post malone says hello; lil nas x nears history

POST MALONE’S “Goodbyes” (featuring Young Thug) enters the Billboard Hot 100 dated July 20 at No. 3 — below Lil Nas X’s No. 1 smash that moves closer to chart history. Post Malone earns his seventh top 10 (and fifth to debut in the region) and Young Thug adds his second, following his featured turn on Camila Cabello’s “Havana,” which topped the chart on Jan. 27, 2018. “Goodbyes” begins at No. 2 on both Streaming Songs (40.8 million U.S. streams, according to Nielsen Music) and Digital Song Sales (41,000 downloads sold), and at No. 49 on the Radio Songs chart (22.9 million in airplay audience). Meanwhile, Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” (featuring Billy Ray Cyrus) rules the Hot 100 for a 15th frame, moving to within a week of the record…

what happens to hot tickets

IN FEBRUARY 2017, DAYS before Metallica announced its WorldWired North American stadium tour, Live Nation president of U.S. concerts Bob Roux spoke by phone with a little-known wealth adviser turned event promoter who had been tasked by an associate of the band to move 88,000 tickets straight onto resale sites like StubHub before fans had a chance to buy them at face value. “Ticketmaster will not do it,” Roux can be heard saying on the call, explaining that the plan had to be concealed and suggesting that “either a Live Nation employee or a venue box office basically take these and sell them into a singular account,” the way tickets are typically allocated to fan clubs or sponsors. Once the tickets were placed there, they would be listed and sold on…

sony restructures music divisions

Sony Corp. is putting both Sony Music Entertainment and Sony/ATV Music Publishing under the new umbrella of Sony Music Group, which Sony Music CEO Rob Stringer will helm as chairman. The move is effective Aug. 1, according to an internal Sony memo obtained by Billboard, and represents a significant structural change for the Tokyo-based conglomerate. For years, Sony/ATV has been separate from SME, with their respective leaders until now reporting to corporate management separately. Under this new structure, Sony/ATV chairman/CEO Jon Platt will report to Stringer. Platt will retain the authority and responsibility he currently has with respect to the operation of the music-publishing business, according to the memo from Sony Corp. president/CEO Kenichiro Yoshida. Until November 2018, Sony/ATV had been owned as a joint venture with other equity stake holders, but…

portnow looks back

THE GLITTERY GRAY Baldwin grand piano that Carole King once played during a visit to his office will stay. But the $150 bass from his high school band that’s propped up in the corner will go, as will the autographed photo of President Donald Trump signing the Music Modernization Act into law. As Recording Academy president/CEO Neil Portnow prepares to vacate his spacious, brightly lit Santa Monica, Calif., corner suite on July 31 after 17 years at the helm of the organization that runs the Grammy Awards, he’s sorting through layers of material and memorabilia he has collected over time. Otherwise, Portnow, 71, is taking care of academy business before he “turns the keys over” to his successor, Deborah Dugan, who officially replaces him on Aug. 1. Portnow achieved a lot: negotiating…

saban’s $500m label bet

In late 2018, the same topic of conversation would come up every time entertainment mogul Haim Saban chatted with two of his friends, Lucian Grainge and Lyor Cohen. “They thought we were on the cusp of the golden age of the music world,” recalls Saban. “The first thing that came to my head was, ‘If this is the golden age, why am I ignoring it?’ ” Saban decided to pay attention, to the tune of half a billion dollars: He plans to invest $500 million in Saban Music Group (SMG), a new Los Angeles-based label and music company with a global outlook and a roster to match. It will be led by CEO Gustavo Lopez, whose Latin entertainment company, Talento Uno Music, was acquired by Saban in May. The money doesn’t come…
