Music industry leaders have looked to V2Solutions for over a decade,

More than any other industry, Music has experienced an ongoing series of challenges brought about by the rise of digital media. Changes in consumer preferences have led to exciting new business models, with the overall industry now seeing notable growth.

As a pioneering force in creating metadata-rich music databases, V2Solutions has worked in partnership with industry leaders throughout this evolution, helping them leverage their media assets in innovative ways. Where the advent of global audiences, cutting-edge devices, and an array of platforms have stymied some companies, V2Solutions has ensured; and our clients remain fully enabled to benefit from this growth—not be held back by it.

The music industry was the first media sector to realize the importance of metadata. With lyrics, track listings, liner notes, and an array of artist and album information available, consumers immediately embraced search as a means of discovery.

V2Solutions has a level of experience in this area second to none. We've processed many millions of metadata entries across countless categories. Tracks, Lyrics, Cover Art, and Profiles are just a sampling of categories in which we've populated more than a million entries per category. For one provider alone, this involved the aggregation and strengthening of digital lyrics covering over 60 years of music in multiple languages.
