What is commercial music?

Commercial music is any song or music track that’s been created with the potential of generating revenue. It’s been made to be marketed to the public across radio, streaming, social media, concerts, downloads and sales.

Why Commercial?

Why not? You hear commercial music on TV all the time but it’s impossible to find somewhere to simply license a song from a label or from the charts for online video without going through a lengthy negotiation and contract process.

Well, today, for an entire generation - online IS tv! In fact, YouTube reaches more 18-49 year olds in the US than any single TV network! That’s exposure you just can’t ignore. And Lickd solves the licensing problem for them. Commercial music is the soundtrack to all our lives and we deserve to be able to hear it in our content. Grab your favorite track from the billboard Hot 100 and slot it right into your newest video, whether it’s on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and more.

Now’s your chance to really stand out from the crowd, grab the attention of your audience and bring new eyeballs to your content. License tracks from the biggest artists in the world, like XXXTentacion, Mabel or Disclosure.

The days of boring music are over.
