Why is Shazam data not available for my track?
Millions of Shazam tracks are already in our database, and we add new ones every day. To make it short, we add a track automatically as soon as we see it in one of the 1500+ Shazam charts we record.
If Shazam provides the ISRC code for those tracks, they will be matched automatically with the right track in our system.
There could be 2 reasons why the Shazam data does not appear for your track, but both issues have a solution:
- The ISRC code given by Shazam is not the one you expect, so the Shazam data is linked to an other track in our system. This happens for example when a same track has a different ISRC code on Spotify and Apple Music. The workaround is easy: copy/paste the Shazam track link in our search and you will be directed to the right page.
- The Shazam track is not yet in our system. To fix this will require a small operation that has to be done only once: go on the Track page on the Shazam tab, click the button 'Add a shazam song' and then copy/paste the Shazam track link. If the ISRC code matches, the Shazam track will be linked within a few seconds. It may then take a few hours before we start collecting data, which will happen once a day.
