HITS Daily Double

"I can barely contain my joy," declares Warner Music Group CEO of Recorded Music Max Lousada to Atlantic U.K. boss Ben Cook during a party celebrating Warner U.K.'s H1 marketshare spike. Later, he added, "Hurrah."

"I'm enjoying H1 of my drinks," chortled Atlantic U.K. SVP Promotion Damian Christian. "Quite so, old man," guffawed Atlantic U.K. GM Mark Mitchell. "I don't get it," said WMG CEO International and Global Commercial Services Stu Bergen. Meanwhile, UROK's Sam Eldridge and Nostromo Management's Paul Craig increased their punchbowl marketshare.

Visiting Yank and Glassnote topper Daniel Glass tenders his congratulations to Lousada. Later, the two wondered if anyone caught their Game of Thrones cameos.

Atlantic's Cook toasts with Clean Bandit's Grace Chatto and Atlantic A&R exec Briony Turner, after the latter breathlessly detailed her plan to sign a bunch of made-up Swedish artists.

Lousada poses with stars Charli XCX and Dua Lipa, both of whom are vying to be the next Mother of Dragons.

Artist Anne-Marie, EVP international Marketing Jeremy Marsh and manager Jazz Sherman all agree that there are not enough songs about shandy.
