With the music ready, any artist can count on ONErpm. Our approval team helps artists and labels get their albums and singles adapted to the standards of each platform. If an album does not comply with these rules, the same team at ONErpm may request changes so that the distribution can be made.


Here are the main rules:

  • The title that appears on the cover of your Album / Single / EP must be the same used in the registration of the album. Do not abbreviate your album title on the cover.
  • When you display an artist name on the album cover, that name (s) must necessarily be entered in the album or track registration as artists. Do not abbreviate the artists’ names on the cover.
  • Do not use third party images, names, samples or beats without proper authorization.
  • Each album must have its own cover. It is not allowed to use the same image to cover different albums. If this is the case, just modify the cover with the new image and album name.
  • The composers of your album must be registered individually, names of bands, groups or pairs registered as a composer are not allowed.
  • If you are recording a cover, create 100% of the beat of the song, never use playbacks or beats from the original recordings to re-record a cover.
