Thanks to such Hot 100 hits as Drake's "One Dance," DNCE's "Cake by the Ocean" and Ariana Grande's "Side to Side" (featuring Nicki Minaj), along with Mike Posner's Grammy-nominated "I Took a Pill in Ibiza" and Shawn Mendes' "Stitches" (both promoted to radio through Republic and under Walk), Republic Group owned 22 percent of top 40 airplay in 2016. "We don't play make-believe here," says the married father of four."
