First Country: New Music From Sam Hunt, Brothers Osborne, Runaway June and More

Technology isn’t always our friend, especially when it comes to affairs of the broken heart, Hunt laments in this slinky track from Southside. Delivered in his trademark spoken/sung style, Hunt can’t escape his ex on this slow jam because her photos are always popping up on his social media and, even worse, he can’t pretend that she’s called and he missed like call like people could in the ‘90s.

Brothers Osborne, Skeletons

“Got skeletons in your closet/and I’ve got bones to pick with them,” growls TJ Osborne on the brotherly duo’s third studio album. The boldness never lets up on the collection as they unleash a kinetic energy on such tracks as “All Night” and “Lighten Up.”

There’s a confidence here (check out swampy, fun instrumental “Muskrat Greene), but there’s also heart on tracks like “Make It A Good One” and “Hatin’ Somebody.” Brothers Osborne go from strength to strength.

Thanks to a rush of new gamers, Playrix has become the world’s largest mobile-game developer after Tencent Holdings Ltd., according to researcher AppAnnie. Its founders and sole owners, 38-year-old Igor and Dmitry Bukhman, 35, have more than doubled their wealth and are now worth $3.9 billion each, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

That didn’t happen by accident: At the height of the health crisis, as companies cut down on advertising, the mobile-game developer took advantage of lower ad prices to increase its marketing. Monthly users surged 50% to 180 million at the peak of the outbreak, and sales jumped about 60% to $1.75 billion in the first eight months of the year, the company said. The number of gamers has since stabilized at 150 million monthly.
