with ‘middle child,’ j. cole earns first top five hot 100 hit

J. COLE NOTCHES A NEW career-best rank on the Billboard Hot 100 as “Middle Child” soars from its No. 26 debut to No. 4. Following its first full week of availability after its Jan. 23 release, the track blasts 17-2 on the Streaming Songs chart (54.4 million U.S. streams, according to Nielsen Music) and 12-5 on Digital Song Sales (24,000 sold). The single, which shouts out fellow rappers including 21 Savage, Jay-Z and Kodak Black, also drew 8.4 million in radio reach in the tracking week. The song marks Cole’s first top five Hot 100 hit and fifth top 10 appearance following “Deja Vu” — which debuted and peaked at No. 7 in December 2016 — and “ATM,” “Kevin’s Heart” and “KOD,” which bowed and peaked at Nos. 6, 8 and 10,…

pledgemusic’s failed promise

FOR THE PAST NINE months, electro-industrial band ohGr has been fielding questions from fans asking why they haven’t received the CDs, records, books and T-shirts that they bought as part of the group’s PledgeMusic crowdfunding campaign to support its fifth full-length album, TrickS. Producer Mark Walk has done his best to explain the delays, but he has been kept waiting himself — ohGr has yet to see nearly $100,000 of the $140,000 the group raised with PledgeMusic. Walk has struggled through frequent emails and calls with PledgeMusic staff, asking to get the money that would allow him to make the promised products. The band finally released its album digitally last summer and headed out on a nationwide tour without new merchandise. Since then, there have been few developments, other than…

sony/atv reigns, majors up

Sony/ATV Music Publishing retains its lead in the publisher rankings for the fifth consecutive quarter, following an earlier five-year run as the top publisher that ended in third-quarter 2017. In fourth-quarter 2018, the company posted a 21.2 percent market share (down from 26.3 percent) with a stake in 56 of the top 100 radio songs, including No. 2, Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You.” Universal Music Publishing Group picked up nearly three market-share points to finish the quarter at 18.93 percent, good for No. 2. The company had a share in 52 of the top songs, including No. 1, Marshmello and Bastille’s “Happier.” Kobalt, with a share in 38 of the top 100 radio songs, including “Happier,” fell from second to third place as its market share declined slightly, to 17.35 percent.

21 savage faces immigration limbo

ON SUPER BOWL SUNDAY, many music fans and executives were more focused on 21 Savage than anyone performing in the halftime show. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detained the rapper on Feb. 3 in Atlanta, just miles from the football field. ICE officials have said he was born in the United Kingdom and overstayed his visa, and now the 26-year-old, born Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, is being held without bond as he awaits deportation proceedings, which could result in him being barred from the United States for 10 years — or life. The event shocked the music world. Savage’s ascent from local sensation to double-Grammy nominee with a record of charitable actions is one of hip-hop’s biggest success stories, and his arrest has been met with confusion and anger at a…

how fyre burned through cash

Nearly two years after Fyre Festival went up in flames, attorney Gregory Messer is still trying to piece together how Billy McFarland spent the $26 million he raised to fund the disastrous event. A New York judge appointed Messer to serve as a trustee in the bankruptcy and has issued subpoenas to dozens of talent agencies, supermodels and influencers like Kendall Jenner who were paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for promoting the 2017 festival in the Bahamas. So far, Messer has accounted for $11.4 million in wire transfers, saying McFarland kept no financial records and did not cooperate before starting his six-year prison sentence in 2018. Here are some of the big-ticket items from Messer’s inquiry — from models and cruise ships to booze and more. SAVAGE: ERIKA GOLDRING/WIREIMAGE. BAHAMAS:…
