When you’re watching a video that contains music, there may be a section in the video’s description called “Music.” This section shows info about the music heard in the video, like song and artist names.
YouTube automatically adds this info to some videos when:
- Videos are claimed by one of YouTube’s copyright management tools, like Content ID.
- Videos contain music from the YouTube Audio Library.
Why is some info missing from the “Music" section?
If info in the “Music” section is missing or has an error, get in touch with your label or distributor. They can send us a metadata update with the correct information.
We’re continually working with our music industry partners to add more data and improve the quality and accuracy of the info we have.
For videos that contain many songs, info about the first ten songs will appear under the “Music” section.
What if I hear my song in a video, but don’t see the “Music” info?
The “Music" section may not appear for a variety of reasons, including:
- YouTube doesn’t have sufficient data from the copyright owner.
- Your music hasn’t been identified yet.
- The video was recently claimed and the info hasn’t populated yet.
- The video was marked as “made for kids.”
What if my song is listed, but the song credits or album art is wrong?
If you’re a recording artist or songwriter and your song has been identified with incorrect or incomplete info, please make sure you and your songs are registered with the ISNI Authority. Registering can help us confirm we have the best data to represent you and your music.
