THE DEATH OF PRINT JOURNALISM: HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL EDITION

Epic Chairman Sylvia Rhone, who graces the cover of our latest print edition, will be celebrated as the City of Hope’s Spirit of Life honoree on 10/10—becoming the first woman of color so honored. It’ll be a sweet coronation, particularly amid Epic artist Camila Cabello’s monster run and Travis Scott's splashy streaming bow. But when we called about this HITS cover appearance, Sylvia wished she’d Rhone in the other direction.

Contents Page VIP John Janick's Interscope is firing on all cylinders, with three new acts in the Top 10 in three different genres: freshly minted #1 DaBaby (hip-hop); Grammy-buzzing breakout Billie Eilish (pop/alternative); and now streaming phenom Summer Walker, who's also soaring to #1 (R&B). It's all part of a career-best year for the label boss, and his company's strongest showing in a decade. Regarding this HITS Contents shout-out, meanwhile, he’d prefer that we buzz off.
