My title appears on another artist profile, discover the artist mapping.

The artist mapping to show your title on the right artist profile.


What is it?

In short, artist mapping is the referencing of your artist page on digital platforms.
More precisely the link between your releases (single, EP, albums) and your artist pages on the different streaming services.

Concrete case of a problem related to artist mapping : 

First of all, you have already distributed a single, an EP or an album on streaming platforms with Wiseband or another distributor.
It turns out that you are not the only artist with the same name.
And indeed, on the day of your release you realize that your single/EP/Album is attached to another artist profile.

To avoid this problem at all costs, think “artist mapping”:

A/ Make sure you fill in your existing Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music artist pages beforehand. You can do this using the form provided when you fill in your metadata for the item. This way we can check for duplicates before your release.  

To get the links to your artist pages: 

On Spotify:

If in doubt about Spotify you can apply directly here.

On Deezer : 
1.

2.

On Apple Music: 

B/ To avoid handling this, we can advise you on the choice of a new name for your project, a unique name with which you can be easily identified.

C/ If you face any issue, or if a third party artist appears on your profile. Please contact us at digital@wiseband.com, the problem will be solved within 48-72h. 

WARNING ! 

For albums featuring, check in advance if each artist already has a page, if so, it will be necessary to inform the pages of the two artists if they have previous releases. 
This step should be part of your preparation for the release. 

All in all, the simplest thing to do is to choose a unique and easily identifiable artist name.  
No need to do like the unpronounceable techno artist SHXCXCHCXSH. But a little research on the platforms can quickly solve the problem!

Up to your imagination 😉
