  • This advanced relationship represents the "producer" credit for a work, when it is used to indicate the person who created the beat. This is fairly common in R&B and hip hop music, and fairly uncommon anywhere else.
  • Do not infer attributes.
Though it may seem logical that, if a work has two or more producers, they are co-producers, this is incorrect. Producer, Additional Producer, Associate Producer, Co-producer, and Executive Producer are five distinct job titles. If a release has two people credited as "Producer", then they each held the Producer title, not the Co-producer title.
