SIR LUCIAN’S
WINNING TICKET

The numbers are all adding up for Sir Lucian Grainge: the remarkable 18 straight weeks UMG has scored the #1 album, with a 19th in the bag thanks to Taylor Swift’s just-released Fearless remake; Uni’s towering 38.5% YTD marketshare in the U.S.; and the tens of billions the music group’s upcoming IPO will fetch, as the mega-mogul has his company on fire at the perfect moment. Everything is in the plus column for Sir Lucian—with the glaring exception of the shout-out on the Contents page of our latest print issue, which is worth less than zero. He’d gladly give us a 20 to go away.
