August 29, 2023 – SoundExchange’s 20th anniversary is being celebrated in the pages of Billboard magazine! The August 26 issue of Billboard includes an interview with SoundExchange President and CEO Michael Huppe, where he discusses our 20-year and $10 billion distribution milestones, his tenure with SoundExchange, and the next big goals for the company.
“SoundExchange, 10 years from now, is going to be an even bigger part of the industry than we are today,” Huppe tells Billboard. “The sign of success, in 10 years, is that no one’s even talking about transparency or metadata or mistaken lineups or not knowing who wrote a song. I hope in 10 years, we’re not even talking about that because we’ve solved the problems that got us here.”
Physical copies of the magazine feature a special SoundExchange cover wrap featuring Usher, Reneé Rapp, Armani White, Train’s Pat Monahan, Ludacris, and other creators that are available to subscribers and on newsstands. Subscribers can also read it online at Billboard.
