Revenue sharing

Premier Partners can monetize their content and earn revenue generated on SoundCloud. Subscriptions and advertising on SoundCloud directly support artists.

Who can join SoundCloud Premier?

As a Premier partner you can earn revenue from SoundCloud plays in the countries where we’ve launched monetization. There are currently two ways to become a Premier Partner:

Work with a record label or distributor

If you work with a record label or distributor, you can stop here. Tell your label or distributor you’d like to monetize your tracks on SoundCloud and if we currently work with them they will be able to set you up for Premier.

Join as an independent artist

If you don’t currently work with a record label or a distributor, and you own the necessary rights to your recorded tracks, you can sign up for SoundCloud Premier directly with SoundCloud.

Join as a DJ or producer

You can also join as a DJ or Producer to monetize your sets, remixes, and other creative works.

Independent artists

If you’ve released content through a label or distributor in the past, but currently self-release, your label or distributor can monetize content in which they have the necessary rights, and you can monetize content in which you have the necessary rights. Or, if you work with a label or distributor in some countries, but retain rights in others, your label or distributor can monetize content in the countries in which they have the necessary rights, and you can monetize content in the countries in which you have the necessary rights.

It’s hard to say that we would be where we are today without SoundCloud… it’s a great platform for our fans and new fans to check out our music.
