At long last, we have a concert to report. Woo! Clay Aiken is in the house. Even if that house is only 60% full.
Because one concert report may not be enough to chew over, here are a few articles from Billboard to ponder.
Jimmy Iovine wants better quality music. No, he’s not talking about the quality of the song, but the quality of the digital download. Go Jimmy! Dispensing good advice to singers (shut up Randy) while improving the quality of my iPod. Although, it will likely make songs more expensive because goodness knows that the extra 0.001s it takes to transmit is worth 50 cents. Billboard.
As we probably all heard by now, Gaga got the 1000th number one on the Hot 100 chart. But which labels got most of those songs. 1000 No 1’s Billboard
