If you're distributing your music to streaming services such as Apple Music and Spotify, your albums and singles will be delivered to YouTube Music automatically. With YouTube Music, they will create high-quality album art videos called "Art Tracks," which play audio while displaying an image of your album cover. These videos are available not only to YouTube Music subscribers but also as standard ad-supported content accessible on YouTube. YouTube will then be able to find every video that uses your music and when the video is found, an ad will be placed on that video. This will include content you have uploaded yourself as well as videos submitted from other users. As the artist, you will get a portion of the ad share revenue and those funds will be added to your CD Baby account balance. Requirements - You must have Youtube Music as part of your distribution to also take part in Youtube Monetization.

The service was first unveiled in November as Music Key, serving as a collaboration between YouTube and Google Play Music , and meant to succeed the former's own subscription service. Music Key offered ad-free playback of music videos from participating labels hosted on YouTube, as well as background and offline playback of music videos on mobile devices from within the YouTube app.
Here's basically what's happening: It's getting rid of YouTube Red and splitting that into new services. Customers who currently pay for YouTube Red will get the new YouTube Premium service at the same price they currently pay. The new plan still sounds confusing, so I'm going to break down what Google's doing here. YouTube Premium is Google's new paid all-encompassing ad-free service. The free version of YouTube, with ads, will live on. If you're looking to pay for one of these, YouTube Premium is the best bet since it offers the most bang for your buck. It includes music playlists, music videos, remixes and live versions of songs.
