Incorrect artist mapping is a common issue that happens across the digital services and for all distributors. If you share an artist name with other artists, it's possible your release could be incorrectly mapped to another artist's page or even a brand new artist page. If you notice your release is on the wrong page on Apple Music/iTunes we can help get your release moved to the correct page for you.
Note: You can map your releases on iTunes/Apple Music during the upload process by adding your Apple Artist ID to your product on step 3 of the Uploader. If you cannot find your Artist ID in the Mapping Tool in the Uploader, please note it in the ‘Comments and T&Cs’ section on the final step of the Uploader.
If your products are appearing on the wrong artist page on Apple Music, please reach out to us via the Contact Us page on your Portal and send the following information:
- UPC of the release(s)
- Link to the wrong artist page
- Link to the correct artist page. If this is your first release, please just let us know you'll need a new page.
- Affected Artist Name (with proper casing and spelling)
Important: The name on the correct artist page must match the artist name we delivered in the metadata of your release or we will not be able to help move the release.
Once we have this information, we'll get in touch with Apple to amend your release's mapping. You should see your release moved to the correct page within 5 working days.
Note: Artist mapping issues do not affect your streaming data or royalties payments.
