Warner Music Group


CEO, Recorded Music

Lousada helped pull off Warner Music’s virtual IPO with a debut $1.9 billion valuation. The company looked for growth beyond Wall Street — seeing double-digit increases in digital revenue for Q3 2020 — and lured Island COO Eric Wong to Warner for the role of president of recorded music and CMO. WMG expanded operations in Vietnam and India, launched in Turkey and Peru and acquired far-flung labels like Monsp in Finland and Forza in Slovakia. In the U.S., Kenny Chesney earned his ninth number one album on the Billboard 200, tying Garth Brooks for most albums by a country artist, while Dua Lipa’s album, “Future Nostalgia,” soared in the U.K. as Milan rapper Ghali topped Italy’s albums chart with “DNA.”
