Home Music Pop Music: Prince A Fatality with “HitNRun,” Gaga Ignores “Hunting Ground” Song,...

Not sure what’s going on, why or wherefore…

Prince has struck out with his strangely released “HitNRun.” It’s number 13 on the iTunes R&B albums chart. It’s nowhere on the top 100. Prince put the album on Jay Z’s Tidal HiFi streaming service, which few have or know about. Then he put it on iTunes for downloading, but  no one’s really working it. The album will be remembered as an actual hit and run. Couldn’t he have just released it normally through Warner Music?

Lady Gaga has managed to ignore “Till It Happens to You” so that it’s doing nothing in the U.S. On the UK charts, the song from the documentary “The Hunting Ground ” is number 75. Great song. Why doesn’t Gaga go out and promote it, talk about it, the whole deal? This is a real potential Oscar nominee for Best Song. Go download it from iTunes. Proceeds go to charity.

One Direction is number 1 with their single “Infinity.” They knocked off Justin Bieber, who’s fallen to number 4 on iTunes. Elsewhere he’s around 8 or 9. One Direction’s new album is number 2 on iTunes as a pre-order for November 13th.

Sam Smith’s James Bond theme from “Spectre” imminent tonight…
