More information about some channels:
In order for artists to have their lyrics on Spotify, they need to add their repertoire to MusixMatch.
In addition, Musixmatch has launched a new service Musixmatch for Music Creators, where artists and/or labels can sign up to upload and sync their lyrics.
Also, everyone can create an account on Genius and start transcribing lyrics and adding new songs and lyrics. However once this is done, does not mean it will be updated in Spotify. Genius + Spotify integration is solely handled by the Genius in-house team, which picks out songs based on popularity, brand collaborations, and the tastes of our content team. If you think an artist might qualify for the Spotify integration, please send a message to streetlights.
If a song does not currently have lyrics available, you will see “Lyrics aren't available for this song”. Facebook Rights Manager team is working diligently to add new lyrics every day. Lyrics are being compiled and delivered to the channel by their lyric partner MusixMatch.
So, if you want to ensure that your lyrics are available in Stories you must register them to their lyric partner MusixMatch. Anyone can sing up and add lyrics to their song!
