Methodology: A committee of Billboard editors and reporters weighed a variety of factors in determining the 2019 Power 100 ranking, including, but not limited to, Billboard’s Top Artists and Top Tours of 2018 rankings; nominations by peers, colleagues and superiors; impact on consumer behavior as measured by metrics such as chart, sales and streaming performance; social media impressions; radio and TV audiences reached; career trajectory; and overall impact in the industry, using data available as of Jan. 24. Agency rankings were based, in part, on an analysis of the top 125 grossing touring artists based on figures reported to Billboard Boxscore for the period of Jan. 1, 2018, to Jan. 24, 2019. When available, financial results are taken into consideration. U.S. record-label current market share was consulted using Nielsen Music’s market share for album plus track-equivalent and stream-equivalent album consumption units, and Billboard’s quarterly top 10 publisher rankings. Unless otherwise noted, Billboard Boxscore and Nielsen Music are the sources for tour grosses and sales/streaming data, respectively. Unless otherwise noted, album streaming figures cited represent collective U.S. on-demand audio totals for that album’s tracks. Song/artist streaming figures represent combined U.S. on-demand audio and video totals.
