{{Official style}}
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 "featuring" or "feat." precedes their name(s).
== Guideline ==
At the recording and release group level:
# 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 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.''
The following examples show how to turn a track/artist pair into a track name and artist credit.
