SoundCloud introduces artist review for the first time!
The community has got used to the orange check marks that have long been as official as anyone could get. In the future, the orange star will signal a SoundCloud Pro account and blue ticks will confirm defined actions.
The rollout has already started with verified artists, including Billie Eilish (look here), Wiz Khalifa and Trippie Redd. According to SoundCloud, these artists have been involved with the platform since day one of their careers.
In order to have your profile verified, your account must meet the following requirements:
- It represents a well-known and / or highly sought-after artist, collective, DJ, label, curator or podcaster
- It has to be the unique presence of an artist, collective, DJ, label, curator or podcaster
- A biography, a profile photo and at least one title must be uploaded
“We do this to help well-known artists stand out and maintain their authenticity,” explains SoundCloud, “and to help listeners identify these artists more easily.”
