Genius brings music intelligence to the masses.

Genius brings music intelligence to the masses.

Genius is the world's biggest encyclopedia of music. From its foundation in lyrics, it has grown to become a leading brand in music, producing popular video series like VERIFIED and hosting career-spanning live conversations with the likes of Mariah Carey & T-Pain. Genius reaches 100+ million people monthly across the globe and has 5+ million YouTube subscribers. It continues to power the successful “Behind the Lyrics” integration on Spotify and drives a major lyrics integration on Apple Music.

Genius started as a platform for annotating clever rap lyrics—our original name was Rap Genius. Over the years, we’ve expanded our mission to include more than hip-hop, and more than just lyrics. Every song has a story that needs to be told, and the biggest names in music—including Travis Scott, Billie Eilish, and Ariana Grande—come to Genius to give the world insight into their art.
