MetroLyrics Becomes Most-Trafficked Lyrics Site

  • July 3, 2008
MetroLeap Media announced that its flagship site, MetroLyrics (www.metrolyrics.com), has become the most-trafficked lyrics site in the world. With more than 22 million unique users per month--up from 14 million in December 2007--the site has jumped from the number three spot to number one in just six months and is now also among the fastest-growing sites on the Internet in many countries, including the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and Australia.

MetroLyrics also has a daily traffic rank among the top 500 sites according to the global Alexa rating, and now claims the number nine Internet property in the entertainment-music category based on total U.S. unique visitors (comScore Media Metrix, All Locations, May 2008).

In April, MetroLyrics announced an agreement with Gracenote to adopt Gracenote's lyrics service, making MetroLyrics the first and only existing lyrics site to provide its users with the largest database of licensed, complete and accurate song lyrics in the world. Through the agreement, MetroLyrics replaced lyrics submitted by the community with Gracenote's authorized lyrics to ensure users that artists, songwriters and music publishers are being properly compensated for the use of their copyrighted work. MetroLyrics users are still able to submit lyrics to the site, but they are now put through an accelerated clearance process.
