Warner Music Is Now Available On TikTok
TikTok has been in talks with music labels for months, trying to resolve a disagreement about how much they should pay for music usage. Negotiations between TikTok and major music labels such as Warner, Universal, and Sony have hit a roadblock due to the labels’ demands for a greater share of the platform’s ad revenue and increased royalties for their music rights.
TikTok said in the announcement: “As part of the deal, Warner Music Group and TikTok will find new ways to harness TikTok’s revenue generation and promotional capabilities, as well as a wealth of insights. In addition, artists and songwriters will have access to new ways of working with TikTok’s vibrant brand partners, as well as to new fandom development and monetization features, like merchandise, ticketing, and digital goods and services, among other opportunities. Further, the deal will see the joint development of additional and alternative economic models.”.
TikTok has emerged as a prominent platform for promoting music, and many record labels are now strategically aligning their artists’ tracks with the ever-changing trends on TikTok. This agreement brings great news.
