How to Get Verified on Spotify, Apple Music, Shazam & others

How to do it..



The process is subject to change, and many pages have no set guidelines. Alright then, let’s begin.


GENIUS

  • 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.

  • Claim your Genius Verified Account.

MUSIXMATCH

  • A top lyrics site that syncs with YouTube and other streaming platforms

  • Apply for verification here.

GOOGLE PLAY ARTIST HUB

  • Though only limited features, you can update your cover photo and artist bio on Google Play after verifying your account

  • Sign up here.

APPLE MUSIC CONNECT

SHAZAM CONNECT

  • 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

SPOTIFY

  • 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.

  • Make the most of Spotify by creating playlists and updating your cover image and bio

  • You no longer need 250 followers and a verification form to verify your Spotify artist page

  • 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.

PANDORA

  • If your music is already on Pandora, you can claim your artist account here.

  • Pandora AMP is a tool that lets verified artists see weekly track spins, listeners, and stations added with your music.

YOUTUBE

If it isn’t already, convert your YouTube Channel from a normal User to a Brand Channel. Your subscribers and content (excluding comments) will all migrate to the new channel.

There are two types of verification on YouTube:

  • Partner Verification ✓ → Unlocks additional features on your channel such as monetization, customized branding, copyright control, and ability to upload longer videos → Anyone can verify as a YouTube Partner by entering in your mobile number here

  • Name Verification → You can submit a request for a verification badge once you have 100,000 subscribers → Verification badges don’t affect search results for the channel or grant access to additional features on YouTube. → Learn more here.
