In this mini-episode of Hit Parade, host Chris Molanphy is joined by Billboard’s Senior Director of Music, Jason Lipshutz. The two discuss Jason’s recent interview with Lewis Capaldi—which was referenced in the latest episode of Hit Parade about the definition of “one-hit wonder”—and the pressure musicians still face to escape that fate and generate hits after their initial breakout. Plus, Jason and Chris share some of their personal favorite one-and-done hits, from such forgotten hitmakers as the New Radicals and OMI.
Next, Chris quizzes a Slate Plus listener with some music trivia, gives him a chance to turn the tables on him, and previews next month’s full-length episode.
