HITS HIGH FIVE: NO SHUTDOWN HERE

Unlike D.C., we never shut down.We’ve been hard at work in between trips to the clinic—some of us have the flu, others just have needs—and here we give you the best of the week’s lot, the HITS High Five.

New label bosses such as Columbia’s Ron Perry and Def Jam’s Paul Rosenberg are making moves quickly. I.B. Bad looks at who’s coming and who’s going.

Soon after we noted that RCA would have two co-presidents, Nipper confirmed the news about John Fleckenstein and Joe Riccitelli.

Lil Pump’s deal at Warner Bros. was never ratified so he’s a free agent looking for a multi-million dollar deal.

Has new Columbia boss Ron Perry made his first signing? Perhaps someone he signed at SONGS Music Publishing?

Warner Bros. Records Co-Chairman & COO Tom Corson has made his first major hire, bringing in Epic’s Laura Swanson  as Executive Vice President, Media & Strategic Development.
