GOOD READ

For Variety, Jem Aswad goes inside the dirty business of hit songwriting:

"Artists, managers, producers and even executives have amped up their demands for credit and/or a percentage of the songwriters’ publishing in exchange for the artist cutting the song, or even simply for bringing the song to the artist."

Thanks for listening!

—Dave & Team Hype Machine
