HITS HIGH FIVE: NO CLARIFICATION NECESSARY

Welcome to this week’s HITS High 5 where you can be confident we have never confused the word “would” with “wouldn’t.” Now, wouldn’t it be nice to see the highlights of the week? We think it would.

The story of the first six months of 2018 is the take-no-prisoners offensive of Sir Lucian Grainge’s UMG, which has ridden the streaming wave aggressively and with impressive precision.

Valuations of music properties are at an all-time high, rising higher than at any time since Edgar Bronfman Jr., bought Polygram for $10.4 billion in 1998.

The future of branding in Nashville has never been brighter.

Evoking the Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter” with its sweep and swoop, Eric Church’s “Desperate Man” (EMI Nashville) is a song for the moment.

The latest, needle-moving trailer for forthcoming 20th Century Fox biopic Bohemian Rhapsody pushed seven Queen songs into the iTunes Rock Top 50.
