Pot smokers are having about 20% more sex than non-users according to a study that crunched the data supplied by 50K people between 2002 and 2015. Before we spark up and think about where our night might lead, here are the week’s top stories gathered in the HITS High Five. 

I.B. Bad dishes on the gigantic first-week sales of P!nk’s Beautiful Trauma, the YouTube-Billboard chart fiasco and the bundling gambit.

NBC NewsClaire Atkinson examines the issue of streams and how they’re counted on certain charts.

We lost one of the greats this week, Fats Domino. He fused the sounds of New Orleans—boogie-woogie piano, parade rhythms, early jazz—with an easy-going vocal style, simple stories and a steady beat to lay the groundwork for rock & roll. His influence was widely felt.
