FIRST-HALF MARKETSHARE SCOREBOARD

Here's how the Big Three and the major labels performed during the first six months of the year. The standings are followed by the Top 50 albums and the Top 50 streamed songs. See I.B. Bad for his takes.

Ed note: We made our very first error when the label marketshare was first posted, transposing #3 Interscope and #4 Republic. The order is now correct. Our resident conspiracy theorist insists that Monte Lipmanowski got to our printer with his Lithuanian hackers, but we’re unable to prove tampering at this time.
