Recently we’ve entered into a partnership with YouTube Shorts where Indian artists and labels can not only get an access to Believe’s catalog on YouTube Shorts. As we are embracing the next generation of music creation, distribution, and consumption with YouTube Shorts, this is more than a collaboration; it is a strategic partnership. It is a great opportunity for artists and labels to work with us in a constantly evolving music industry. Our goal is to continue to support all artists and labels, at all stages of their career, at the local level by giving them the resources and tools they need to be successful.”

Shilpa Sharda – Director – Artists Services – Believe India commented, “We are proud to associate with artists across India as demand for music across all languages continue to grow. India has always had a unique music landscape and I am glad we are able to service local, independent artists with tools created specifically for keeping their global reach and local needs in mind.
