HITS Daily Double


YOUR WEEKLY MARKETSHARE SCOREBOARD: CMG didn’t just win the frontline competition this week, Team Barnett annihilated the rest of the field with a rare 20+. What makes the feat that much more impressive is that this surge is powered by a pair of breakthrough rookie acts in Sam Smith and 5SOS, both inked by Capitol U.K. President Nick Raphael. Barnett would be justified in thinking of Nick as the Angel Raphael, because this is turning out be a magical stretch for the iconic label on both sides of the pond. (7/30a)
