You may have noticed that the genre you’ve attributed to your release’s genre in the Backstage doesn’t match exactly the genre displayed in one or more Digital Music Services. This may happen because each DMS has their own list of genres, and therefore a matching is done between the genres we provide and their own.

To see how your release’s genre will be displayed in the DMS, please download the corresponding Genre Matching documents:

If you wish to get the Genre Matching document for another DMS or have any further questions about this subject, please contact your Labels & Artists Support team here.
