Hi there!

I've yet had the problem several times that when adding a new artist I don't know which country I should pick if the artists have multiple citizenships?

Let's take Camila Cabello as an example:
She was born in Cuba which is the country mentioned on her LT-profile. But at the age of 11 she moved to the USA which was a couple of years before she actively worked on music. Her musical career started and is still based in the USA; Camila mainly sings in English.

Now my question: Should we not better pick the country where the artists' main music production is situated (which generally is in the country where they currently live, too) instead of selecting their birthplace (to which they might not even have any connections anymore)?

Thanks in advance! Kind regards, Simon

I would advise you to list the country in which the artist has built their music career rather than their birth nation. It's more relevant to the matter at hand (i.e., the lyrics).

Yes, that's what I thought, too, but many users select the birthplace while many others choose the country of their music basis. So I didn't want to contribute to this chaos, that's why I asked. Wink smile

I only add their native (birth) country, but there are no rules on that. So you can also go with the place where they rose to fame. It's tricky because in cases of artists with multi-citizenships, we always refer to them as 'Brazilian-born American singer' (example)...
