Social media giant TikTok through its recently launched subscription-based music streaming service TikTok Music has joined forces with music distribution service DistroKid, that allows millions of independent artists to upload and distribute their music within a click of a button.
The partnership is just another way to promote and help independent musicians to build an audience.
“TikTok is one of the most powerful music discovery platforms in the world,” Philip Kaplan, DistroKid founder and CEO, said in a statement. “The expansion of this partnership to include CapCut and the Commercial Music Library makes it super easy for millions of musicians to make their music available in even more places, while TikTok’s new music streaming service provides further reach as it becomes available in more countries.”
The move comes after TikTok launched TikTok Music not long ago in Australia, Mexico and Singapore market.
“TikTok Music is a new kind of music service that combines the power of music discovery on TikTok with a music streaming service offering millions of tracks from thousands of artists,” said the company spokesperson. “We are now beta testing TikTok Music in Australia, Mexico and Singapore, and will have more news to share on the launch of TikTok Music in the coming months.”
Distrokid is on the upward trajectory, over two million artists use the platform for its music distribution, monetisation, promotion, metadata customisation and storage services.
