Sony/ATV Scores It’s Highest UK Market Share

May 27, 2009

Following a record-breaking fourth quarter in 2008, Sony/ATV’s UK office kicked off 2009 by achieving its highest combined market share to date with 19.8% during Q1. This secured Sony/ATV in second place for the quarter, with Universal Music Publishing barely claiming victory with 20.5% (a .7% lead).

Although Sony/ATV’s album market share was its best since 2006, the majority of its success in Q1 was due to its domination of the singles market, where it finished with an incredible 23.5%.

Out of the Top 10 UK Singles of Q1, Sony/ATV had percentages on seven of them, including Lady Gaga’s “Pokerface” and “Just Dance,” James Morrison and Nelly Furtado’s “Broken Strings,” Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It),” Flo Rida’s “Right Round,” Alesha Dixon’s “Breathe Slow,” and Alexandra Burke’s rendition of “Hallelujah.” (All percentages from MusicWeek, 5/23/09)
