Just uploaded my first track, and its a collaboration with another user. How do I make his name appear above the title like other collabs I saw on the site? Couldn't find the answer.

Hi there,

Hmm, it is not possible to choose a custom artist name for collaborations - I would imaging that other users have included a collaboration user name by simply adding it to the track title.

If in doubt, can you send over an example track where you've seen this so we can take a look?
Here is an example. How do I tag collaborating artists like this with@name format?

Hi there,

So, yeah, this user has added "Dillon Francis & NGHTMRE - " to the track title. In order to mention another SoundCloud user, please add the ending of their SoundCloud URL, i.e. what's after soundcloud.com/ behind the @. For instance, in order to tag you, I'd use@ballenrecords.

Cheers

@Mathis thank you so much for this information. I have been trying to tag my vocalists in the track we are about to release 9/29 but i cant get here name to show up. She just has a basic account with a slew of numbers as here URL, could this be preventing it ?
