Syco Named Top UK A&R Label of the Year by Music Week
Music Week has named Syco Entertainment the top label for A&R in the UK for 2013. Its report on the UK market published in the latest edition states that Syco:
“… not only topped Music Week’s chart of the top labels of the year based on sales of the 100 biggest non-catalogue, UK-sourced albums, but pulled off the same trick with singles, too.
In both markets One Direction delivered Syco’s biggest seller with ‘Midnight Memories’ heading its album’s performance and ‘One Way Or Another’ and ‘Teenage Kicks’ singles.
The 1D album, the year’s top artist seller overall with 684,754 sales, according to the Official Charts Company, helped to give the label a 13.0% A&R market share of UK-derived repertoire.”
