Overview

How do major labels manage different genres, artists and staff? How do takeovers affect the treatment of artists? Why and how did EMI Records attempt to change their corporate culture?

Music Genres and Corporate Cultures reveals how the creation, circulation

and consumption of popular music are shaped by record companies and corporate business styles. Negus examines the tension between rap's public image as the "spontaneous music of the streets" and the practicalities of the market, and asks why country labels and radio stations promote

top-selling acts like Garth Brooks over hard-to-classify artists like Mary Chapin Carpenter, and how the lack of soundscan systems in Puerto Rican record shops affects salsa music's position on the US Billboard chart.
