Billboard’s Power 66 Team Harlem’s Mark Siegel, Steve Levine, And Rob Prinz Talk Music

Billboard reports that Harlem’s Mark Siegel, partners Steve Levine, and Rob Prinz are part of the Billboards Power 100 talk about their achievements in 2017 and projections for 2018:

Achievement of the year: “J. Cole’s world tour without a true radio hit and no features,” says Siegel of the artist, whose 2016 album, 4 Your Eyez Only, sold 363,000 copies in its debut week and reached RIAA platinum status last April. “He’s a safer bet to keep building because he’s not a prisoner of radio, and it’s not about being a fad. It’s the pureness of the art form,” adds the Harlem resident.

All Hail, Daniel Caesar: With a tastemaking roster that includes Lil YachtyKodak Black and Migos, as well as the shrewd signing of Daniel Caesar, ICM continues to be a winner in the hip-hop and R&B space. Rising Canadian soul singer Caesar netted two Grammy nominations for his debut LP, Freudian, and landed his first headlining North American tour that included sold-out stops at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg and Manhattan’s Highline Ballroom. “We could’ve done more,” says Siegel, “but we wanted to keep the experience intimate.”
