With over 180 million active U.S. users per month and weekly playlists, these videos make it easy for you to share with fans and can help you get discovered. And when YouTube pays you, we’ll put 80% of your money directly into your TuneCore account.

How long does it take to get music on YouTube Music?

We make sure that your releases get out to your fan base as quickly as possible. It will take us about one day to approve your release. Then you can expect to find your releases on YouTube Music after about one to two weeks.

How often does YouTube Music pay out?

Though TuneCore gets you your digital sales and streaming revenue as soon as possible, we still have to wait for YouTube Music. There is typically a two-month delay on streaming and download revenue earnings. So, if you put your music on YouTube Music in January, you’ll see your first payments in March.

Can anyone put their music on YouTube Music?

Concerned that your songs won't qualify for distribution using TuneCore? Don’t worry. Any artist can upload their music through TuneCore, so long as you follow our Style Guide on release information and have your songs in the preferred format.
