HITS' HIGH FIVE:
NO LIES HERE

While in Washington the debate the last two days is over who lied to whom, let us seek out a SCIF and point out that we try our hardest to tell the truth with only the occasional innuendo, wisecrack or red herring. And the best moments of our “truth” over the last week—aka the HITS High Five—are here for your reading pleasure.

Ariana Grande’s One Love Manchester concert raised more than £10m for the victims of the attack during her U.K. concert. Manager Scooter Braun and CAA’s Head of Music Rob Light told us what it took to produce the show, and to keep the fund-rising effort, moving, Ariana released her rendition of “Over the Rainbow” as her first charity single “One Last Time” hit #2 in the U.K.

Early in the week, we learned who Katy Perry worked with on her Capitol album Witness, which promptly went to #1 at iTunes.

I.B. Bad weighed in on two indie entrepreneurs who are among a select group of rainmakers, Daniel Glass and Ron Perry.

Spotify had a big week. Taylor Swift’s music returned, the streaming service unveiled its “Secret Genius” and they connected with the sounds of summer, past and present.

How huge is Justin Bieber? Soon after the midnight release of with David Guetta, "2U" (What A Music/Def Jam), the Top 3 singles at iTunes all featured the Biebs.
