Artist credits should generally follow the actual credit used on the release / track.

Special cases

Featured artists

See the featured artists guidelines.

Definite articles

If an artist name does not start with a definite article, but is credited with a definite article on a release, include the definite article in the artist credit. The exception to this is where a join phrase is used before the artist name - in this case, include the definite article in the join phrase.

Specific types of releases

Some types of releases, like classical, theatre or audiobook releases, have their own, more specific guidelines for artist credits. See Specific types of releases. These guidelines override this one.
