Massive resources empower musicians and original music
Thanks to the progress of the platform, songs from Tencent Musician Akini Jing’s album “Endless Farewell” were recommended by the global popular music platform, and it was also chosen as the monthly pick by Pitchfork, a worldwide authority in music reviews, as the report noted. Works from musicians including Liu Shuang and Georgina Qian were listed in Spatial Audio on Apple Music. “Mosaïque”, a collaborative cross-border album launched by TME and the Embassy of France in China, was produced by 21 emerging artists from China and France. It was broadly praised upon release as both the album and the single “Attends encore un peu” were promoted by the global well-known music platform.
TME’s proprietary service easily connects China’s music to global fans
In April 2022, TME further ramped up its overseas promotions and distribution capabilities by introducing a new service, “One-Click For All”, on its Tencent Musician Platform. The new service enables musicians to easily distribute musical works to over 150 popular platforms that cover audiences in more than 200 countries and regions. TME has also provided musicians with International Standard Recording Code (ISRC) for free to improve catalog management and copyright protection and has brought musicians with income equal to up to 70% of that generated from overseas markets.
The service provides more opportunities for musicians to communicate with global fans. It also advances China’s creation of original music and promotes cultural exchange. The report indicates that the music works distributed by TME have achieved over 500 million streams on YouTube and more than 1 million streams on Facebook, Spotify, and UMA. Musicians’ works were favored by global fans and at the same time, they received attention and increased their popularity across the globe.
