Billboard’s Power 100: Jay Z And Beyonce Share Top Spot

Published

on

Billboard has released their annual Power 100 list and sharing the top ranking … Jay Z and Beyonce.

On Thursday night, the Emerson Theatre in Los Angeles was filled with stars as Billboard announced their list of the 100 most powerful players in the music industry.

Jay and Bey, music’s power couple, topped the list at number one. According to Billboard, not only has the power couple “used their star power to release new albums in unprecedented ways,” but the couple has completely changed how “the industry and fans thought about interacting with music.”

“Artists have always had the power but courage is in short supply. It’s just that the hip-hop generation believes in the possibilities,” said Lyor Cohen (No. 74), a longtime associate of Jay Z’s. “Jay and Beyoncé don’t listen to the noise … They make the noise.”

After the release of Jay’s Magna Carta Holy Grail, the album sold 528,000 in its first week and in total, the album sold 1.1 million copies in 2013. Beyoncé moved even quicker with her latest surprise, 14 track 17 video self-titled album. According to Billboard, in the first three hours of release the album sold 80,000 copies through iTunes and a reported 850,000 in the first week.

Billboard also recognized the couple’s power in the business world. With the launch of Jay Z’s Roc-a-Fella Records in 1996, to his current venture Roc Nation in 2008, and to Beyonce’s empire with Parkwood Entertainment, the two are more than deserving to top this year’s list.

Also making the Power 100 list, Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun, Ryan Seacrest and music producer Dr. Luke.
