Musixmatch Brings Largest Lyrics Database to Rosetta Stone

March 26, 2012

Musixmatch tracks a lot of lyrics — that’s one reason why The Echo Nest enthusiastically welcomes Musixmatch onto our Project Rosetta Stone platform.

Project Rosetta Stone brings the unique ability to help music services “talk” to one another to the music and technology industries, by lining up the songs on one service with the songs on another. In the case of Musixmatch, that means developers on all platforms can pop lyrics into their apps quickly and easily.

Musixmatch’s integration into Project Rosetta Stone could (and probably will) lead to apps that figure out what song is playing to display lyrics on smartphones; integrate lyrics into Rdio’s social playlists; or combine lyric visualizers with music itself.

Musixmatch’s lyrics database includes over 5.9 legally-licensed million lyrics from over 500,000 artists. Developers who wish to add lyrics to their apps quickly and easily using Musixmatch and Project Rosetta Stone can find additional resources here.

Welcome aboard, Musixmatch!
