LEADING OFF:
RON’S BIG RUN

When you’re talking about New & Developing Artists—as we do at length—in our latest print issue—you gotta give it up to Columbia boss Ron Perry. Big Red’s Chairman has not only signed and cultivated a phalanx of chart-topping acts; he’s also put his creative stamp on his young roster—which is currently on fire.

Lil Nas X and The Kid LAROI, both of whom he’s A&R’d, hold the #1 and #2 spots at both Spotify and Apple Music U.S. as the new issue hits your desks; LAROI also reigns on our Top 50 chart. BTS, with whom he’s worked as producer, has multiple big global cuts. Meanwhile, Polo G continues to blaze.

With LAROI's "Stay," LNX's two monsters—"Industry Baby" and "MONTERO (Call Me by Your Name)"—and BTS' "Butter" and "Permission to Dance," Big Red has five of the Top 10 songs in the land.

Ron’s always excited to receive our magazine, we should add, because it gives Ms. Larry David something to do her business on.
