Drake Named Global Recording Artist of 2018!

IFPI, the organisation that represents the recorded music industry worldwide, has named Drake as the world’s best-selling recording artist of 2018, following the global success of his fifth album Scorpion.

Released in June 2018, Drake’s 25-track double album broke multiple global records in its first week of release. Scorpion was the first album to reach one billion streams across all platforms worldwide.

The IFPI Global Recording Artist of the Year Award and top 10 chart was the first, and remains the only, ranking to accurately capture the engagement with artists across streaming channels, alongside digital and physical album and singles sales on a global basis.

Kanye West’s Contract: “You can never retire!”

Kanye West’s publishing contract with the major label EMI states that he can never retire, according to documents made public in an ongoing lawsuit.

West’s contract stipulates that he must “remain actively involved in writing, recording and producing Compositions and Major Label Albums, as Your principle occupation.”

It continues: “At no time during the Term will you seek to retire as a songwriter, recording artist or producer or take any extended hiatus during which you are not actively pursuing your musical career in the same basic manner as you have pursued such career to date.”

West is currently suing EMI over his contract.

Music Is The Soundtrack Of Your Brand
Regardless of whether that sound is Downtown Groove, Uptown Funky or Midtown Metal everyone’s sound brand has to suit the business. It has to appeal and attract customers.
Get the sound track wrong and you will send guests out the door quicker than ever! But there is one key element that goes a step further. Video is not only part of your fit-out but it’s the visuals that draw and increase guest stay time.

A large factor in the modern bar today is working with the power of good music video and marketing. The biggest issue with video screens is sports. We know some live sport holds the crowd and we also know some sports replays can make a select number of guests happy. But it’s the large amount of non-relevant shows like second hand Sports, News, Talkback and After-match chat that just drives women screaming out the door!

So, make sure your dedicated music-video screens run through your prime time when stay time duration can make serious increases in turnover. After 30 years in this business, we know food and beverage sales increases with good visuals and even better increases happen when music video and marketing are used together.

So how does the sound and vision in your brand stack up?

Cocktails in a teapot anyone?

The Mad Hatters Trivia Show
This combination goes mad at the “Mad Hatters Teapot Crazy Hat and Quiz Party”!


Over the years I’ve created, designed and built thousands of bar & event promotions. In fact, I started a book years ago and I got to over 5000 crazy promotional programs I had done.
