HITS HIGH FIVE: ALL THE LEAVES ARE BROWN

As America’s major debate turns from whether nationalists belong in the Cabinet to whether marshmallows belong in the yams, we enjoy the falling leaves and kick back with some cru Beaujolais and chronic to reminisce over the last week in the music biz.

Here comes the sum: Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” (Eardruma/Interscope) vaults to #1 on the HITS Song Revenue Chart.

Rob Stringer hits it off with  Ezra Koenig and the next thing you know Vampire Weekend is headed to Columbia.

Steve Barnett knows how to throw a party, but not when to cut off the guest list. Neil DiamondKaty PerryBob Seger and countless others made it to the Tower to commemorate Capitol Records’ 75th anniversary, as did a few knuckleheads from HITS.

While we were still mourning the death of Leonard Cohen and his music was doing brisk business, Leon Russell, Milt Okun and Mose Allison passed away.

From our current special edition on managers, here is Scooter Braun speaking his mind and the oral history of Q Prime, part 1 and part 2.
