Take four high-flying, trendsetting titans and trail them for a full workday (and night… and morning). The result? Hundreds (nay, thousands) of text messages sent, bro-hugs exchanged, clients soothed, journalists schmoozed, naps snuck, deals struck and, on packed concert floors across the country, faces melted. Against the backdrop of an industry in upheaval, here’s how shit REALLY gets done in today’s snooze-you-lose music biz.

He paired the experience with two bottles of his buddy Jay Z’s Armand de Brignac champagne, a case of which Beyoncé sent over after the pair dueted flirtatiously on “Drunk in Love” at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park three days earlier.
