Epidemic Sound Collaborates with TikTok’s Commercial Music Library to Expand Its Artist Impact Program

Impact Program

TikTok has established the Artist Impact Program by signing multiple distribution partnerships inside the Commercial Music Library, which contains over 1 million rights-cleared tracks and sounds sourced from a large network of partnerships.

Ciara, Akon, and INJI are among the notable artists in the Artist Impact Program, and TikTok notes that many artists who began on TikTok have been able to monetize their music through the CML, build music careers, land record deals, and gain worldwide fans and audiences, on TikTok and beyond.

TikTok launched the Commercial Music collection (CML), a pre-cleared worldwide music collection, a few years ago to enable marketers discover music to soundtrack their TikTok content. The Artist Impact Program adds more music from international musicians to the platform and expands chances for artists and companies to connect, allowing brands to use the music and artists to monetize their music on TikTok by allowing businesses to use it in their content.

Distribution partnerships include:

411 Music Group, Amuse Inc., Believe, Blowout Inc, Create Music Group, DistroKid, Downtown Artist & Label Services, Epidemic Sound, Falcon Music, Fuse Adventures in Audio, Heavy Duty, JK Records, Mound Media Inc., Music & New Co., Ltd., PT Musica, Score a Score, Songtradr, Stem Disintermedia, SoundOn, Sub Pop, Thematic Music, Two AM Music Global, and Vydia.
