In a week where we lost Leonard Cohen, the news cycle was dominated by a single story. The music business carried on—mostly in a daze—and deals were still struck, people were honored and the Top 10 still had 10 records in it.

Sir Lucian Grainge's UMG fueled better-than-expected results to bolster Vivendi’s third quarter earnings thanks to a 68% gorth in streaming revenue.

Todd Moscowitz has launched Cold Heat, a JV label with UMG, in a deal similar to Scooter Braun's Schoolboy imprint.
