HITS HIGH 5: ONE FOR YOU, 19 FOR ME

Whether you’re heading to Coachella, getting in line at a record store to snatch up a limited pressing or just hanging by the pool streaming the daylights out of BTS, bask in the glow of the week’s finest stories in the HITS High 5.

Columbia's Lil Nas X is a record-shattering monster with a mind-boggling 83 million U.S. streams this week with "Old Town Road."

Word has it that Capitol will soon be working a new version of Daddy Yankee’s “Con Calma” featuring Snow, with English verses sung by Katy Perry.

In reflecting on Billie Eilish’s popularity, I.B. Bad concludes that her Eilish’s record marks the first true flowering of the Gen-Z sensibility. On that note, it's more clear now making a streaming operation work for a label required a lot of time in the workshop.

BTS  BigHit/Columbia Map of the Soul: Persona hit #1 at iTunes upon release and occupied seven of the top eight slots on the singles side. 

Deanna Brown will be heading the Billboard-Hollywood Reporter Media Group. Is she there to clean house?

And if you’re the type who hates Mondays, remember this one is tax day as well.
