#REDIRECT [[Style/Artist_Credits#Featured_artists]]
This guideline applies to cases in which one or more artists are ''featured'' on a track by another artist, but not equally as they would be in a [[rt:75c09861-6857-4ec0-9729-84eefde7fc86|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 “featuring” or “feat.” precedes their name(s).
== Guideline ==
# Fill out the artist credits for the primary artist(s) in the usual manner.
# Add a join phrase of “ feat. ” (note the surrounding spaces).
# Add the first featured artist.
# Add additional featured artists, each separated by “, ” (note the trailing space) and the final one separated by “ & ” (note the surrounding spaces).
# 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.
The use of artist credits has the advantage that the recording is listed under all credited artists, not just the primary ones. In example three below, this makes the recording appear under all seven artists rather than just the one.
* 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, remixers, compilers and songwriters can also be the main artists of a release; if they are, just enter them as such.''
* Featured artists credited on the packaging using a word other than "featuring" (or an abbreviation of it) should not be standardized and should be entered as is. This goes for "with" and foreign equivalents of the word.
The following examples show how to turn a track/artist pair into a track name and artist credit.
