ava max’s ‘sweet’ success

POP SINGER-SONGWRITER AVA MAX ACHIEVES HER first Billboard Hot 100 top 10 as “Sweet but Psycho” rises from No. 12 to No. 10, led by its No. 4 status on the Radio Songs chart (82.5 million audience impressions, up 2%, according to Nielsen Music). The track, which previously ruled multiple European charts, including the Official U.K. Singles survey for four weeks in January, completes the steadiest climb — 23 weeks — to the Hot 100’s top 10 by a female soloist’s first entry (unaccompanied by another artist) since Anna Kendrick’s “Cups (Pitch Perfect’s When I’m Gone)” took 28 weeks in 2013. Atop the Hot 100, Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” (featuring Billy Ray Cyrus) rules for an eighth week, logging the second-biggest streaming week to date — 130.7 million U.S. streams,…

hitting the sheets

TWENTY YEARS AGO, when she would ask publishers to license sheet music so her company, Musicnotes, could sell it online, Kathy Marsh would usually receive a two-word response: Forget it. “‘People will never buy digital sheet music’ — that’s from a big publisher,” remembers Marsh, Musicnotes’ co-founder and CEO. Publishers overcame their early resistance, however, and today — thanks to online stores like Musicnotes, digital subscription services and music-notation formats for tablets and phones — sheet-music sales are booming. They generated $240 million in global revenue in 2018, according to Musicnotes — a tiny fraction of the overall publishing business. But the sheet-music sector is growing quickly: The National Music Publishers’ Association (NMPA) has said that sales were up 7% in 2017 compared with the previous year. “I don’t believe we…

spanish collection society sgae booted from cisac

Since 2013, the Spanish public performance collecting society SGAE has been plagued by accusations of misconduct. On May 30, the organization was temporarily expelled from CISAC, the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers, at its meeting in Tokyo. The decision, the result of a 3,580 to 346 vote by members, is “a very regrettable step,” says CISAC director general Gadi Oron. “But the board of directors felt there was no choice.” The most egregious allegations concern SGAE’s involvement in a long-running royalty scam known as La Rueda (“The Wheel”), in which Spanish broadcasting companies that are members of SGAE play songs they own the rights to as background music on late-night Spanish TV to inflate their royalty payments. (In Spain, some music publishers are owned by TV stations, which…

‘we’re ready for battle’

On May 28, Warner Bros. Records officially became Warner Records, a global rebranding — complete with a new logo — intended to usher in a new era for the label that has been home to Prince, Fleetwood Mac, the Grateful Dead and others. In their first joint interview since they took the helm together in 2018, U.S. co-chairman/CEO Aaron Bay-Schuck, who started last October, and U.S. co-chairman/COO Tom Corson, who began in January 2018, discuss staffing up, signing urban acts and how they’re starting to turn the storied company around. “We stress-tested this company over the last 17 months, and it proved itself,” says Corson. “We’re ready for battle.” How would you assess the changes you have made so far? CORSON There was a lot of work to do when I got…

shane tarleton

RADIO IS STILL KING WHEN IT comes to country music. But when a song isn’t connecting, the marketing plan doesn’t die — not on Shane Tarleton’s watch. When Warner Music Nashville (WMN) released Devin Dawson’s last single, “Dark Horse,” to radio in November 2018, the title track of his debut album never reached the country charts. So Tarleton and his team looked at other avenues to keep the singer engaged with fans, such as partnering with online musical services and social media platforms. “My approach is, ‘We are marketing this artist to the globe no matter what’s happening at radio,’” explains Tarleton, 44. “We’re going to go after brand alliances, and we’re going to make sure that every partner is aware of what our agenda is. This last tour, we were…
