Corson

Co-Chairman / COO

Corson overhauled his label’s executive team, appointing new department heads for marketing, digital marketing, commercial revenue and creative sync licensing. Among the fruits of that new structure was the breakthrough of Anitta, whose “Envolver” reached No. 1 on Spot­ify’s Global chart, a first for either a Brazilian artist or a Latin female solo act. The song earned her a performance and a Best Latin trophy at MTV’s Video Music Awards, making her the first Brazilian to win a VMA. The reunion of David Guetta and Bebe Rexha resulted in “I’m Good (Blue),” which went to No. 1 in more than a dozen countries, including the U.K. And leave it to the Red Hot Chili Peppers to both sell out a global stadium tour and release nearly three hours of music in the same year, enough to result in two albums, one of them a chart topper.
