How to do it..
The process is subject to change, and many pages have no set guidelines. Alright then, let’s begin.
Formerly known as Rap Genius, the lyric site allows you to upload and interpret the lyrics to your songs for any genre of music, literature, or poetry.
Spotify’s sources some of these lyrics, which you can easily edit and interpret with verification.

Shazam currently allows for artists to apply for verification if your music is on their site.
It is a quicker process if you’re already Twitter-verified, but you can submit for verification here.
After verification, you can view listener insights and post updates to your fans
To get verified and get a blue check mark on your profile, you’ll need to get access to Spotify for Artists. Once Spotify confirms who you are and give you access, you’re all set.

It may take a few weeks for your blue check mark to appear on your profile.
Non-artists (labels, non-profits, radio stations, and brands) can apply for verification here.
If your music is already on Pandora, you can claim your artist account here.
