Who can monetize with SoundCloud Premier?
I t signified the first steps towards monetizing content on the platform, for which a new invite-only account type was introduced: Premier. Besides monetization, these accounts offer a variety of exclusive features such as visual banners, special artwork on tracks and the ability to geographically restrict content. I have noticed that SoundCloud Premier and the accounts with visual profiles are still a big mystery to the majority of users, hence dedicating a post to it. These tensions lead to lawsuit threats by the major labels, which later developed into potential investment negotiations, where the majors were incentivized to license content to the platform in exchange for an equity stake.
