⚠️ Caveats

A roster’s popularity on Spotify is a simple but imperfect way to rank management companies. It doesn’t take into account revenue, record sales, tickets, creativity or a myriad of other important aspects. It also favors companies that represent genres that "stream better" & in larger markets. It is, however, based on data, not opinion. 🚫 No publicists were consulted in the making of this list.

Gender Balance

This chart shows the gender balance across all solo artists represented by the Top 100 management companies. ⭐ Male artists outnumber Female artists by more than 2 to 1 (70%). 💡 Talent agency rosters have a similar breakdown. If the top mgmt co's & booking agencies are overwhelming imbalanced, then we'll continue to see that downstream on lineups, awards & overall commercial equity.
