“In the absence of magic, there is metrics.”
At an event we hosted this past Wednesday, Matt Medved from Billboard said the above quote came to him in a dream.
In our data-driven industry, how powerful! It couldn’t be closer to the truth. Who is concerned with how many sales Bruno Mars’ album has? Does anybody care how many views a Kendrick Lamar video has? Star power transcends the numbers.
All of the performers last night have risen above the need to use metrics, which is a magical place to be.
