What’s the Deal with the US?

Now That’s What I Call Music is a series of compilation albums released in the United Kingdom. The albums are released every few months by Universal Music. So far, 62 volumes have been released.

What’s the deal with the US then? Well, the answer is a little complicated. See, Now That’s What I Call Music is actually a spin-off of a similar series that started in the US back in 1998. The US series was also originally compiled and distributed by Universal Music. However, since then, the rights to the franchise have been sold off to different companies in different countries. In the US, Now That’s What I Call Music is now put together by Sony Music Entertainment.

So why isn’t there a Now That’s What I Call Music 62: What’s the Deal with the US?

Whatever the reason, it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting a Now That’s What I Call Music 62: What’s the Deal with the US anytime soon.

##Heading: About
##Expansion:
Now That’s What I Call Music! (also simply titled Now or formerly Now 1) is a series of various artists compilation albums released in the United Kingdom and Ireland by Sony Music and Universal Music (Universal/Sony BMG/Zomba from 2001 until 2011), which debuted on 28 November 1983. Biased towards pop and rock music of the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s, each volume of the series was released fortnightly and reached number one in the UK Compilation Chart. The equivalent series for releases in North America are called NOW That’s What I Call Music! (with a different cover design) and have been issued by EMI Records since 1998 in Canada, 1999 in United States and 2000 for Mexico. In June 1984, Simon Draper – then managing director of Virgin Records – suggested to Peter Morrisroe – CEO ofVirgin Communications – that they create their own compilation albums similar to those being released by K-tel but with contemporary major label artists. The idea was passed onto EMI who outsourced its production to PWL; Morrisroe chose Trevor Horn as executive producer with input from Jon Webster.

The Future

It’s hard to imagine a future without the United States. For better or for worse, the US has been a major player on the world stage for centuries, and its impact can be felt in almost every corner of the globe. But what does the future hold for the US? Will it continue to be a world leader, or will it begin to retreat from its position of prominence?

Only time will tell, but one thing is certain: the US will continue to be a major force on the global stage for years to come.

Conclusion

References

The now series began in the UK in 1983 with the release of Now That’s What I Call Music, a double-LP of recent hits. The album was a huge success, and subsequent volumes were released regularly. In 2001, the series expanded to the US with the release of Now That’s What I Call Music! 10, which featured hits by Destiny’s Child, NSYNC, and Britney Spears.

Since then, the series has continued to be successful, releasing multiple volumes each year. However, there are some notable differences between the UK and US versions. For one thing, the US albums tend to be much longer, often featuring over 30 tracks compared to the UK’s 20-25. Additionally, while the UK albums generally stick to pop hits, the US versions often include a mix of genres, from country to hip-hop.

So why are the US versions so different? It may have something to do with the fact that the US market is much larger than the UK’s, meaning that there are simply more songs to choose from. Or it could be that US consumers are more willing to try new things than their UK counterparts. Whatever the reason, one thing is for sure: if you’re looking for a diverse selection of music, you’ll want to check out a Now That’s What I Call Music album from the US.
