Claim Your Account

Artists and artist managers can request access to Apple Music for Artists by claiming their page.

To claim your page, you'll first need to verify your identity or relationship to the artist. It helps to provide as much information as possible. Verification to the artist's social media and distributor accounts (Twitter, Facebook, TuneCore, etc.) helps us quickly review your application. The Notes section of your application is available to include additional information such as a personal website and other media accounts.

Label Representatives

Artists and artist managers with Administrator access are responsible for reviewing additional access requests from responsible label representatives and others.

If you are a label representative looking to join an artist's Apple Music for Artists profile, work directly with your artist to have your request reviewed or to be added as a user. If no artist or artist manager administrator actions your request for 30 days, your request will expire.
