LOS ANGELES (AP) - Universal Music Group celebrated its domination on the charts with an event featuring its top acts, including Robin Thicke and Lorde.
The music corporation, the parent company to labels like Interscope, Def Jam and Republic Records, held an ultra-exclusive brunch honoring its CEO Lucian Grainge at Lure in Los Angeles.
Thicke closed the event with a rich performance of “Dream World” and put the crowd into a party mood when he sang “Blurred Lines,” which is nominated for record of the year at Sunday’s Grammys.
Lorde sang her Grammy-nominated hit “Royals,” while Ariana Grande was a vocal powerhouse when she performed two songs.
At one point last year, UMG held all 10 spots on the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Artists on its labels include Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.
