From the mouth of the horse: "Wikidata is a free knowledge base that can be read and edited by humans and machines alike. It is for data what Wikimedia Commons is for media files: it centralizes access to and management of structured data, such as interwiki references and statistical information. Wikidata contains data in every language supported by the MediaWiki software." [1]

The template Authority Control on the English Wikipedia will automatically include a link to MusicBrainz.
