Inclusion in the Recording Studio?

Our annual report on inclusion in music examines gender and race/ethnicity of artists and content creators across 800 popular songs on the Billboard Hot 100 year-end charts from 2012 to 2019. The study also evaluates gender for six years of Grammy nominations for Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Producer of the Year, and Best New Artist.
