Soundcloud says that providing this access to Triller’s platform will “uniquely showcase and support emerging independent artists”.
The playlist has launched this week on Triller, and is also available to stream on SoundCloud.
The SoundCloud-curated playlist is located on Triller’s Music Discovery page and will be updated monthly with new tracks selected by music teams at Repost, SoundCloud’s creator services division.
In addition, all tracks are available for Triller creators to use in their video content within the app.
The new integration also allows artists to link their Triller and SoundCloud profiles and SoundCloud says that this will allow artists to “grow additional revenue” through its ‘fan-powered’ royalties system.
Elsewhere, Triller users will be able create their own ‘Power Edits’ of tracks to fit their video creation.
“emerging artists will now have the opportunity to develop a Triller fan base that is empowered to create, share and connect.”

“In front of a global audience, emerging artists will now have the opportunity to develop a Triller fan base that is empowered to create, share and connect.”
“We’re very excited to be working with Triller to connect these artists with a new audience.”
