By The Way: Trump Pardons Lil Wayne, Van Morrison Sues Northern Ireland, Spotify Losing Podcast Bet, FIFA and UMG on FIFA Sound

By The Way, is a rapid-fire segment that gives you a snapshot of developing stories in the music world. This week, Donald Trump practices his pardon power one last time before he leaves the office, granting clemency to several people, including American rapper, Lil Wayne. Legendary rockstar, Van Morrison, a vocal critic on UK lockdown policies, plans a legal challenge against Northern Ireland’s ban on live music. Spotify’s multimillion-dollar investment into podcasts might not be working in their favor - are they able to stage a recovery and gain enough traction? Lastly, FIFA teams up with Universal Music Group in launching FIFA Sound, a strategy aimed to connect football and music fans, involving both players and artists.
