#REDIRECT [[Style/Artist_Credits#Featured_artists]]
 
 
This guideline applies to cases in which one or more artists are ''featured'' on a recording or release group by another artist, but not equally as they would be in a [[Collaboration Relationship Type|collaboration]]. That is, they are given credit on the cover or track listing of a release by another artist in a manner which elevates their contribution above normal liner note credits. Often, the word "featured", "feat." or "featuring" proceeds their name(s).
 
 
 
== Guideline ==
 
 
 
# File the recording / release group under the normal primary artist.
 
# Append the name of the secondary artist(s) to the recording / release group title as follows:
 
#* "''Put Your Lights On (feat. Everlast)''"
 
# Add [[Advanced Relationships|Relationships]] of the appropriate [[:Category:Relationship Class|Relationship Class]] (usually [[:Category:Performance Relationship Class|Performance]]) to link to the featured artist(s') entries in MusicBrainz.
 
 
 
==Details==
 
 
 
* The recording / release group artist is the main artist a recording / release group is credited to. This means, the artist mentioned on the release cover (in most cases the front cover), package or any other labelled package like entity that describes the release (e.g. release page for online releases).
 
* Featured artists tend to be performers, but they can also be contributors to the technical production process (mixers, producers, record engineers, etc.), remixers and others. The different roles are explained in [[:Category:Compilation Relationship Class|Compilation Relationship Class]], [[:Category:Composition Relationship Class|Composition Relationship Class]], [[:Category:Production Relationship Class|Production Relationship Class]], [[:Category:Remix Relationship Class|Remix Relationship Class]]. ''Note, that composers are often the '''main''' artists of classical releases (see [[Classical Style Guide|ClassicalStyleGuide]]) and remixers or compilers can also be main artists if they fit into 1.''
 
* If a track features both "Foo" and "Bar", it should be entered as "... (feat. Foo & Bar)". For more than two: "... (feat. Foo, Bar, Baz ... & Quux)".
