Editor’s Note: How does BMG do it? One of the top R&B labels in 2020 -it seems very much like  Tim Reid and Ken Wilson along with dedicated team members and great music is why. Tim is a marketing master! Ken, and his independent team of promotion consultants, kick ass!  Congratulations to Tim and Ken on the success they have delivered for BMG Music!
