THE HOME STRETCH: 2017 MARKETSHARE

UMG has once again sliced off the biggest piece of the marketshare pie, while Atlantic, Columbia and Republic will win the gold, silver and bronze in the label competition. Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. (TDE/Aftermath/Interscope) is the year’s biggest album, and “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber (UMLE/RBMG/ Def Jam/Republic) is the most-streamed track.

Scroll down for the marketshare standings, Top 50 albums and Top 50 streamed songs. I.B. Bad lays out the key plotlines in “The Rainmakers of 2017.”
