And these sub labels have sub labels to them The majors were EMI, Sony/BMG, Universal. But this has developed into a different kind of label The majors did make less than 1 in 5 of all controlled releases, and sell about 70% of recorded music worldwide. The rest was sold by the independents, but this has also changed. There are thousands of Independent labels, and they often specialize in a particular style or genre.
