From Lil Nas X to Jason Derulo and from Beyoncé to Prince, it’s not easy to be one of the industry’s best in publicity, but Phylicia Fant does it while looking flawless at the same time. Just some of her former titles include being the Vice President of Publicity at Universal Music Group and the SVP of Media and Strategic Development at Warner Music. She’s currently the Head of Music Industry and Culture Collaborations at Amazon Music, where she has transformed the brand, even working on Beyoncé’s merch deal, and she founded the Purple Agency for Public Relations and Marketing. She’s had a hand in the careers of Erykah Badu and India.Arie.
