Melokid Advance Initiative
Through the Melokid Advance Initiative, you may qualify to access your future streaming royalties, providing vital support for the next phase in your music career.

Unlock the opportunity to get advances on your future revenue
Who is eligible for pre-selection? To qualify for pre-selection, you must have earned a minimum of 999€ in the past 12 months. Your advance amounts are always tailored to your historical earnings to ensure affordability. Qualification for an advance is based on your sales history and sales projections through Melokid's digital distribution. Meeting these criteria does not guarantee advance approval. Request an advance to find out if you are eligible.
We deduct the advance amount from your incoming sales revenue before it's credited to your account. As soon as your advance is fully repaid, your sales will continue to accumulate. Your advance will be repaid using revenue generated from streams, downloads, and YouTube Content ID.
Managing Music Removal and Sales Reports
While you have an outstanding balance from your advance, you won't be able to remove any releases from your account. You will continue to receive sales reports, but your account's balance history will show payments made toward your advance.
