Aaron
Bay-Schuck

Co-Chairman / CEO

Upping Warner Records’ game in the pop and hip-hop arenas were two of Bay-Schuck’s goals when he joined the label. Successes by social media star Bella Poarch, rapper Saweetie and popster Bebe Rexha suggest he’s on the right track. Poarch’s “Build a Bitch” fetched 15.5 million YouTube views on its release day and 93 million that week. That first number was a record for any Warner act, the second a YouTube record for a new artist, also putting the Filipino-American singer at No. 1 on the platform’s global and U.S. charts. Saweetie’s 
“Best Friend,” featuring her buddy Doja Cat, hit the top on the Rap Digital Song Sales chart, while Rexha’s “Meant to Be,” featuring country duo Florida Georgia Line, became only the sixth single in four years to be certified Diamond for logging 10 million units.
