Jay-Z

CMU’s Andy Malt and Chris Cooke review key events in music and the music business from the last week, including Jay-Z claim in court that his fragrance launched in 2013 failed not because he didn’t live up to his agreement regarding promoting it but because of perfume company Parlux’s “crappy, lazy work”, plus the All Party Parliamentary Group On Music’s demand for “urgent action” from the UK government to tackle the crisis facing British musicians and crew planning to tour Europe as a result of the Brexit shambles.
