Jaxsta Pro to Feature LyricFind UK & LyricFind Australia Charts


Jaxsta Limited (ASX: JXT), the world’s largest public-facing, dedicated database of official music credits, today announced that the Australian and U.K. lyric charts from the pioneer in licensed lyrics, LyricFind, will be available on Jaxsta Pro.

LyricFind U.K. and LyricFind Australia rank the top trending lyric searches of each respective territory through LyricFind’s syndication service. Using LyricFind’s API to track lyric usage in the U.K. and Australia, these two charts provide more valuable research tools to Jaxsta Pro users. They also add a new way for Jaxsta Pro members to measure the chart success of their music, whether they’re the main artist or the songwriter, as well as the chart movements of their peers and any other song they wish to research.

Due to Jaxsta’s deep official music credit data, users can click on each song in the LyricFind charts and discover all the metadata for those responsible for writing, performing and recording the song. This partnership confirms Jaxsta’s reputation as one of the go-to sources for chart results for artists and non-artists, and for music discovery.

Jacqui Louez Schoorl, Jaxsta CEO and Co-Founder, stated, “One of Jaxsta’s core tenets is that music discovery should be easy and accessible to all. Lyrics are undoubtedly one of the most popular searches, and so to bring LyricFind’s exceptional U.K. and Australian charts to Jaxsta Pro is a perfect fit.”

LyricFind’s Director of Marketing Catherine Fournier said, “Lyric searches reveal how listeners connect with songs on a deeper level, making these searches highly valuable data. We’ve spent over a decade creating useful tools based on this global data and we’re excited to bring these chart insights to Jaxsta Pro’s users.”

LyricFind’s charts often reflect social and cultural events, and are a window into the way in which society reacts to movements such as Black Lives Matter, during which lyrics for songs such as H.E.R.’s “I Can’t Breathe” and Alicia Keys’ “Perfect Way To Die’ charted in the U.K. Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home” charted at No. 1 in the U.K. during the pandemic, indicating a shift from office to remote work, while the Australian charts featured more thematic songs like Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry Be Happy,” “It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” by R.E.M., and “Mad World” by Tears for Fears. LyricFind also sees dramatic increases for lyric searches after the death of an artist, as fans flock to these catalogs as a way to honor and remember these artists. These particular lyric trends were prominent in March and April after the passing of Kenny Rogers and Bill Withers, in June following the death of English singer Vera Lynn, and in October following the loss of Eddie Van Halen.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the live music industry, Jaxsta Pro is currently free to help support the music community through this difficult period. In October, Jaxsta Pro surpassed 70,000 members.
