Opting-in for delivery to TikTok adds your music to the catalog of sounds available for users to embed in short-form mobile videos. These agile, creative, music-centric video clips help artists promote their songs, discover new fans, and interact with a global audience one clip at a time!
OK, so how will my music get on TikTok?
You can add TikTok as a store for music delivery when submitting new releases (assets) for distribution! For already saved releases, you can add TikTok by selecting 'Send to more' in the 'Live' tab of the asset's distribution breakdown. For instructions, click here.
How do I know if my tracks are eligible?
Any tracks that are eligible for Automated Claiming are eligible for TikTok. A release must only contain tracks that are opted-in for automated claiming to be sent to TikTok.
If your multi-track release has one song that is ineligible for automated claiming, then the whole release will not be delivered to TikTok. In order to send your eligible songs to TikTok, you can create a new release with only eligible tracks to distribute exclusively to TikTok.
What part of my song shows up in TikTok?
The clip will be 30 seconds long and start 45 seconds into the song by default. If you want it to start at a different point, read this article about song clip start times. Will my songs link back to my TikTok profile?
There isn’t artist page verification for TikTok yet, but we’ll get reports showing the usage of the official songs we deliver for you.
Do I get paid for music usage in TikTok?
Not yet, but it will be coming soon! What we do know is that payment will be based on how many different videos use your music, not only how many views any individual video generated.
How soon will my music be available on TikTok and how can I find it?
After we review and approve your release for distribution, delivery typically takes 48-72 hours to go live on stores. When searching for your music on TikTok, use both the track title + artist name and remember that new songs will appear at the bottom of the search.
Once my music is available on TikTok, how do people add it to their videos?
Users will be able to select a 15-second snippet of the 30-second sample clip for their videos. To add a song clip to a video a TikTok user can record a live video, assign music by clicking 'Sounds' at the top of the screen, and then trim and attach your song's audio file to match to their video.
What if I don't want my music on TikTok?
Simply don't select TikTok in the stores for delivery when submitting your release to the music stores and it will not be distributed there.
