- Sign up for DistroKid and pay $20 for their ‘Musician’ subscription https://distrokid.com
- Upload a song (stolen or not, doesn’t concern me).
- Wait for it to clear through all platforms (3 days - 1 week).
- Once it’s cleared, go to the Goodies tab, and go down to ‘Special Access’.
- Click Spotify for Artists, and then connect your Spotify account to your artist profile.
- Enjoy. You may edit your artist profile to your liking, and this same thing can be done with a YouTube artist verification (music icon next to your name).
