Apple Music and the lyric database Genius announced that from today, Apple Music will receive the lyrics data resources of the Genius platform, and the Genius app will also join a new embedded Apple Music player, subscribed to Apple Music using the Genius website account. Players will be able to play Apple Music songs directly on the Genius app page.


Genius is the world's largest collection of lyrics and a platform for sharing popular music knowledge. It uses Wikipedia-like editing mechanisms, and artists and their fans can interpret the lyrics as they wish, including text, links, photos and videos, and others. Some of the users posted, and some may originate from the artist himself. They can be created and edited exploratoryly as part of a “global knowledge”.

Genius has launched an app on iOS, where you can see how it tells you the wonders and beauty behind the song through the lyrics. You will see basic information about a song, background, and the source of inspiration for the lyrics. In addition to the complete lyrics (including the introduction, the lyrics of the interlude), some provide new and old versions, showing the entire author's thought process; the extended meaning of the lyrics, or more about the author And the fun of others, let you really understand the subtleties of this song.

To use the Apple Music player on Genius, you need to search for the song you want to listen to, then click “Connect Account” when the player pops up. This process requires the user to allow Genius to access Apple Music's media library, and when the user accepts it, they can use the service on web pages as well as on iOS devices.


Apple Music added the lyrics display function after the launch of iOS 10. Users can view the lyrics by clicking the ellipsis icon at the bottom right of the player, but the experience has not been satisfactory, and many songs have no lyrics. After working with Genius, Apple Music's lyrics feature will be enhanced. “It’s a great experience to read the lyrics and notes on Genius when you listen to songs on Apple Music,” said Genius’s chief strategy officer, Mid Gross, and “Ben Gross,” I am honored to turn Apple Music into our official music player, and I am very happy to bring Genius lyrics to this platform. ”

It is not clear when Genius's lyrics library can be officially added to Apple Music. In addition, Genius is mainly the world of English songs. There are very few Chinese songs in Qukuli. Fortunately, Genius's website provides the function of adding songs. Chinese songs will become more and more popular in the future, which will bring rich content to Apple Music Chinese lyrics.
