It's been bugging me for a while now, but how and where should songs by two different artists be added? For example, a song is a collaboration between two artists where one artist isn't just featuring the other? Thank you.

Are they under one name then? I've added many collaborations between artists who work under one name, we allow that.

Hey,

It really depends on whether they are having just one song together, or a whole album - as far as I know, we allow both to be added in the artist field only if they've collaborated together for some time, thus are known as a duet. Example - http://lyricstranslate.com/en/nico-vinz-lyrics.html

If, however, everyone is having their own career and they got together to do that one/two/three song/s, then only one of them should be the "main" artist, the other one should be added as a featuring - it doesn't really matter in which order, as long as they are there (although I personally prefer putting the one that has its name first in the video as a main artist, I think it makes the search easier, but it may be just me). Example - http://lyricstranslate.com/en/zayn-i-dont-wanna-live-forever-fifty-shade...

Hope that helps!

I meant only if they got together for one song, but have their own respective solo careers - like the Zayn and Taylor song. I thought there was maybe an option to put two "main" artists (not one as a featuring one), but I understand now.

Thanks!
