Janick

Chairman / CEO

From the 7.13% market share Interscope Geffen A&M held when Janick arrived in 2012, today it tops all competitors with a 10.2% share in album consumption (album sales, plus equivalent value from song streams and sales), the second straight year it leads the trade. With a roster that includes Lady Gaga, Billie Eilish, Benny Blanco, BLACKPINK, Eminem, Selena Gomez and Olivia Rodrigo, Interscope garnered more than 250 gold or platinum certifications just this year. Eilish took the Record of the Year Grammy for “Everything I Wanted,” while her new album “Happier Than Ever” debuted at No. 1 in June. Now Rodrigo has emerged as the breakout artist to beat, with first single “Driver’s License” standing as the year’s most consumed song and her “Good 4 U” close behind.
