‘savage love’ soars to no. 1

JAWSH 685, JASON DERULO AND BTS’ “SAVAGE LOVE (Laxed – Siren Beat)” blasts from No. 8 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, aided by new BTS remixes released Oct. 2. “Savage Love” drew 16 million U.S. streams (up 32%) and sold 76,000 downloads (up 814%) in the week ending Oct. 8, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It also tallied 70.6 million radio airplay audience impressions in the week ending Oct. 11. BTS scores its second Hot 100 No. 1, after the septet’s “Dynamite” debuted atop the Sept. 5 chart. Derulo adds his second leader, following his first entry, “Whatcha Say,” in November 2009. He ends the longest wait between No. 1s (11 years and 11 months) since Dr. Dre (12 years, two months and three weeks, from 1996 to 2009).…

BLACKPINK’S “LOVESICK GIRLS” lands at No. 1 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart and No. 2 on the Billboard Global 200. The track, sung in English and Korean, drew 123.8 million streams and sold 26,000 downloads globally in the week ending Oct. 8 (with 114 million streams and 17,000 sold in territories outside the United States), according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

are we reaching peak streaming subscriptions?

WHEN IT COMES TO technology startups, investors tend to focus on TAM, or “total addressable market.” In venture capital argot, it’s the number of people who might be interested in a service, minus those who can’t afford it or don’t have the necessary technology — say, the number of people who might use the internet to stay in touch with friends or pay to watch movies at home. These numbers tend to be big, but they’re not infinite. And after four straight years of double-digit growth in the United States, subscription music-streaming services, which have driven the recovery of the recorded-music industry and generated $3.7 billion, or half of all revenue flowing back to labels in 2019 alone, according to IFPI, are starting to run out of potential subscribers. The United…

With 110 million music streaming subscribers, services in the United States are reaching 50% of the addressable market as measured by individuals, and there’s a 1:1 radio of subscribers to households — but the higher percentages and ratios in Norway and Sweden suggest that growth will continue, even if it begins to slow.

COPYRIGHT PROTECTION “While there is no shortage of issues that differentiate Trump and Biden, music is generally not one of them,” says Daryl Friedman, chief advocacy officer for the Recording Academy. “Both candidates have a record of pro-music politics and accomplishments.” The most important policy issue in the music business right now is copyright, which both tickets have been strong on. President Donald Trump has a reputation for taking a transactional approach to intellectual property issues in treaties, but Vice President Mike Pence has been what one music lobbyist calls a “go-to back channel” for issues that affect creators and rights holders. Pence has been “incredibly supportive of creators’ rights,” according to RIAA chairman/CEO Mitch Glazier. Former Vice President Joe Biden, who for eight years served as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee,…
