ORDER OF SONGS ON AN ARTIST'S PROFILE.

If more than one song is uploaded in a single Song Upload transaction, the smallest of those songs files will appear first on an artist's profile. In order to ensure the song order an artist prefers, each song needs to be uploaded individually. The first song uploaded will be at the top of the artist's profile, and the other songs will appear below it as they are uploaded.

WHY ARE THERE TWO GENRE FIELDS ON THE UPLOAD SONG SCREEN?

The first genre field has a dropdown box with today's valid genre choices (it is a required field). The second genre field is open text where you can type in a genre not found on our dropdown box (this is not a required field). The second field helps us recognize any new genres not currently in our dropdown box.
