Miles Davis, Shelly Peiken and more will get profiles as part of the campaign.
Back in February, Spotify announced the launch of new songwriter pages and "Written By" playlists to highlight the behind-the-scenes work of music's biggest hitmakers, from Meghan Trainor to Missy Elliott and Justin Tranter. Now, the streamer says it is adding hundreds more of those pages and playlists.
The list of additional songwriters to be profiled spans the full genre spectrum, including icons like Miles Davis among contemporary writers like Wheezy Beats (Young Thug, Future, Drake), Shelly Peiken (Christina Aguilera, Bebe Rexha, Jessie J) and Alizzz (Piso 21, Rosalía). While the feature is still in beta, users can begin accessing songwriter pages by right-clicking on a track, tapping "Song Credits." The names of songwriters with pages will be clickable.
In recent years, Spotify has been taking steps to support songwriters on the platform. Since Spotify began displaying song credits in 2018, head of songwriter and publishing relations Jules Parker says that the platform has seen a 60% increase in how often labels and distributors credit songwriters on their new releases.
