GM - The Big 4

The 'Big 4' describes the four major corporate labels that dominate the recorded music industry. They include:
  1. Universal Music Group
  2. Sony Music Entertainment
  3. Warner Music Group
  4. EMI group
Each of these labels consist of many smaller companies and labels which serve different regions and markets around the world.

The 'Big 4' was originally the 'Big 5' until Sony acquired BMG in 2004.
The 'Big 4' is now the 'Big 3' as EMI was bought out by Universal in 2011.
