Who are the Lyrics Curators?
Lyrics Curators are the most passionate and active community members, selected on the merit of their contributions.
They have been spotted for the high quality of their transcribed lyrics, for the high commitment to the Musixmatch mission (build the world's largest lyrics catalogue), and for their interactions with other community members.
This includes providing feedback to other contributors, participating in Slack discussions, helping mentor new users, and praising great content.
You can spot them by looking for the curator label on their profile on the Musixmatch website.

Become a Lyrics Curator
Follow these steps to become a Lyrics Curator:
- Create an account (if you haven't already)
- Pass the Musixmatch Academy
- Unlock at least one of these badges: Scribbler, Metronome, or Adventurer.
- Once you've unlocked the badges, you will not immediately unlock the Curator test. You should continue to contribute lyrics on our website to unlock it. We'll then perform a quality check and in case of positive feedback, the Lyrics Test for becoming Curator will be sent to you. If you don't receive the email, continue contributing until you do.
- Take the Lyrics Test. We'll check the test within 5 days and aim to provide you with feedback within 14 days
Please note that any user found to be publishing/requesting the answers to the Curator test will be immediately downgraded and blocked from regaining their status in future.
Pending the result, we kindly invite you to:
- Be an active member of the Musixmatch Community Slack
- Contribute/assist on a daily/weekly basis
