Published on July 29, 2021

BeatStars, in partnership with Sony Music Publishing, announced the official launch of BeatStars Publishing, expanding its availability to its entire community of creators worldwide.

BeatStars and Sony Music Publishing, the world’s No. 1 global music publisher, joined forces in March 2020 with the mission to provide publishing services to the BeatStars community of over two million songwriters, producers, engineers, and artists worldwide. BeatStars Publishing was first introduced in 2020 as a service for select members.

“BeatStars has always believed that the tools of the music industry should be accessible to all creators,” said BeatStars CEO Abe Batshon. “Allowing artists, songwriters and producers to remain independent through our self-service publishing portal is ensuring the power always remains in the creator’s hands. This belief is the driving force behind BeatStars, and we’re thrilled to come together with Sony Music Publishing to support millions of creators from all over the world.”

“BeatStars has helped foster an important community of independent creators who are choosing their own path, and I am very grateful for the opportunity to extend our relationship,” said Sony Music Publishing Chairman & CEO Jon Platt. “With BeatStars Publishing, we are leaning into the independent creator process with new opportunities for songwriters and producers making great music through the platform.”

BeatStars Publishing offers key administrative services on behalf of its creators, including copyright registration, income data and tracking analysis, and global royalty collection and distribution. BeatStars Publishing also works with Sony’s major music labels such as Columbia, Epic, and RCA to offer exclusive placement opportunities to its members, helping to place original songs and beats in tracks recorded by Sony Music artists.

“BeatStars has successfully created a new lane, fostering the collective talent of emerging songwriters and producers online, and we look forward to furthering this effort with Sony Music Publishing’s industry-leading services,” Abe shared.

Since its initial launch, BeatStars Publishing has represented ground-breaking producers involved in chart-topping songs including “Calling My Phone” and “Leaked” by Lil Tjay; “Whoopty” by CJ; “Goin’ Baby” by Da Baby; “Demeanor” by Pop Smoke (Ft. Dua Lipa); “Star Shopping” by Lil Peep; “Count Me Out” and “Love Me” by Lil Tecca; “Stuck in the Middle” by Tai Verdes; and “Fine Apple” by Nic D. BeatStars Publishing is available free for its premium members with 80/20 splits in favor of its members and under one-year terms. Interested members can join and learn more at
