LIL NAS X AND JACK HARLOW ENTER THE BILLBOARD HOT 100 at No. 2 with “Industry Baby,” which, following its July 23 release, opens with 40.6 million U.S. streams, 2.9 million in radio audience and 10,900 sold in the week ending July 29, according to MRC Data. The anthem celebrating music business dominance (“This one is for the champions,” Lil Nas X boasts in the prechorus) also debuts atop the Streaming Songs, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts. On the Hot 100, it’s Lil Nas X’s fourth top 10 — following “Montero (Call Me by Your Name),” which became his second No. 1 in April (and holds at No. 8) — and Harlow’s second, matching the high of his 2020 breakthrough hit, “Whats Poppin” (featuring DaBaby, Tory Lanez and…

The Kid Wins Over a year after The Kid LAROI’s F*ck Love was released, it surges from No. 26 to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for its first week atop the list, following multiple reissues that added tracks to the project. The set, now in its 53rd chart week, earned 85,000 equivalent album units in the United States during the week ending July 29 (up 409%), according to MRC Data. Streaming activity powers most of that figure. F*ck Love arrived July 24, 2020, with 15 tracks. It was reissued Nov. 6 with seven additional tracks and jumped 81-3 on the Nov. 21 chart — its peak until now. It was then reissued a third and fourth time, on July 23 and July 27, adding seven and six tracks, respectively, including his…

blackground to bring aaliyah’s music online

ON AUG. 25, 2020, THE 19TH anniversary of Aaliyah’s death, the singer’s official Twitter account had a message for “our loyal fans. We are excited to announce,” the message from the estate read, “that communication has commenced between the estate and various record labels about the status of Aaliyah’s music catalogue, as well as its availability on streaming platforms in the near future.” Barry Hankerson, Aaliyah’s uncle and the founder of Blackground Records, saw that as a green light. The reclusive 73-year-old mogul founded the label in 1993, specifically to support his niece Aaliyah’s then-nascent music career. But years after Aaliyah’s sudden death in an August 2001 plane crash at the age of 22, all of her music except her first album, which she made with R. Kelly, is now out…

the shows must go on. but how?

HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE vaccinated?” Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst asked the crowd at Chicago’s Grant Park during the band’s set at Lollapalooza on July 31. “Very cool,” he replied when most of the audience cheered. “Very considerate!” It was an encouraging sign amid the unexpectedly complicated return of large-scale music festivals, just a week after Rolling Loud Miami and the Newport (R.I.) Folk Festival unofficially opened a late-summer season that promoters hoped would take place as life returned to normal in the wake of the pandemic’s peak. Promoters Live Nation and Chicago-based C3 Presents have not released ticket sales data for the four-day event, which started July 29 and drew over 100,000 attendees per day to see headliners Foo Fighters, Post Malone, Tyler, The Creator and Miley Cyrus, but Billboard…
