Triller Partners With the Recording Academy® to Showcase Their Social Music Platform to Fans and Artists at the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards®
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 21, 2020--
MUSIC MADE SOCIAL. Triller, the fastest growing music social app, has announced a partnership with the Recording Academy® for the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards®.
To coincide with the GRAMMY Awards’® “Unexpect Everything” campaign, Triller will be activating throughout GRAMMY week, and will host an official GRAMMY Week kick-off party at the West Hollywood Edition on Tuesday, January 21, showcasing top talent including French Montana, Ally Brooke, Tinashe, Gashi, Mozzy, and Seven. Triller will connect its 75 million plus users and 27 million monthly active users directly with the GRAMMYs through exclusive artist content, unique behind-the-scenes footage and hashtag challenges, allowing fans to participate even further on the platform.
Additionally, Triller will launch the official GRAMMY’s channel with GRAMMY-nominated artists and performers taking over the platform, including tapping Alicia Keys for exclusive digital content takeovers. Alicia Keys launched her official Triller channel around her new song release “Underdog” just last week.
Triller is the first-ever social streaming music platform to offer users the ability to stream artists’ songs directly through the app, which correlates to direct payouts to artists via a first-of-its-kind integration with DSP’s, labels, and artists.
Triller will also be participating in various GRAMMY events, including the Los Angeles Chapter Nominee Celebration, MusiCares® Person of The Year and the GRAMMY U event at Village Studios.
Bobby Sarnevesht, Chairman of Triller and partner of Proxima Media, states, “Triller is focused on creating an ecosystem which benefits all parties, the artists, and the labels while delivering a one-of-a-kind experience to its users.… the Recording Academy partnership further deepens our commitment to the music industry and artists, and we are looking forward to using this platform to help complete that ecosystem.”
“Music is at the core of what Triller is building with their audience engagement, and their artist features paired with AI make them the perfect partner to enhance the experience of both music creators and fans during GRAMMY Week,” said Lisa Farris, Recording Academy Chief Digital Officer. “We’re excited to see how artists leverage the platform to share the celebration via exclusive content in real time.”
