TuneCore Gets Your Music on YouTube

We'll make your music discoverable in YouTube Music as an Art Track - a video of your music synced with a still image of your cover art - in addition every other store you selected, from iTunes to Deezer.


You Get Paid 100%

Every play in YouTube Music earns you money, and 100% of that goes directly into your TuneCore account. No matter where fans are listening, you'll be paid every penny.

How to Earn Money from YouTube

Keep all of the royalties owed to you from YouTube Music.

Releases that TuneCore sends to YouTube Music will be made available on YouTube as "Art Tracks." Art Tracks are videos created by pairing your music with your cover art. Art Track videos can be easily searched, played, and shared with fans on YouTube or the YouTube Music app.

With over 1.5 billion active users per month worldwide, YouTube is one of the leading online video services in the world. By getting your music on YouTube Music, you make it effortless for new listeners to play your songs. And when YouTube pays you for those plays, we’ll put 100% of your earnings directly into your account.

How long does it take to get music on YouTube Music?

We make sure that your releases get out to your fan base as quickly as possible. It will take us about one day to approve your release. Then you can expect to find your releases on YouTube Music after about one to two weeks.

How often does YouTube Music pay out?

Though TuneCore gets you your digital sales and streaming revenue as soon as possible, we still have to wait for YouTube Music. There is typically a two-month delay on streaming and download revenue earnings. So, if you put your music on YouTube Music in January, you’ll see your first payments in March.
