HITS HIGH FIVE: THE SPORTING LIFE

It was a surprising week: Rams won, Dodgers lost a bunch and none of our fantasy team’s starters went down for the season. Then again, Trump mangled the English language and we still managed to bang out a HITS High 5.

SONGS Music Publishing has been put into play and the possible bidders are…pretty much everyone.

Sam Smith spent the week on top of the world, scoring a #1 single in the U.K.

More than 15.7m viewers tuned in for the televised Hand in Hand hurricane relief concert/telethon, which raised $44m for victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Young Turks soul act Sampha walked away with the 2017 Hyundai Mercury Music Prize for his debut album, Process, which shot to #2 on the U.K. iTunes chart.

Apple unveiled the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus. Meanwhile, via press release, Apple effectively announced that it would, like Spotify and Amazon, have playlist-sharing capabilities in Apple Music, enabling users to make Siri a DJ the way Alexa is on Amazon’s Echo.
