THE DEATH OF PRINT JOURNALISM: BANG-POP EDITION

The late Pop Smoke remains a formidable presence on the charts with his star-studded, posthumous album on Victor Victor/Republic. The gifted rapper’s life ended tragically early, but his music will be with us for a long while.

As K-Pop sensations BTS fly into the stratosphere (thanks to monster single “Dynamite,” via Columbia), Big Hit’s Bang Si-hyuk is celebrating a new level of stateside success for his charismatic septet. The South Korean exec, who is himself renowned as a composer/producer, will probably find this HITS Contents shout-out no funnier in the original English.
