HITS' HIGH FIVE: WE DON'T NEED NO BADGES

Every time the phone rings at the HITS office we’re hoping its an invite to Trump Tower to discuss becoming drug czars in the new administration. What Elvis aspired to do for Nixon, we feel we can do for America. For now, we’ll just keep you up to date with music news and this week there was plenty.

Beyoncé and Adele are up for three of the top Grammy categories—Record, Song and Album of the Year. Bey’s total tally was nine followed by DrakeRihanna and Kanye West with eight each.

Neil Portnow and the Recording Academy have kept the Grammy nominations process a mystery. It’s time to pull back the curtain.

I.B. Bad points out that A&R has also become a greater priority at the label-group level. 

Streaming revenue is significantly outpacing sales for XO/Republic's The Weeknd as he dominates the HITS Song Revenue Chart.

Irving Azoff’s Global Music Rights organization is suing the Radio Music Licensing Committee over “the illegal actions of a powerful cartel of radio station owners colluding against songwriters.”
