THE DEATH OF PRINT JOURNALISM:
DRIVER’S SEAT EDITION

21 Savage and Metro Boomin have had a superb chart run with their #1 set, Savage Mode II, out via Boominati/Republic/Slaughter Gang/Epic, and they continue to rack up big streams. Savage also recently collected no fewer than 21 RIAA certifications, four of them multiplatinum, for his various hits. The duo’s only regret? Agreeing to appear on the cover of this out-Moded mag.

As Vivendi formalizes plans for a UMG IPO in 2022, label-group honcho Sir Lucian Grainge is once again in the spotlight. With overwhelming marketshare and billions of streams, Universal’s knight is enjoying another extraordinary year as he moves his strategic pieces, in Churchillian fashion, around his global war room. He’d probably also like to move this valueless rag to the circular file.
