Song Lyrics: Why Musicians Should Share Them




Your lyrics are the heart and soul of your music, they’re important for creating a personal connection with your fans.

That’s why making your lyrics accessible to fans is so important, especially on platforms where people listen to your music such as Mdundo.


Why do fans need you to post your lyrics?

One of the things that makes me love a song even more is the words contained in the lyrics. Some fans want to know what you are saying, while others want to sing along while driving or even during karaoke.

Website lyrics such as AZLyrics.com have 77 million visitors a month. This goes to show that fans need your lyrics.


What are the other benefits of posting your lyrics?

If posting for your fans isn’t reason enough, then there are more reasons why you should post your lyrics online.

  • Accurate lyrics: Websites have realized the importance of lyrics. Just look at how much traffic it creates (AZLyrics.com). If your lyrics are nowhere to be found, they will hire someone to listen and write what you are saying. Chances of getting words wrong are high. Post your lyrics to avoid this in accuracy.

  • Posting lyrics is content for your social media and website which in turn increases your traffic and SEO for your website

  • You can use lyrics to create interactive sessions with fans. Activities such lyric remix competition, fill in the gap games can be a very good idea.
