SoundCloud has launched the fourth edition of its First on SoundCloud campaign, featuring Lil Tecca, Baby Rose, Na-kel and Ms Nina.
A new exclusive artist spotlight will be released every two weeks over the two-month long campaign.
The artists’ stories will be told through a combination of short videos, curated playlists and original photography that will be promoted across the SoundCloud app, social media, creator micro-site, blog, newsletter and supported by paid media and partner marketing.
As with prior editions of the campaign, SoundCloud is offering all creators the opportunity to upload and be heard as part of ‘First on SoundCloud’.
Starting today, artists can upload an original track to SoundCloud and tag it #SCFIRST for a chance to be promoted across the SoundCloud community.
Tracks uploaded with #SCFIRST will be randomly selected to be included in the First on SoundCloud playlist and promoted on SoundCloud’s social feeds, newsletter, and blog to millions of followers.
Additionally, tracks tagged with #SCFIRST will be be fast tracked for SoundCloud Premier consideration.
