Musixmatch in a nutshell?
Lyrics is one of the top searched terms on Google, with billions of people every month trying to find the words to their music. Musixmatch is the most popular lyrics destination on mobile and connected devices with more than 30 million people using it worldwide to discover lyrics.
Since Musixmatch launched in early 2010, we have changed consumer behaviour by allowing users to scan their music library and streaming playlist to retrieve lyrics via Musixmatch apps.
Our vision was to build the world’s largest lyrics catalog and have it licensed with Top Music Publishers like Sony/ATV, Warner Chappell, Universal Music Publishing Group, EMI Publishing, BMGChrysalis, Kobalt Publishing, and Harry Fox Agency for worldwide distribution.
Musixmatch also provides an Official Lyrics API (application program interface), empowering 3rd party companies and apps with Musixmatch’s lyrics catalog to step into the music market.
