Get your songs on YouTube Music
CD Baby makes your music available for streaming on YouTube Music AND delivers Art Tracks for every song. (Art Tracks are videos that feature the cover art for your album or single).
Distribute your songs to one of the most powerful digital platforms ever built. You can reach listeners and earn money in two ways: paid streaming through YouTube Music and ad-supported Art Tracks on YouTube.com!
Let us deliver your music to YouTube today.
Make money when your music is used on YouTube
Any time one of your songs is used in a YouTube video — even videos you didn’t upload yourself — you’re entitled to collect ad revenue. We work in partnership with YouTube’s Content ID system to make sure every instance of your music is detected on YouTube.
Then, through CD Baby’s Social Video Monetization service (which also helps you earn money from your music in videos on Facebook and Instagram Stories), we’ll make sure you’re collecting everything you’re owed.
YouTube Monetization is INCLUDED with CD Baby distribution.
