How do I release my music on social media?

What do I have to do to have my music releases on Facebook, Instagram or TikTok?

Please just select “Facebook / Instagram” or “TikTok” in the "Delivery" section of your release and the delivery to Facebook / Instagram and/or TikTok (depending on what you selected) will be automatic:

Note: Facebook/Instagram or TikTok are also available for releases published with our Starter price plan - you can choose Instagram/Facebook or TikTok as the only platform to distribute your music to.

Facebook / Instagram

1.1

 Monetization

Though you can post your release on Facebook, please note that we cannot monetize at the moment.

On Instagram, given that the preview of a song lasts max. 15 seconds, Instagram stories do not generate any income, but they can be used as promo material. 

1.2

 Lyrics

Lyrics can be added to Instagram stories. However, since they fall under another set of copyrights which we do not manage as a music distributor, you will have to upload them yourself.

To do so, create your account (or log in if you already have one), for free, on Musixmatch.

If you need more information about how to use Musixmatch, please follow the steps below:

Sign up as a verified artist on Musixmatch.

Sign up on Musixmatch.com and then Get verified on Musixmatch(musixmatch.com/verify-artist).

Add or verify lyrics on Musixmatch

 Linking Instagram profile to Instagram "Music" Stories Artist page and Facebook Stories

If you want your audience to be able to reach your profile on Instagram and/or Facebook stories, you can connect your Instagram profile to your songs.

To do so, please send us an email at support-en@imusician.pro and provide us with:

- Link of Artist profile on Instagram/Facebook
- Barcode of the corresponding release
- ISRC code of each track in the release

TikTok

2.1

 Monetization

We do monetize your music on TikTok.
Please note that streams are counted per "usage" of the track and not per "plays" or "views"
You can see the revenues from TikTok in your monthly sales report.
2.2

 Features

Following TikTok’s last update about the length of its videos, all new releases that are sent to TikTok will be available up to 60 seconds. Please note that these 60 seconds start from the “Preview clip start” that you selected when you created your release with iMusician:

If your release is already online, please note the available length will be automatically updated to 60 seconds by August 2021 latest.

2.3

 Did you get the “This sound isn’t licensed for commercial use” error or you can’t find your release in the TikTok soundbank?

This happens because you are probably using a business account and TikTok doesn’t allow business accounts to use mainstream music anymore.
You can overcome this issue by switching to a “Creator” or “User” account.
You can find more information about these 2 accounts here.
