Quantcast
SIR LUCIAN TAKES A VICTORY LAP

Sir Lucian Grainge celebrated UMG's domination of the weekly chart with this internal message to his troops.

 

Dear Colleagues,

 

UMG’s artists and labels once again have demonstrated a remarkable level of success. 

 

This week, UMG accounts for eight of the Top 10 albums and all of the four top chart positions on the Billboard 200.

 

That alone would be enviable, however, what makes today’s results even more impressive is the breadth of our labels behind those albums: RepublicInterscopeCapitolCaroline; Universal Music Group Nashville; and Def Jam.

 

As I’ve said before, charts are but snapshots of achievement, yet, when you look at the entire first quarter of the year, UMG had both the No. 1 album (Migos Culture II) and the No. 1 track (Drake’s “God’s Plan”).

 

One more thing is clear: without your passion and dedication, our ability to consistently achieve these types of results wouldn’t be possible.

 

Congratulations,

 

Lucian
