Jennifer Justice, entertainment exec and founder, The Justice Department
"I loved what you said about figuring out what it is about you. That's different regardless of how you grew up or your circumstances. What was that for you? And when did you start to figure that out? You know it takes a while. You're like there's no in there telling you you're great and you deserve to be here and I would see people reacting me in a different way and it took a long time it took. It took some therapy at took an executive coach really to be like you have these patterns in your life and I started seeing that when I talked and advocated for people all. It was different than other people doing it. I was really doing it from a place of I knew it was the right thing to do. And even though there were financial benefits it wasn't just like being an activist. It was really advocating for people who deserved what I was asking for an almost getting a lot of that. Push back on it. I was like okay. I'm really onto something. Because if they're just GONNA capitulate than obviously wasn't asking for an off and so it kind of drove me and I knew that that thing was that I was really good at advocating and really good at marrying art and commerce. When did you start getting into the world of US editions and entertainers? So I mean even when I was in Seattle I was hanging out in the grunge scene. You know we didn't know the whole world was paying attention even though we all these bands have been signed and not albums out. It's small in comparison to New York and so I just identify with most of them from my background. You know and they weren't college educated. Are I WANNA jump into Jay z? just lay some groundwork hair. Where was Jesse his career? How old was he roughly us about what he just recorded? The hard knock life hadn't come out yet and so she was probably what twenty eight twenty nine and he'd really reasonable doubt volume on and he was about to release hockey. It's right before he becomes a superstar. Yeah what was your first meeting with him. Like I had been a fan of reasonable doubt which when I interviewed at Carol Grade on and they're like how do you even know who he is? You know because it's an amazing at that point as many copies as it has now and then we had to go to a meeting. Def Jam which was a tiny company at the time and I'm met him for the first time walking in so only seen a picture of him and I didn't realize how tall he was and hoskin skinny was. Are you like Mr Carter? It's nice to meet you or like Jay Z. No he liked leans over in the introduces himself. And I always like. Oh I'm your day. What does he yeah? I'm Jay now it's like I'm your new attorneys. Oh you're jj you know. And that's what we're not does he call you. J. J. Yeah J. J. my good friend Jay. He's famous for being an incredible businessman. He is known to be Astute at identifying business opportunities optimizing for them and obviously doing really well and making money. How did you get him to trust you? He knew that I was fighting for him. You know that really cared about what his assets were how he should be treated and I just saw really early on. I mean hip hop wasn't even on you. Know live telecast of the grammys. At the time they didn't even have a billboard chart separate for it and he came out breaking all these records you know he just saw how much you know. I fought for him and cared about making sure. He got what he deserved. I'm just fascinated. What was your lifelike at this point? We're you going out with these guys every day all the time all the time. How does that work? When you're the lawyer going out with them at that would make me like very very anxious. Yeah so I mean look. I listened things. You don't get involved in the entertainment attorney right. So there's no company in the ministry that is open before ten. Am there's no reception. Nobody's answering the phone before ten and then a lot of shows are at night so it just is you know what I mean. And it's just the way that the business works the you know. There are a lot of us running around together all the time they were in it and it was a lot of fun. How old are you roughly at this time? Mid Twenties like a young kid. Yeah but you're US superstar lawyer superstar lawyer. How did you ensure that you were respected as a professional while also socializing with your clients and I'm GonNA assume maybe not the most professional settings board room at night? How did you find that balance? Well I didn't to be honest with you. I was just going along because all the guys were to right and I was like well. You know it's fine everybody else's out and then there was a shift actually and I started to realize that one client in particular not any of them that I've mentioned and he's in a little bit of a different genre Saami outlet at night and was like I don't like my lawyer being out late and I was like okay but I was with your male lawyer and you didn't say anything about that that's when I really started to see because again I didn't have any mentorship so I didn't know that women are treated differently in Business. I didn't know there were glass ceilings and then all of a sudden I was like. Oh there's a double standard and what was your reaction to that at first I was like. Oh my God you're right. This is awful and it was like wait a minute. No this is not cool because I'm in the same room with other male attorneys other managers. Other you know accountants. This is the music industry music. Entertainment Law. We're not curing cancer solving world world. Peace here so it was very eye-opening to me when I think about some of the people that you've worked with even early on whether it's Mark Ronson obviously Jay Z. Back in the day and then you know to what he is today and beyond say specifically talking about those people it's a mix of creatives who have strong business intuition. How do you think through when there is a creative idea that super compelling but the business around it just doesn't necessarily make sense thus the thing it's like the creative and the business half to meet and if they don't then you know whoever it is my clients they have to make the decision? Do they want to fund it? Is this a nonprofit that you partner with a museum you have to do the math and give them all the options? What could really be the outcome? Is it you paying for it? Is it finding philanthropists to pay for it or returning in this into a real business? And that's my job is helping them Mary. Art and

"I guess so that seem infirm seems to be like those the the beginning of the end for bradley and his wife now. They're still going strong. They got a kid. No they just broke out the i'm behind the they just broke up as recording boarding okay well as long as amy poehler anwar netter still together. That's where my love lies and then the last thing i'll say about this song <hes> i think this really speaks to what we're all kind of dancing around which is that it feels so calculated without actually yeah very plant there are so many people involved the song that contribute to making it a hit. It's gaga obviously but then it's also andrew wyatt. Who's the singer. Mike snow remember that band. Oh yeah absolutely animal chance yep and then anthony romando who's in the band dirty pretty things and mark ronson. Obviously we all know him rawson brother no. That's what i was going to meet. The ronson rather is that right. I think so but then also thought it was her dad or something thing. She's young nationally. Not i played pool with her once at barney's beanery you shell <hes> then dan was she chill she was chill and i think i did with but no mark ronson obviously has done any wine house adele ellie allen miley cyrus and of course so famously bruno mars john's o- his music it was never mind today's date they were engaged the deep cut and she does have music the least a <hes> a music video that was meant to feel like a throwback nineties almost like t._l._c. I'll see era or something like kind of like aren be single and it's like her driving convertible and it's one of those things that got like re tweeted a bunch and and i watched it and god bless rashida of course oh it seemed to be neither fish nor fowl like it wasn't a comedy thing but surely we weren't saying this was a real song. We like well. If it was a one off it it did feel like is maybe maybe just kinda the thing where she just made a video to be like <hes> i'm having fun with. It wasn't like celebrity friends on well. She the song was produced by. I think in her cousin who's a man named sonny levin who did perform at my wedding okay dropped wedding because i heard heard a song of his in the gap one day and came home to my now wife. It was like the gap i and it was. It's like kinda. The only song he ever produced that somehow ended up on like the gaps gap circuit such a hard marquette and then she tracked him down on but he's rashida jones cousin music producer. It's so funny okay so i was called love rhino if anybody wants to. I'm going to hop on your family family connections and say that another person involved on the song is willie nelson's son. Jimmy nelson lukas nelson with a k. which feels feels like jimmy energy. I didn't know that was his son. He plays all the guitar in the movie right here does he was brought on as an authenticity consultant for bradley cooper. Let's another smart calculated. Aspect of this. I think is that they were going for like a country sound. Which is the most popular music still really in this country like <hes>. I feel like most people we know probably don't listen to a lot of it but that those are the huge selling album right now might adjust overtaken taken it allows it. Has that makes sense. I believe that but obviously bread. The cooper shouldn't be doing a hip hop song. No so say attorney can't was available to them. I think this was smart. I would say maybe rather cobra doesn't need to sing but that's just my opinion kind of he kind of in a lot of his songs in the movie sounds like he's doing like pearl jam or some. This one is not that mrs moore going for like sam hunts audience which seems purpose slots not who they were going for the actually i have the reference they wanted <hes> and that guy lukas nelson <unk>..

"<music> uh I would always say Gaga would tell me these stories when we'd be in the beginning like it's so nice that you listen because you don't know like most of these fucking out here. These is producing households and I I believe there but I would just more like befuddled like rushmore befuddled. I guess more like why you're in Rome with someone who's incredibly talented and really good. Why don't you just shut up this like where it is ego coming? You're like in the get in the way live making good art because you have to make this girl know that you're the boss. Mark Ronson is an Oscar and grammy winning producer. WHO's behind some monster monster hits from any wine houses rehab to uptown funk with Bruno Mars too shallow by Lady Gaga to nothing breaks like a heart with Miley Cyrus?

It's it's a pretty that is a fairly broad question but I would like to honor it so basically thickly when I can only speak how I would maybe make a song I could probably pick a couple songs because it can be such evade experience like my first song only ever had that kind of I guess maybe put me on the map. A little bit was to Song Ui with goes facing nate Dogg from my first record so for that I was watching the movie boogie nights rights and there's a scene when Mark Waugh bugs the bus way in the beginning. I heard this string sample in the background and I was like Oh that's interesting and this was before she was an by twenty years and <hes> I think I waited. I went and bought the soundtrack.

"mark ronson" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist
"Sat down and was like I asked her, what type of wreckage you under make. And then we went to the song, she had, we wrote a few songs together you bring in some other songwriters and then record in, I guess your job is just to take what's great about that artist and magnify it a thousand times as much as you can. So, you know, when I've worked with ghost face killer that sometimes just means like I made a track I made it beat, and I send it to him, and he wraps on it, but it's such a it is a hard thing to sky because there's it's it's it is. And then there are some producers that probably do nothing. I have. No, but like it, you it's just something where you take what's in your toolkit. I grew up played in bands. So I have a little like no. If playing instruments in arranging, and, you know, and, and just doing whatever's right for the for the wreckage work. Yeah, I wish I could put it back though. You did that. That's a good explanation for what it is. And you bring to bear all the influences through your life. You can see it in the people. You've worked with. Yeah. Variety of them when you were here growing up in New York, we were talking a little bit about the kind of music. We both listen to what were your big influences as a kid growing up in New York. So probably like I moved to New York in eighty three. So, like, I guess, as a kid, you just sort of listen to the radio. Whatever it is. I got into like in my early teens like Led Zeppelin and Hendricks. And, you know, the whole rite of passage what you do is like a kid playing guitar, and then a lot of probably hair metal and guns and roses, it was like that era and then in the late. Eighties early nineties I got really into hip hop. And you know, it'd be I've been introduced to it through the beastie boys money MC, the more commercial stuff, but then try called quest and biggie. And Mouton gangstar groups like that. And at that point, I went from wanting to play guitar to wanting to DJ and play hip hop from this music, and listening to, you know, New York radio and, you know, New York with such a soundcheck today. Cars driving by playing hot ninety seven. It was like it was it was very much all around. What did you hear in that music because I heard it to about the same age. Yeah. When that was first starting to expand outside the walls of New York City and make out into the country. What did you love about hip hop? I think that I really love that. I was always drums, were actually my first instrument, and I was always drawn anything with a great groove or beaten. And when even in my like. Guns and roses, arrow whatever I love to meters average white band. Ohio players like some of this, like funk music, and hip hop in that arrow was really drawing heavily from that sampling James Brown. Sampling all these things. So I think instantly the first thing that I really loved about. It was was the music in the in the way that the groove move, and then and then I would kind of like, the, you know, get into lyrics or whatever it was. But at first, it was definitely like about about the, the beat the rhythm, you'll said some of these influences in your own apartment, apparently, giving your stepfather was in foreigner, your mother being who she was all the stories true that Mick Jagger and Robin Williams and Bruce Springsteen would be your apartment, I, well, some of them like, definitely, there's kind of like over the course of like, maybe like fifteen years growing up like but yeah, my stepdad was a musician. So did sometimes I'd wake up in the middle? Of the night, and it'd be crazy parties two hundred people in my house. Now that living in New York apartment. I don't even know how they got away with it. If I like turn my radio up above three. I get bang. Let's hear it was the eighty. Yeah. But no, it was really cool. I think that was more like. I guess the thing that was really amazing about going out with, you know, make my stepdad is he had this music room with the studio. So we had this early samplers that I could like experiment, start to me weeds on and Tate track recording machines and things like that. So I saw starting to, like make my own demos and figure out how to do that. So. Yeah, it was really. Is definitely cooled around with that. So you graduate high school right turntable right for graduation. Yes. What did you see yourself doing what was the next move for you? Was it DJ first and then into producing or do you just wanna go DJ for, for that time, I was definitely when I first got my turntables for high school? Graduation, kind of instantly was just like in my room. Six hours, a day practicing listening to stretch Armstrong on the radio trying to like, recreate what I heard doing and not very well, like obviously, like early on. But I would just take my turntables and speakers to like for seventy dollars in snowstorm to some little bar anywhere. House parties. Like you're just so into this thing you do it for new doing it for the love. And then I went to facet university for year and was on the radio station there, I think around that time I did get into producing. And DJ in New York cubs. At first couple years, if I met anybody who said they wrap that'd be like get going to my house more you like work on some music. So you're like you're just figuring it out in real time, you know, and I just had this studio in the bedroom, anyone who wanted to Claverie as I was down. And you started good reputation being really good at what you were doing. Yeah. What was the breakthrough? Did you feel like was it meeting? Amy wine house, or was it some time before there where you thought, okay, I'm pretty good at this. I can make a career out of it. Well, I think what happened was the DJ -ing really kind of took off and started to and overtake the producing. And I think that because it was like how I supported myself I sort of. I remember being like a little bit later, but DJ for, for calling for party, he had after the Grammy's on his second album, and he was like on the Mike dancing, good time, and he was, like this is more like he's my favorite deejay. If you ever see him on the turntables, you know, it's a party or something that I was obviously, flattered. But in my mind, I had always sort of wanted to make music. And DJ -ing wasn't really this ever the end goal. So I was like, damn like, I'm just like, I don't know. Like I guess as they saying, thinking, like I want everyone to know I make music. You can't just tell everyone you wanna know you have to make something good or make something people are going to hear whatever it is. So they want to just be the wedding DJ who know else. No. So, so, yeah, I guess I guess I I've been producing records but really hadn't had any commercial success. And then when I met Amy that really was the breakthrough. And I think that it was so great because I met someone who liked all the same using that I liked was just. Obviously incredibly talented like ridiculously, and then she just was willing to do like experiment, just like mess around with the sounds, and I just like all the some of my influences of those years of Dijon like loving this old soul and kind of just like being a little bit. Green is what probably went into, like making that clever ration- or enabling it to be what it was. She was special wasn't she? I mean she was you've worked with a lot of people, but there's something different about her. I imagine. Yeah. I think that. Yes, she was just like I think the fact like the first song we did together was back to black. And I played her the I met her the day before she told me, she loved all the sixties go group music, and I was like, okay, well, I don't really have anything like that. But if you stay like one more day, because she was going to say, stay warm one day, and like I work on something tonight and come back and see if you like it so up all night, like gonna run around my little piano drums, like just trying anything until something felt interesting. And it came up with the cords of active lack and put a little like kick in Tamarine on it, because it was like the easiest way, I can make it sound like the old things that she liked and she came in the next day, and she really loves it, and then went in the back room and wrote the entire song and the lyrics in an hour. When I just like you know, we all have that, like, kind of cliche of like in. Inspiration like like lightning bolt strikes of like scribbling furiously for our like Mozart's symphony whatever. But she, she had she sort of had that, like there was no, she was able to access something when she was inspired that just had no filter. And because in her entire life, she was so brutally honest and never second guessed anything. I think when this they're just came out in office issues, so gifted language and melody.
"mark ronson" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist
"Guest is seven time, Grammy winner, and now Academy Award winner and Golden Globe, winner and a bunch of other award winner, Mark Ronson. He is the famed deejay and producer behind so much of the music you hear on the radio. He got his big breakthrough working with Amy wine house twelve years ago on her seminal album back to black that one bunch of Grammy's. He partnered up with her. He has since worked with Adele. He is a man behind uptown funk. The monster hit that was number one for fourteen weeks with Bruno Mars few years back, and he is the man behind lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper song shallow from the movie stars born, which is where he won his Oscar alongside lady Gaga fascinating guy. Born in London raised in New York City. His stepfather is Mick Jones. Guitarist from foreigner. So he sort of grew up in this universe of musicians. His mother was a well-known woman around New York City big parties in their apartment that a young Mark Ronson would wake up to he talks about that. Mick Jagger walking through the house. Robin Williams was another name, Bruce Springsteen, just a crazy upbringing, and then got into DJ gotta set at turntables when he graduated from high school and started working parties downtown. Got bigger and bigger started doing wedding started meeting musicians offering to work with them. He was heavily influenced by hip-hop in the late nineteen eighties nineties, he's forty three years old will be forty four this year. So kind of came of age that time when hip hop was going mainstream. And we disad down in this famed studio electric lady studios in Greenwich Village in New York City, born from the great Jimi. Hendrix was his studio and so much music from the seventies Ford has been written. Composed in that very place in. It's where lady Gaga did the vocals for shallow so to where he likes to work. Mark ronson. I got together to talk about what exactly a producer does what does it mean to be a producer? I get that question in television lot. What does it producer do? So we sat down with Mark Ronson on the eve of the release of his latest solo album, late night, feelings, which includes already a big hit nothing breaks like a heart his song with Miley, Cyrus a really interesting conversation. If you love music with Mark Ronson from electric lady studios right now on the Sunday sit down podcast. Thanks for doing this Mark per shipment. Thank you. Can we talk first about the room we're in right now and significance of this place for people who don't know? Okay. So this is actually lady studios. Famously you know, built and designed by Jimi Hendrix. I think in nineteen seventy I was a nightclub before. And I guess the only thing that serve leftover is these Mira. On the back because there was some kind of psychedelic artists that Jimmy loves, and he was, like he's going to come and paint it. I don't know so much about, like Tom, and I just know this is like Jimmy's place. Right of a see through the seventies Pink Floyd and a lot of the things that happened here, and then the late eighties early nineties fell into a bit of district disrepair was a bit. Like, like there weren't a lot of people coming in, and then with Di Angelo, and the roots, and that whole movement. Eric do common. It's suddenly became the place again with new owner. So since then, it's been like daft punk Radiohead. But it was really the Angelo FU because there was so much mythology around that record that, that sort of put it back made the whole Frank ocean Tyler that the young generation, they kind of I think turned on to think about the Rolling Stones being here. Bowie or Dylan. Yeah. Does that do you feel that sense of history when you're recording in a place like this? I feel like I like feeling the walls feel like whoa. Born in like there's something about these things, and also the desire to these studios in the eighty studios got more modern. They found new scientific ways to divide sounder separated. But like you're never going to get better than like would an felt like that. It's just like these things that, you know, make this place a bit like about or spaceship, in the seventies is what makes me feel home. And I do think maybe it's like walking and knowing the history that just there's just history. There's just it's just in the room. It sounds so hokey but there's something that's pretty special. There was in the men's room, a minute ago, thinking, my God, if the walls of this bathroom could talk. Yeah. Over fifty years. Yeah. Things they've seen in here, but it's not just history. The places significant to you as well. So much of your work from the beginning to as recently as a few months ago here. Yeah, definitely. It is really one of the last you know, unfortunately, the great studios in. New York, New York City must've close this is one of not only is an amazing studio. Also, one of the last, so if since my first record ever producing could cost all the way through two different albums I worked on two right now. And uptown special late-night feelings was all worked on somehow here. You wanna Grammy and Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and probably a bunch of other awards. I don't even know about for shallow, right lady Gaga spoke holes online, film critics society you go while let you fill out the list that if I just had ceiling. Lady Gaga recorded her vocals, right? Upstairs. Yes. I think people be really interested in a song like that, that they know in love. So well, yeah. About from your standpoint as a producer, how that comes together. Okay. How do you begin to make so well, I was working with lady Gaga on JoAnne. I kind of unknown since just when she was starting out like maybe town eleven years ago and just dance is just starting up. And I even though she's telling his younger than me, there's just like she grew up, two blocks from me on the Upper West side. There was just something super familiar. I was like I couldn't own her growing up just that New York edge that you have, and, you know, t- ten years later, she wanted to work on some music together, and we went in the studio and started working on JoAnne, and in the middle of that she was in talks with Bradley to work on stars born, and she's like, all right. I wanna take a couple weeks out to work on these songs stars born. She was really passionate about it. She wanted to get this role via part of this film and in my head. I'm like, okay. It's a I've been brought in here to, to JoAnne, like I'm always thinking, like the labels, like, hey, come on, like this record out by September this stars born detour seems like it could be a bit of like a waste. But I was like the clock is ticking. Yeah. As a producer, sometimes that's job. But I could see she was very passionate about it was important to her. So we so we worked on some songs, and she had this idea for this chorus and she came in sat at the piano, and she likes to work. Sometimes when you're writing asong everyone sits around, piano, acoustic guitar, just starts throwing ideas around. She likes everybody to put headphones on and she actually has the mic. So her voice is so specialized so much different characteristics to it that, like hearing, the nuance like that close with they have on the air, while you're writing really does steer like how the song goes like you hear little motion of broken part of waste, and you suddenly like oh, and you get it gives you this feeling so. So we all me and my friends, Andrew and Anthony that I brought into session, we sat down and all these headphones. It's almost like strapping into the spaceship. It's kind of like this procedure, and it, it, it does make it kind of like exciting like okay we're about to embark on something. And I remember it was like it was it was late. There was, I think everybody was just going through something. Everybody was having a bit of a trying time with whatever relationship life like it just felt like everybody was wanting to go to his own that night. And, and she just saying that I'm the deep end, and it was sort of like off to the racist. She was kind of like, clamming around on the piano, finding the cords, and then and you had these courts for the verse and started strumming them. And she just maybe the third thing she sung out was that tell me something, and all my has stood up, and I think, just hearing her voice, I post my year while I was probably going through something like having, like a hug. Or something like that line the way she sings, it is so emotive and, and that was kind of, like that's almost written in probably two sessions over two or three days and had no idea that it would, you know, even make it in the movie, let alone have the trajectory that it did. So well, that's the thing about it. It's not something they're ruled under the closing credits. Right. It was sort of a central plot point, he built around your song. Yeah. So when I first saw the film, I saw the first hour of it, Bradley invited me over to his house. He was editing. He goes, I want to show you the first hour, and I think he showed it to a lot of musicians and people that he respect because it was so important for him to get to music thing. Right. Because usually sometimes in the film if I'm watching it, I don't mind, a little make believe that sometimes when it seems really fake or, you know, he just wanted to get he's so passionate about music and doing the right thing. He wanted to get it right. So I went and saw the film and that. That scene in the parking lot as soon as I saw I was like, oh, my God, they've put our words and it's like in the script, and it's like it's become part of this beautiful part of the movie that falling in love. I love the love story in the film. And, you know, I got chills and then she just sings to him in the parking lot that line. And I was, and then I saw I'm actually sort of getting chills thinking about it now. And then that scene when she first comes on stage that's about where I saw the movie too, and I was just, like I was so moved a because I was, I love what I saw the film and just our piece of music it become so entwined in this thing and the film in the narrative, like pushed the song up in this way as well. So it's funny I called engine Anthony. As soon as I got out of the rallies house. I couldn't dial them pick it up. And I'm like driving out of the drive in, I'm like you guys are gonna be rich now. I was just like. I was just like you're not gonna believe when you see this film, like it's they've taken this piece of music. It's like, you know, and that was still a rough cut. And then when I saw the trailer how that was like I mean, I think it's like one of the best cut trailers, I've ever seen is just like so action packed like like like Sam Elliott getting punched in the face on the air and all these things. And I was like they're really like going out on a I don't know, going out on a limb with the summit. They're taking this thing that we got in there investing in this motion will power that it just by itself. Maybe wouldn't have been quite the same just by those opening chords. Yeah. You know what song you're listening to? Yeah. Is it true, Mark that you help to Gaga or suggested to Gaga that sort of now, Connick famous roar that Gaga moment where she gets on stage and let's rip in her way? No, actually that pot. I think she just came up with on the fly and. It was paying those courts for the bridge. And she just did it, I think, though, in the recording when we first had the demo, she sung, it kind of like in a soft voice, and then somehow it by the time she did it live at the Greek turn into the roar. The part that, you know, we all contributed to the lyrics, and the writing of the part that I guess I suggested was the we'd got this most of the song down, and I was like it's really beautiful. But I just missed that weird Gaga thing that you do like the in the bad romance that, you know how route rod like playing with words like just there can be even though this is an alley song like that can be a little bit of that. So that's when we came up with the in the Shash, shall out of though in the Shah showed like whatever it is, actually. But so so that was like, I guess my contribution to the end. That's the feel that rise. And that's when that song really is. Yeah. I think that sometimes I have a great song. It's like there's just like this one extra. Not. She can take like in the uptown funk who was the same thing. We had the whole thing. And then I was like the came up with uptown funk attempts on your part. And it's like there's just this little extra part, you can kinda sing along and stuff. And then unfortunately, that's the part, we got sued for. But anyway, it was good though worth it with the lawsuit. So how'd you described people because I have this problem in television explaining people what a producer does because they know, your producer, you're more than that, obviously. But how do you describe what you do in a room like this?.

So well together. But I don't know. I thought it was like one of the great performances. I know that song, I know it and I was still kind of moved by it. So I thought it was cool. It was an incredible. Bradley Cooper directed the and also like he has everything to lose. That was so brave of him to get up. It's the only time ever going to sing in front of people.

"Everybody from the virtuous. We have a great interview coming up tomorrow on the interview episode it's between Casey Newton and Alex Thomas who is the former head of security at Facebook. They take that it's up by south west in front of a live audience. That's coming tomorrow. We've got a regular verge house later in the week. But today, we're gonna mix it up. We're entrusting me. A little bit new. There's a new podcast in the vox media podcast family. It's called switched on pop. It's a podcast that digs in the music theory and cultural context pop music, I actually met Charlie one of the hosts at south by super interesting guy used to be Google engineer is linked fiber in Africa. And now he makes his podcast about music. And he was telling me about this episode. And I thought virtuous listeners really like it. It's all about how the streaming platforms, and how they work have changed the way music sounds like literally how long songs are. So because of the way training platforms like Spotify pay people songs are getting shorter and albums have more tracks on it. It's totally wild Charlie in this co host Nate explain it, all I think you really really like it, and you should subscribe to Switzerland pop. So check it out. Fifty. Welcome switched on pop songwriter. Harding, and I'm musicologist Nate's. So Nate have you noticed this that has overtaken pop music in the last six months, which which one I feel like we're pop is full of anxiety. So according to many the economics of streaming is changing music. So significantly right now that pop me literally never sound the same again. And today I want to investigate these claims by seeing how musicians are altering their sounds to make it in today's streaming economy and to do this. I've recruited Aishah Hassan and Dan cop who have written about how streaming is affecting the sound of pop for courts in a piece called the reason, why your favorite pop songs are getting shorter Asia. And Dan wanted the show. Thanks for having us. Yeah. Thanks nice to be here. This is exciting. Yes. Okay. So in the recent guardian interview mega pop producer. Mark Ronson said that all your songs have to be under three minutes and fifteen. Winds because of people don't listen to them all the way to the end. They get into this ratio of non complete heard which sends your Spotify rating down and song writers are forced to churn out hits at short order. So I can you untangle Bronson's gripe and explain what is causing so much concern. So the way that many music streaming services work is that songs generate money per play. That means every time that there's streamed they generate a certain amount of money, and that's very little so it ranges between zero point zero zero four dollars to zero point zero zero eight dollars. And then if you don't play it to the very end and that rating goes down, meaning that people don't listen to the song through as much then the song is less likely to make it into Spotify really lucrative playlists which them streamed more, and because the amount of money is so little volume is really important. So this is obviously extremely different from how artists were paid in the past. Right. I think it's important to note that. Artists right now, according to a report in two thousand seventeen they're only getting about ten percent of the music industry's total revenue, but streaming so important because that's how they're going to break out. Right. And if they're not going to be heard by audiences then less people are going to buy their tickets for their concert size. People are going to buy their merch so to be visible. It's really important to sometimes game the streaming system. So more people listen to their stuff. Okay. Gaming this remix. There's some sort of sort of perverse incentives going on here and just sort of get sort of order magnitude around this a CD used to cost fifteen to twenty dollars. And how many songs do you have to stream in order to make the equivalent on an old record so thousand streams quivalent of six dollars. So we're talking about fifteen hundred streams to get nine dollars. An and of course in artists probably is only making a fraction of those nine dollars..

Dan the show. Yeah. Thanks nice to be here. This is exciting. Yes. Okay. So in the recent guardian interview mega pop producer. Mark Ronson said that all your songs have to be under three minutes and fifteen seconds because of people don't listen to them all the way to the end. End. They get into this ratio of non complete heard which sends your Spotify writing down and song writers are forced to churn out hits at short order. So I can you untangle Ranson's gripe and explain what is causing so much concern that many music streaming services work as that songs generate money per play. That means every time that there's streamed they generate a certain amount of money, and that's very little so it ranges between zero point zero zero four dollars to zero point zero zero eight dollars. And then if you don't play it to the very end that rating goes down, meaning that people don't listen to the song through as much then the song is less likely to make it into Spotify really lucrative playlists which them streamed more, and because the amount of money so little volume is really important. So this is obviously extremely different from how artists were paid in the past. Right. I think it's important to note that artists right now. According to a report. In two thousand seventeen they're only getting about ten percent of the music industry's total revenue, but streaming so important because that's how they're going to break out. Right. And they're not going to be heard by audiences then less people are going to buy their tickets for their concert. People are going to buy their merch so to be visible. It's really important to sometimes game the streaming system. So more people listen to their stuff. Okay. Gaming, this drinks. There's some sort of sort of perverse incentives going on here and just sort of get sort of order magnitude around this a CD used to cost fifteen to twenty dollars. And how many songs do you have to stream in order to make the equivalent on an old record so thousand streams quivalent of six dollars. So we're talking about fifteen hundred streams to get nine dollars. An and of course in artists probably is only making a fraction of those nine dollars. That's exactly right. The music services tend to take thirty percent of that revenues Spotify or alpha musical, whatever we'll take around thirty percent. And then even though you've got the rest of the money going to artists depending on the deal that they have a record labels and the amount of people who have contributed to the track that money, which is very little at the beginning is split up. Even more so artists are actually getting a very very small amount of money. Okay. So this is interesting. We have two different issues at hand. Now that we have to deal with one as you mentioned this question of our songs getting shorter and sort of why? And then also are there. Certain like time markers are boundaries that you have to fit within is that changing the way that perhaps people are writing music, and so let's take them in that order. So our songs are songs any shorter. Yes. Definitely. Around two thousand the median length of a billboard one hundred songs was well over four minutes about four minutes and seven seconds. And in two thousand eighteen it was just over three and a half minutes. So we've lopped off more than thirty seconds off the average billboard hot one hundred songs. So that's that. So Mark Ronson anxiety that that Charlie quote at the beginning of this episode is is perhaps warranted songs are getting shorter. Yes. And there's also these extreme example. So there are a bunch of songs now that are under two and a half minutes long. So in the two thousands there were virtually no songs under two and a half minutes that made the charts and in two thousand eighteen about six percent of them were less than two and a half minutes, and some even just two minutes, you documented this in your piece, and there's like a hockey stick graph basically starting in. I don't know like twenty fifteen twenty fifteen all the sudden there's all these songs that are now two and a half minutes or shorter you pointed to Connie west and little pumps. I love which comes in at just over two minutes. How correct. So the question of where's the music going curious in in your investigations how much? This is intertwined with the dominance of hip hop as the main form of today's popular music. So it's a coupla hated thing to answer because hip hop has seeped into all genre. So even when you listen to country as you've pointed out in previous shows country now has a hip hop effect. But if you look at every genre. They've all phone Rb rock country. All of them have taken a big dive over the last two decades wrap the most. So it's definitely the biggest phenomenon there. But it's not just a hip hop thing. So on the one hand, we have some different incentive structures set up and just to be clear about them. Minor sending we have songs are getting shorter. Because the way that you get paid with streaming is personal and it used to be since the I don't know the age of album oriented music that the Elbe was the main way that you made a major money. So now, if you're getting paid per song, it makes sense to have like twenty really short songs that might actually run shorter than an album length. That would be ten songs that are twice three times as long, and so you're you're gaming can I get as many songs in. It's possible. Is that is that an accurate description of how some people understanding this? I just want to complicate things a little bit. So yes, we are pretty confident that streaming matters. But this is actually a pretty long term trend. So if we look over the twentieth century, you'll see that songs were quite short in the forties and fifties. And then they got way longer through the latter half of the twentieth century and then starting around the late nineteen ninety s all the way up today, we see songs shortening. So it's definitely got to be more than just dreaming. But we're confident that sort of the effect that we're seeing over the last several years is a result of the desire to make more money from having shorter songs. And if somebody listens to an album repetitively, the artists will get more money, but there's definitely more going on there than just streaming. Okay. So Spotify actually put out a press release about this phenomenon and said that in the world of digital consumption are narrow windows of free time are the object of fierce competition by the seemingly limitless choices streaming platforms present short songs represent solution to an. Audiences abundance of choice alongside endless opportunities for diversion. So there's sort of a question of like our audience is also driving this perhaps. That's that's what they're suggesting. I think what we need to do though is examined the music and see is this really going on. And I'm particular interesting looking at like if psalms are getting shorter what's being put on the chopping block. And so we really established it hip hop is. Most dominant form of pop music right now, go on the billboard sixty seventy percent of the charts are going to be hip hop. And if you also look at the songs, which tend to be shorter, especially these sort of two minute, two and a half minute songs. Lotte hip hop lungs in there as well. And I think there's a there's a part of this which makes sense because in have you don't necessarily have as rigid structure of pop song. You don't necessarily have to have for example, a pre course or post chorus or bridge you can just have hook verse hook verse and you're out. And so when you look song like s and low pumps piece, they're doing exactly that. As you steal. I try. Sparkler one came out. Such a. Sick. Like the quick I'm a sick. Like, let's you to verse piece instead of you know, you go back to nineties hip hop. You might have had three four five versus a song. So it's easy to just you can chop it down make more songs that makes sense to me. I think we're things get more complicated. Are when songs are using sort of more traditional verse chorus song form. So if we look at song like he side that's on comes in two minutes and fifty four seconds, which is pretty short pops on and I wanted to look at where's the extra music going? So let's listen to Benny Blanco's east side. And we're gonna listen to just what happens at the end goal. They side.

Cardi B Tapped For Las Vegas Residency
"Who has just signed up for a Las Vegas residency. And this is great news. I think because what we're learning we've been learning for the last year or few years is that the Las Vegas. Residency is not for old dusty accent anymore. And I think this is great news. We have a new Las Vegas residency in its Cardi B. So this to me the reason why okay, sandy just because my brain I've been looking at this all week, and it just dawned on me like how you're saying. Because I my mom just made a comment you like, you know, what happens when they send him to Vegas that. It's not anymore. And that's what I this is exciting to me because for a few reasons among them. First of all, I think that like concerts, the whole concerts have sort of lived in our lifetime has changed so much. I was talking to our social media person here at the radio station Hannah, she's millennial, and we were talking about how she was did, you know, that you used to be like a window at Dayton's where you'd go to get tickets to concerts, and it was like, yeah. Yeah. That's how I want to get tickets. We did you either use your telephone. Yes. And sat on hold for one hundred years or you walked your but to either Dayton's or like there was a window at the rainbow foods in uptown. Yes, there they're always windows at foods, and you would wait in line. And you could get a front row seat by waiting in line. If you were there early enough or you get a ticket. You know, you'd get a number like lottery if you had an early number you could get a front row ticket. And you know, what my husband had a front row ticket to see. The Rolling Stones that he only paid fifty dollars earner and that was expensive at the time soon. I'll think about what a front row seat to a concert would cost in two thousand nineteen fifty dollars. No, you wouldn't even be able to get in the arena for fifty dollars. Eight hundred minimum. That would be like an okay concept. Either of you paid that much money to sit front row in an added concert. Never. I've never sat for dessert. I feel like sonny's cooler than all of us. I'm pretty sure I listen Yami to sit down and have a talk with my daughter. Okay. So we will cool. You are. Honestly, I it's unbelievable how how much it costs to see a concert now. And so when and and when you would go to Las Vegas that would be like the sign that your career was ending. You could no longer fill in arena, and you needed to go there to live out the remainder of your days until you went to glory, and that was the end of debut had some gambling debts too. You had some penguins to buy exist. I mean, it was it was a different world. Yes. It was a different world steady gig. And now, I I think it's a really wise thing to just stay in your small intimate place. It's usually like a nightclub tape gig or smaller theatre type gig in Las Vegas. Have the people come to you. It is a great for whatever venue. You're playing. It is extremely lucrative for them. It's far more affordable for the spectator. What's interesting about some of these residencies that have been announced in the past couple of weeks with really hot acts is that they're not going to be performing in arenas. So they're not going to be at the Coliseum like Celine? Dion. Mariah carey. They're gonna be playing nightclubs. So I think it was last week. It was announced that Drake is doing a nightclub residency at the encore. Yeah. And then Mark Ronson is doing a nightclub residency at the park MGM and Cardi B's residency. That was just an. Ounce yesterday, that's going to be beat the palms hotel. Yeah. So these are all associated with nightclubs, which brings a whole new level of intimacy to their performances, which is awesome. Yeah. Yeah. So anyway, I just I think this is really exciting. And I'm hoping we'll see more of this. Because I just I do think, you know, first of all I love Las Vegas. Second of all the idea of being able to go to Las Vegas and see an artist that doesn't really. You think about this? Okay. So sit with me here Sanni like going to Las Vegas is an you can do it pretty inexpensively relatively. I know that there's still a vacation and still, you know, it's not cheap to hop on an airplane. But as far as they go, you can do it relatively inexpensively. And so if you've budgeted for it think about being able to go there and go relatively inexpensively to see more than one artists that you've always wanted to see up and down the strip you do that for the price that you might pay to see one. Ernest in the front row at an arena. And that's kinda cool. Like when I think about being able to
"mark ronson" Discussed on The Morning Toast
"Okay for now. She's getting replaced. Very sets up originally motions picture. Shallow stars born. I didn't know Mark Ronson wrote it I mean, I'm not surprised because everything Mark Ronson touches turns to gold, and he's the underrated hottest most eligible bachelor in Hollywood who comes from like socialite rich family like he has money, but he also comes through money like what's better than that love him. And I didn't know he was a part of it. And it made the most sense. But when they when they made the announcement they were shallow and then the Bank him on the speaker. And he was like the word is being septic by Mark Ronson. That's all they said. And there were four fucking people on stage and didn't even say lady Gaga. And I was thinking did she not right? It weird. Maybe like Mark Ronson paid then on Twitter. They all got it all four of them. They got you. Now when you talk about because those are the most important categories lady Gaga's pass to this. Because if she wins if she doesn't win best actress, but she wins ready. She. Has an EMMY. Just look it up because she didn't nominated for all four. Right. So it's EMMY Grammy. Oscar, Tony Golden Globes. Don't even matter. Oh, so she has an EMMY believe for American horror story. She has Grammy's. Of course, she needs an Oscar. And I guess she needs a Tony look, this is this written by pops are gonna you. Although it seems like has won a ton of a wards ready. She's actually still aways away from the designation. The vast majority of goggles awards from the music industry, including six Grammys. She does at two Golden Globes for American horror story, and now for a SARS those count towards e got what about an EMMY she has an Oscar for song. Because even if Gago wins Ozark, she doesn't even she Chicago winded for one happens to you. Right. Even if Gago wins one or more authors for stars won't utility halfway there. She needs an EMMY. And she needs a Tony. She has a Grammy. I believe that she'll get those things with us writing for her will be the hardest to get so she can get it right now than she can work towards the other thing. Yeah. Okay. Okay. So the Tony might be hard for her to get because Tony's are like. Theater? She doesn't do that. But she does new Sheila like. But like like in the foreseeable future. She's really focusing on her acting career and her biggest residency like Tony doesn't come from that. No. But but she could get one is she just wants to. Plus, she she has it. Tony bennett. Who wasn't? He got judge is not one John Goldberg. I think. Okay. Now, it's going to some of the specific moments. Like when Chrissy Mets called Allison Brie a bitch. And then Chrissy Mets. A cadet said she virtually rebuffed it she brutally rafted because there are pictures of them together like they've met. And it seems like there would seem like it was a joke. And there is no the clip that what was it entertainment tonight or whoever had there was a bleep on it. But that means someone hurt it because there's like a ten second delay on live streams, so that because of that reason alone when they hear a curse word, they get ten seconds to bleep it out. So someone had to have heard it in order to put the bleep, right? Pre show coho Simpson till takes that she believes Mets might have called her babe. You know, what I'm choosing to believe that she did say bitch because she said do I she's Mitch like that's not bad. Jill like, she's Mitch like that as I don't know it could have been a joke for bitching. It could have been joke for sure, but is unfortunate. Also, the lead up to it before they cut from her before she didn't realize where Mike was on. Like, do you know, how do I like she didn't seem overwhelmingly happy to hear the algebra was coming up next? Right. She said, it's terribly unfortunate. Anyone would think much Renna story? Was completely fabricated. I Allison would never say that word about her anyone. I'm sure hope she knows my heart and Allison Brie Instagram story of a picture of the two of them saying nothing but love for Chrissy Mets. Rumors can't keep us down. Okay. But here's the thing about, Krissy..

Miley and Mark Ronson are clearly trying to make a social statement with the video it's very political. It's also got a lot of Easter eggs and nods to her previous videos wrecking ball. What are some of the other little party in the USA in the USA overstuffed oversight stuffed animals from we can't stop the football players taking a knee, which of course, is the NFL protests against police brutality. There's a reference to the king is naked. She's been very politically much very pointed about she does not like President Trump's. So she's got some bad the end of the videos, her lane on top of a car, you know, with their arms crossed out, you know, like like almost sicker crucifixion pose and score jazz.

You know, she lost her home in Malibu, and they're firefighters and scenes from that fire. And by the way, you know, your cousin Greg who lived on the hillside Malibu from the country market only his house. He doesn't live there anymore his house and the next door. Neighbor are the right below him. The only two in that area on that whole hillside, you're kidding. Every single house has got Julian I know this area radio.
