Virgin EMI Records

Ever since the label was founded 40 years ago by Sir Richard Branson, Virgin Records has been at the heart of every seminal moment in music. In March 2013, Virgin joined forces with another illustrious name in music – EMI – to become Virgin EMI Records, starting a new chapter in the history of both iconic labels. Virgin EMI is home to artists from across the music spectrum, extending from Emeli Sande, the biggest-selling artist of last year, to Jake Bugg, the biggest breakthrough artist of 2013 so far, alongside international superstars Sir Elton John, Rihanna, Kanye West, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber.
