Beyonce, Jay Z top Billboard Power 100 list

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Beyonce and Jay Z share the top spot on Billboard's Power 100 list.

Universal Music Group CEO Lucian Grainge and Red Light Management founder Coran Capshaw follow the performers on the annual list of most influential people in the music industry.

Grainge and Capshaw placed first and second last year, respectively.

Billboard editors compiled the list after analyzing market share, revenue and other data.

Jay Z and Beyonce each founded their own companies, Roc Nation and Parkwood Entertainment.

Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun; music producer Dr. Luke; Spotify CEO Daniel Ek; recording executive Jimmy Iovine; and Ryan Seacrest also made the list.

If you don't like it, tell your children to stop buying it. Make them take guitar and drum lessons, and let's get some ROCK BANDS going again.

SFL722-J Zebra is a crack dealer.  Once a crack dealer, always a crack dealer.  His "music" is degrading and full of racial slurs.  Don't give me the bull only black people can use it.  Yes I know it sells and he makes alot of money.  In the end he will have to answer.  He may have to answer and pay long before he passes on to  the big crack dealing hood in the sky.  I hope so.

@fcV5 What an ignorant and idiotic comment!!  This is msn reporting on Billboard's power 100 list...its right in the title for crying out loud!  Not to mention how pathetic and stupid you sound bringing in politics to the discussion.  Oh and by the way, the reason they are at the top isn't only about underwear and stripper poles (although that unfortunately does help in our society), its because they are massively successful off the stage as well.

@aquadillaMan Congratulations on being the biggest dirtbag on the internet, its quite an accomplishment. Not only have you managed to come across as inciting violence and promoting racism but you managed to do so under the veil of anonymity, very brave sir!
