Kallman

Chairman / CEO

You’ll find instances in music history when two heads ran one label, but few such partnerships last more than a couple years. Kallman and fellow Atlantic chair Julie Greenwald have been joined at the hip since 2005, and 2020’s results show once again why their matchup endures. Roddy Ricch’s “The Box” is 2020’s most streamed track, with more than a billion plays in the U.S. Australian artist Tones and I, along with Jack Harlow, join him in that top 10, while albums by Ricch and fellow rapper Lil Uzi Vert are two of the year’s 10 most consumed collections. Then, as temperatures soared in the throes of COVID, Cardi B’s “WAP,” featuring Megan Thee Stallion, emerged as the jam of the summer, riling traditionalist expectations of female gender expression for a highly durable anthem.
