Hey, i'm being told I don't qualify for SoundCloud premier monetization when i try and sign up. Can you advise why this is? Some of my friends run much smaller record labels than mine and have been able to sign up successfully.
What are the requirements? Bare in mind i've already successfully monetised some tracks through the 3rd party repost network. I would of thought I would of been a good candidate to do this through soundcloud as I own the rights to everything I upload.

Hey there! In order to qualify for SoundCloud Premier you must be an independent creator and a Pro or Pro Unlimited subscriber. We’re starting out by inviting creators with 5,000 plays in the past month (from SoundCloud monetized countries: US, UK, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, The Netherlands, New Zealand), then scaling over time to as many creators as possible. So we recommend you keep creating and promoting your original content, and engaging with your fans in the process. Keep in mind that you cannot have any copyright strikes tied to your account if you want to be eligible for Premier. You’ll receive an email and in-product notification once you’re in.
Stay tuned for more details as we continue to expand!
