Vice Chairman, Interscope
Last Year's Rank: 96

Interscope's 2015 highlights included breaking hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd and, in a Jeep commercial synch, alt-rockers X Ambassadors; and releasing Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly; Dr. Dre's first album in 14 years, Compton; and Selena Gomez's Revival. "We fought very hard to sign her," says Berman, who also cites Gomez's Victoria's Secret fashion show performance as a marketing coup.­­
