    Warner Music UK Enjoys Record Breaking Year at The BRIT Awards

    Warner Music UK (WMUK) is celebrating the company’s most successful BRIT Awards yet. WMUK artists won six of the eleven awards (six of the eight UK awards) announced during the show, more than any other music company. These awards follow a spectacular showing for Max Lousada’s Warner Music at the Grammy Awards in New York last month.

    At the 38th BRIT Awards, Dua Lipa took home British Breakthrough Act and British Female Solo Artist, Ed Sheeran won Global Success, Gorillaz was crowned British Group, and Stormzy was awarded British Male Solo Artist and Mastercard British Album of the Year, for Gang Signs & Prayer. The awards see a diverse group of artists from WMUK labels recognized, with ADA, Atlantic, Parlophone and Warner Bros. all marking wins. In addition, Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Liam Gallagher, Rita Ora and Stormzy all lit up London’s O2 Arena with the most electric and exciting performances of the night.

    Max Lousada, CEO Recorded Music, WMG and Chairman & CEO, Warner Music UK said: “Tonight was a celebration of the unprecedented opportunities for home-grown U.K. talent on the global stage. Artists like Dua, Stormzy, Ed, Liam, Rita and Gorillaz are making hugely popular and influential music that is moving culture and cascading throughout the world.  Congratulations to all the winners, nominees and performers, and thank you for making music, and life, more dynamic and exciting.”
