Michael Rapino, el CEO de Live Nation Entertainment, encabeza el ranking anual.


La industria musical está en auge. A medida que el campo de juego se vuelve más competitivo, a los antiguos líderes de la música en vivo, tecnología, administración y de la grabación se le unieron 41 nuevas caras al nuevo ranking anual de las personas más influyentes y poderosas de la industria, el Billboard Power 100 (presentado por Coca-Cola For Me). Highlights latinos: en el puesto N°63, se encuentra Afo Verde, CEO de Sony Music Entertainment en Latinoamérica, España y Portugal, y en el N°62, Jesús López, Presidente y CEO DE Universal en Latinoamérica y la Península Ibérica.

Un comité de editores y periodistas de Billboard consideraron una variedad de factores al determinar el ranking de los Power 100 del 2018: los ranking de Billboard Top Artist y Top Tours de 2017; el impacto sobre el comportamiento del consumidor, medido por medio de las métricas de los charts, ventas y streaming; impresiones en redes sociales, y el alcance de radio y TV; la trayectoria; el impacto general en la industria. Cuando estaban disponibles, los resultados financieros fueron tomados en consideración. Las acciones del mercado de los sellos discográficos de Estados Unidos fueron consultados usando las métricas para álbumes de Nielsen Music y el equivalente en canciones y streams; también se tuvo en cuenta el ranking trimestral de Billboard de las Top 10 discográficas. El Boxscore de Billboard y Nielsen Music son las fuentes para verificar lo recaudado de tours y en ventas/streaming.
