View Creator Music data

Creator Music is now available to U.S. creators in the YouTube Partner Program (YPP). Expansion to YPP creators outside of the U.S. is pending.

There are a few different reports you can download to understand how your content is performing on Creator Music. These reports are available for Music Label and Music Publisher partners:

  • License fee revenue reports: Summary and Transactional

  1. Sign in to Studio Content Manager.
  2. From the left menu, select Reports .
  3. At the top of the page, click Financial reports.
