YouTube Adds A New Section For Displaying Additional Credits For Songs


More than half a billion videos on YouTube will, from today, carry credits covering songwriter, label and publisher data – and it just keeps getting better. 

The Google platform has just announced that it is adding ‘credits and music discovery information’ to both premium music videos and – for the first time ever – to fan-uploaded content that features recorded music. Users will be able to access the credits when they click the ‘Show More’ button under each video. The credits will affect the presentation of millions of songs, and that details of other tracks will be continually added to YouTube as part of an evolving process.

This drop-down area of the show more will include artist, songwriter, publisher and label information, in addition to a link to the Official Artist Channel and official music video if available.

YouTube said in a blog that the move would “provide greater recognition and exposure to the people who contribute to the creative process [and] more opportunities for artists and songwriters to reach YouTube’s diverse audience”.





How to add credits to your videos

If you have at least 5,000 subscribers, you’ll have access to Credits, which you can use to highlight the contributions of your collaborators with a credit that appears on your video below the description.

To add credits to your videos:

  • Open the video you’d like to edit
  • On the basic info tab, scroll down to the “Video Credits” section.
  • Add a role and identify the collaborator by typing in their YouTube username or by adding the channel URL
  • When your changes are complete, click Save

In today’s digital world, achieving accurate and comprehensive song credits is more attainable than ever. What YouTube has done by making credits a priority to its platform, will allow a better music experience for all.

The feature will help in funnelling credit — and the money that comes along with it — to the right people. “Music in this video” will be available starting today on both desktop and the YouTube app.
