Who's Hot this year

THE HOT LIST: Two months into 2010, the rainmakers who led the pack during the holidays are still racking up the big numbers. Leading the way is Rob Stringer’s Sony Music Entertainment, with 10.6%, paced by Steve Barnett’s Columbia (6.2%), as Susan Boyle continues to set the pace (463k year-to-date, good for #4), while Sade (687k in two weeks, putting her at #2) has put up a surprising and resounding W for Epic, beating expectations just as Lady A has done. Barry WeissRCA/Jive (8.6%) has also posted solid numbers behind rookie Ke$ha (375k, #5), making the label group #3 in new-release marketshare. Sandwiched between the two Sony Music powers is Jimmy Iovine’s IGA (9.1%), thanks primarily to the singles-spewing tandem of Lady Gaga (with 478k on #3 The Fame and another 232k on the eight-song The Fame Monster) and Black Eyed Peas (347k, #7).
