smash by writer The Weeknd, “Can’t Feel My Face,” now Top 10 at iTunes and enjoying a meteoric rise at radio.

Diplo is watching his Major Lazer and Jack Ü projects blow up, as well as the ascendency of Sia’s “Elastic Heart,” which he produced.

DJ Mustard, who helmed Urban-format monsters for Big Sean and Jeremih, now has new ones with Omarion’s "Post to Be" and Kid Ink’s “Be Real."

The pubbery also has writers on Mark Ronson's multiformat juggernaut “Uptown Funk,” Fifth Harmony's platinum Pop smash “Worth It” and Fall Out Boy’s “Uma Thurman.”  Alternative clients X Ambassadors, have hit #1 at Alternative radio  with “Renegades,” while Andrew McMahon just scored first Top 10 at the format.

In a related story, on his last L.A. visit SONGS’ Ron Perry (who's said to be very involved in Lorde’s new record) couldn’t feel his face either, which may have had something to do with the scotch.
