Drake Dominates With Record Nine Of Top 10

World News: Global Charts Highlights, Year One

LEAN LATIN, GO GL OBAL

STAR-STUDDED LATIN MUSIC WEEK AND A WARDS RETURN LIVE

Billboard

What’s A Song Worth? • Songwriters are benefiting from a boom in publishing assets, but they’re still regulated into a paltry share of streaming revenue. Now some are organizing for better deals

MARKET WATCH

Crossing Country’s Borders • STREAMING HAS CHANGED THE GAME IN NASHVILLE, LEADING LABELS TO FIND POP PARTNERS AS GENRE BOUNDARIES DISAPPEAR

GOING UP! • Since Tencent agreed in late 2019 to buy 20% of Universal Music Group at a $33 billion valuation, estimates of the company’s worth keep rising. The latest? JP Morgan’s $62 billion

Will India Finally Pay To Play? • Ad-based listening is booming, outpacing the country’s lagging subscriptions. Now leading streaming service Gaana wants to convert listeners into customers

FROM THE DESK OF ALEX GALLARDO • President of U.S. Latin, Sony Music Latin

TODO DE RAUW • As Latin’s latest rising star, Rauw Alejandro approaches music with a winner’s mentality — and it’s paying off

(NEW) RHYTHM OF THE NIGHT

BALANCING ACT • Natti Natasha has been making history for over a decade, and is still paving a path in reggaetón

“LOCO”

EL GODFATHER • DADDY YANKEE took reggaetón from the streets of San Juan to a global stage — and taught its stars a new way to do business. As he prepares his 10th album, he’s showing why he’s still The Big Boss

G FORCE • After years of grinding in Colombia, KAROL G hustled her way to the top of the male-dominated world of reggaetón. Now, with dreams of music moguldom, she’s ready to prove she’s more than just the genre’s leading lady

REGIONAL MEXICAN GOES GLOBAL • A new generation of artists — with new sounds like trap corridos — is selling out arenas, drawing the attention of collaborators like Bad Bunny and Snoop Dogg, and connecting with listeners around the world

BACK AND EN VIVO • After a year gone virtual, Billboard Latin Music Week returns live, celebrating a revenue explosion fueled by the rise in streaming and return to touring. Five days of star-packed panels, concerts and showcases include these highlights — plus the Billboard Latin Music Awards, airing live on Telemundo on Sept. 23

THE HOST WITH THE MOST • Nicky Jam kicks off season two of his new talk show at Latin Music Week with an onstage one-on-one with Jhay Cortez. Gleaning exclusive insights is his specialty

Eco-Conscious, Safety-Centric, Tech-Savvy: 35 New Venue Builds • AS LIVE-MUSIC GROSSES VANISHED AMID THE PANDEMIC, VENUES INVESTED IN WAYS TO ENTICE FANS BACK TO THE LIVE MARKET — FROM HOSPITAL-QUALITY AIR FILTRATION SYSTEMS TO USING RECYCLED MATERIALS FROM LANDFILLS

The Global Set • FIVE INTERNATIONAL VENUES TO WATCH, INCLUDING FACILITIES IN DUBAI, THE U.K. AND ITALY

Jay Wheeler • Thanks to an early co-sign from Myke Towers, “La Curiosidad” helped the rising reggaetonero slowly fill the Hot Latin Songs chart
