Locked Lyrics - Why can't I edit the lyrics in a song where I am a featured artist?
You may find that when you want to curate a song, you cannot edit the lyrics because there is a Lock icon next to the Lyrics tab.
Locked Lyrics for Featured songs
There’s an important update regarding the editing process for songs with featured artists.
In the past, you've had the flexibility to edit the lyrics of your collaborative songs directly.
However, to ensure the integrity of the work and the rights of all artists involved, direct lyric edits to songs with featured artists are now restricted. This change is designed to protect the creative contributions of both the primary and featured performers.
What if I see the lyrics are locked in one of my songs that is not a featuring?
If you are adding the lyrics to a song which is not a featuring, and you are using your verified artist account on Musixmatch Pro, you should not see the Lock icon next to the Lyrics tab.
In this case, we would recommend you to contact us, and we will help you understand what is the root cause of the issue.
