Jaxsta is the world’s largest database of deep-linked official music credits. DistroKid is the leading distributor of independent music, which represents 30-40% of new music in the world. As a result of this new agreement, DistroKid’s two million members can have their credits included in Jaxsta’s comprehensive database of more than 240+ million music credits from more than 15+ million creatives.
TikTok isn’t just challenging YouTube for viewership—it’s taking traffic away from other Google services like Search and Maps. Prabhakar Raghavan is the senior vice president who runs Google’s Knowledge & Information division. “In our studies, something like almost 40% of young people, when they’re looking for a place for lunch, they don’t go to Google Maps or Search. They go to TikTok or Instagram.”
New data from Morning Consult shows a surprising number of consumers aren’t letting at-home film viewing eat into their trips to the movie theater. As of late June, roughly 3 in 10 respondents who made a premium video-on-demand transaction in the past month said they went to a movie theater at least once a week during that time period, a share far higher than among all U.S. adults and eclipsing that of consumers with access to any number of video streaming services.
For decades, television creators had a pretty good way of finding out if their show was a hit: They could look at the Nielsen ratings, an imperfect, universal system for measuring viewership. Now that question is a lot more difficult to answer because, according to showrunners and producers, the platforms streaming their work share almost no data with them.
Listening bots can stream songs around 1,000 times a minute. Spotify and other streaming platforms aren’t losing any money from the practice — the bots that stream the music still have to use their service through paid subscriptions or through a free account that generates ad revenue. But streaming farms do effectively steal money away from artists with legitimate streaming numbers.
Whether you represent talent, or are promoting yourself, you need a great one sheet. Jaxsta’s latest feature takes the pain out of creating and maintaining one sheets by updating your official data automatically.

The Big Three record label, and specifically its Universal Music Group for Brands (UMGB) partnerships division, just recently announced the rollout of UMusic Media Network. This public launch arrives on the heels of a year-long beta, which execs say saw advertiser “content achieve millions of views from music fans globally, alongside artist content.”
For a long time, every Collective Management Organisation (‘CMO’) having their own set of systems and databases was the norm. It was as if being totally self-sufficient was a badge of honour, rather than the result of a properly considered assessment of the economics and risks. To any rational observer, we have lagged behind other industries in identifying opportunities to collaborate and share back-end infrastructure, but things have been changing in recent years.
People who binge a series tend to move onto the next show within a few weeks. Specifically, 71% of these types of searches happen within three weeks of a series premiere, compared with 43% of episodic searches and 56% of hybrid searches within the same time period.
The ‘black box’ of music streaming is undeniably the biggest problem affecting the global music industry today, as royalty payments to the tune of roughly £500million each year fail to reach the correct creditors. The root cause of the issue is data mismanagement and, with 60,000 tracks added to DSPs such as Spotify each day, the black hole will only continue to grow unless the proper tools and education are made available to the next generation of music creators.
