THE P!NK AND THE GREEN

RCA superstar P!nk receives a plaque commemorating the massive swath she's cut across the marketplace (details below) as Sony Music chief Rob Stringer and Team Nipper reflect on how big piles of money are a good thing. Later, everyone wondered if Max Martin has met any of those imaginary Swedish bands from Spotify's chill playlist. Seen deciding not to put an exclamation point in our name are (l-r) Stringer, RCA Chairman/CEO Peter Edge, P!nk, manager Roger Davies, RCA EVP/GM Joe Riccitelli, President/COO Tom Corson, EVP John Fleckenstein and EVP/Head of A&R Keith Naftaly.

The plaque notes 42 million albums sold worldwide, 75m singles, 5 billion audio streams and 3.3 billion video streams. Which is, like, a lot.
