A lot of people ask us why certain songs aren’t on Apple Music, and it’s a fair question! Here’s a look at the some of the factors that go into adding music to Apple Music.

1.Why are some songs not on Apple Music?
There could be several reasons why a song might not be available on Apple Music. The first and most likely reason is that the song simply isn’t available on the Music Store yet. Apple adds new songs to the store every week, so if you can’t find a particular song, it might just be that it hasn’t been added yet.
If a song is available on other music streaming services but not Apple Music, it could be due to licensing restrictions. For example, some artists may choose to make their music available only on paid subscription services like Apple Music, while others might make it available for free on ad-supported services like YouTube. It’s also possible that a song was once available on Apple Music but has since been removed due to licensing changes.
If you’re having trouble finding a specific song or album on Apple Music, you can search for it in the iTunes Store app instead. Just open the iTunes Store app, tap Search at the bottom of the screen, then type in the name of the artist, album, or song you’re looking for. If it’s available in the iTunes Store, you should be able to find and play it in the iTunes Store app even if it’s not available in Apple Music.
2.The difference between Apple Music and iTunes
Apple Music and iTunes are two different things. Apple Music is a streaming service that allows you to listen to millions of songs, build playlists, and more. iTunes, on the other hand, is a music store where you can purchase songs to download and listen to offline. Not all songs that you can buy on iTunes are available on Apple Music because the rights to the song may be owned by someone else (for example, if it’s a cover song or a song by a lesser-known artist). In some cases, the song may be available on Apple Music but not for purchase on iTunes.
3.How to get your music on Apple Music
If you’re an unsigned artist or a signed artist with an independent label, you can submit your music directly to Apple Music and iTunes for consideration. For more information about submitting your music, see these Apple Support articles:
• How to submit your music to Apple Music and iTunes
• Get your music on Apple Music
If you’re a signed artist with a major label, your label must deliver your music to Apple Music and iTunes. If you don’t see all of your music in the Apple Music app or iTunes Store, contact your label.
4.The benefits of having your music on Apple Music
When you have your music on Apple Music, you can reach a wide audience of potential listeners. Your music will be available on iTunes, which is one of the most popular online music stores, as well as on the Apple Music streaming service. This give you a lot of exposure and can help you build a following. Additionally, when you’re on Apple Music, you can take advantage of features likeConnect and Beats 1 Radio, which can help you promote your music and reach new fans.
5.The drawbacks of not having your music on Apple Music
If you’re an artist or record label that’s not on Apple Music, there are several potential drawbacks. Here are a few:
1)You’re missing out on exposure to millions of potential fans.
2)You’re not able to take advantage of features like streaming exclusives and pre-adds, which can help promote your music.
3)Your music is less likely to be discovered by new listeners because Apple Music’s algorithm includes features that favor music that’s already popular on the service.
4)You’re missing out on potential revenue from streams and downloads.
Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to make your music available on Apple Music is up to you. If you’re concerned about any of the potential drawbacks, weigh them against the potential benefits before making your decision.
6.How to make sure your music is on Apple Music
There are a few reasons why you might not see all of your music in Apple Music. The first, and most common reason is that the song or album is not available in Apple Music’s catalog. If you can’t find something in the Apple Music catalog, it might be due to one of the following reasons:
1. The song or album isn’t available in your country or region.
2. The song or album is no longer available on Apple Music.
3. The song or album was never available on Apple Music.
4. You’re signed in to the wrong country or region in iTunes or the App Store.
If you’re sure that the song or album should be available in your country or region, and it’s still not appearing in Apple Music, contact Apple Support.
Another reason why you might not see all of your music is if you have iCloud Music Library turned off on any of your devices. iCloud Music Library is a feature that keeps all of your music up-to-date across all of your devices, including your Mac, iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. To turn on iCloud Music Library:
1. On your Mac: Open iTunes > Preferences > General > Turn on iCloud Music Library.
2. On your iOS device: Go to Settings > Music > Turn on iCloud Music Library.”
7.The importance of having your music on Apple Music
As the owner of an independent record label, or an unsigned artist, you might be wondering why it’s so important to have your music on Apple Music. After all, Apple Music is just one of many streaming services available, and it’s certainly not the only way for your fans to listen to your music. So why should you go through the trouble of getting your music on Apple Music?
Here are 7 reasons why having your music on Apple Music is crucial to your success as an artist:
1.Apple Music is one of the most popular streaming services in the world
With over 60 million subscribers, Apple Music is one of the most popular streaming services in the world. That’s a lot of potential new listeners for your music!
2.Apple Music is available in over 100 countries
No matter where your fans are located, they’ll be able to listen to your music on Apple Music. That’s because Apple Music is available in over 100 countries around the world.
3.Apple Music offers a 3-month free trial period
When new users sign up for Apple Music, they get a 3-month free trial period during which they can listen to all the music they want without having to pay anything. After the free trial period ends, they can either continue listening with a paid subscription or stop using the service altogether. Either way, you’ll have had a chance to reach out to potential new fans and introduce them to your music.
4.Apple Music pays artists more than other streaming services
When it comes to streaming services, not all are created equal when it comes to how much they pay artists. In fact, some streaming services pay artists less than $0.01 per stream! On the other hand, Apple Music pays artists an average of $0.007 per stream, which is significantly more than other popular streaming services such as Spotify ($0.004 per stream) and Pandora ($0).
5.Your fans are probably already using Apple Music
If you’re wondering whether it’s worth getting your music on Apple Music, chances are that your fans are already using the service and would love to be able to listen to your songs on there. In fact, a recent survey found that apple users spend an average of $40 per month on digital entertainment—and that number is only going to increase as more and more people ditch traditional forms of entertainment such as cable TV in favor of streaming services like Apple Music.
6.You can use Apple Music Connect to connect with your fans
If you’re looking for a way to connect with your fans and give them an inside look at what goes into making your music, then consider using Apple Music Connect. With Connect, you can share photos, videos, behind-the-scenes footage, and even demos or unfinished songs with your fans—all from within theApple Musics app itself. Best of all? Connect is completely free and easy to use—simply log in with your existing iTunes account and start sharing! 7\.

8.What to do if your music isn’t on Apple Music
If you can’t find a song or album on Apple Music, it might have been removed for one of these reasons:
– The artist or their record label decided not to release the song or album on Apple Music.
– The song or album is temporarily unavailable because of licensing issues. For example, if a movie soundtrack is only being sold in certain countries, you might not see it in your country’s Apple Music store.
– The song or album was recently released and hasn’t been added to Apple Music yet.
– The song is part of an exclusive release that’s not yet available on Apple Music. For example, if an artist released an album exclusively on their website, you might not be able to find it in the Apple Music catalog.
If you can’t find something in the Apple Music catalog, try searching for it in the iTunes Store. If you still can’t find it, contact the artist or their record label.
9.How to get your music on iTunes
There are a number of ways to get your music on iTunes, but the most common and accessible method is through an aggregator. An aggregator is a company that will take your music and deliver it to digital stores like iTunes on your behalf. While there are many aggregators to choose from, we recommend using TuneCore. TuneCore is easy to use and has transparent pricing, which means you always know how much you’re paying and what you’re paying for.
The process of getting your music on iTunes with TuneCore is simple:
1)Create an account and sign up for a new artist release
