You can be penalized for using copywritten music without the consent of the copyright holder. Getting yourself into one of those battles is about as good as ending your career! After all, a lot of platforms take that seriously — and you can end up losing a lot of money because of it. That is why, before you even consider putting whatever catchy tune has caught your eye into your own content, you should learn how to contact YouTubers for permission to use their music!

An example method of doing this is through InflueNex. InflueNex has the largest database of YouTube influencers available on its databanks — which makes it the perfect place to find YouTube music influencers, as well as the perfect place to reach out to said influencers! You’ll see exactly what we mean by this in the tutorial we’ve laid out below (which will take you, step by step, through the process of using InflueNex to contact a YouTuber for permission to use their music.) Before any of that, however, here are some of InflueNex’s main features:
Key Features of InflueNex:
First up, use the search feature provided by InflueNex to locate the influencer that you want to contact for permission! There are two tools that you can use for this: Enter the keywords related to the influencer's channel name, channel topic and so on; and use the advanced filters below the searching bar to make your search more specific.
Based on your set search parameters, a list of influencers will appear. Choose whatever influencer you want to contact in order to view their InflueNex dashboard.
The InflueNex dashboard is packed with all sorts of helpful analytics and features. The one that you need to pay attention to, for contacting YouTubers, is the Send Invitation button. Click that in order to move to the next step.
InflueNex has a smart email service that will handle a lot of things for you (like automatically inputting the YouTuber’s contact information.) The only thing left for you to do is to write your request for permission to use the YouTuber’s music, and then click SEND.
Just for comparative purposes, we’re also going to be teaching you how to contact music influencers on Instagram! For this, just like with the previous tutorial, we’re going to be using a third-party tool. This time, it’s called Heepsy. Unlike InflueNex, Heepsy’s database is curated, so you won’t be able to use this to find all music Instagram influencers. Nevertheless, it’s still highly effective as a way of finding and contacting music influencers.
In order to use Heepsy, you need to create an account for it.
Finish creating your Heepsy account by filling in the account form as is shown in the image below!
Now, it’s time to use the search tools and filters offered by Heepsy in order to find an Instagram music influencer to contact for permission to use their music!
If you want to be able to use Heepsy to find the Instagram influencer’s contact information, you will have to get a Heepsy upgrade!
To finish this all off, here is a list of the top 10 music influencers on social media — including their contact information and general statistics (which was contrived from InflueNex.) If ever you wanted to learn more about any of the influencers on this list, just click the URL provided. You’ll be taken to their InflueNex dashboard, where you can contact them on-site (without having to manually go searching for their contact information.)
Baby Ariel had seen explosive growth on social media through both musical.ly and TikTok by posting fun and short videos of her lip-synching to popular pop songs. Nowadays, she’s diving straight into the genre by using her new-found social media influence to leverage her original music! Despite being quite young, she had been considered one of the most influential people on the internet — and she’s bound to continue growing from here on out.
Marc Rebillet is known for his flexible and fun-loving music style. It’s not the kind of music that you’re going to hear anywhere else, but that’s exactly why he has so many people following him! Without knowing it, you’ve probably even heard one of his songs through viral posts on social media — which is exactly why he ow has over 300K followers on YouTube alone!
Kyle Beats (real name, Kyle Garvan) is another popular YouTube music influencer that produces incredibly fun and catchy beats. Although, unlike Rebillet, he tends to stick to the hip-hop genre. You may have heard one of his beats in the background of another YouTube influencer’s content multiple times already — and he’s been known to work with musicians as well. At the moment, he almost has 280K followers on YouTube (where he posts vlogs and other music-related content.)
Josephine Alexandra is another known music influencer. Although unlike the previous influencers, she’s better known for her covers. She plays around with a lot of music genres for her covers and can play several instruments to back up her already beautiful vocals. At the time of writing this article, she has over 660K subscribers on YouTube.
Imaginary Ambition is a popular music influencer known for his humorous music-based YouTube videos (which are both funny and pleasing to the ears!) He posts a lot of how-to videos as well, which often end up being a lot more satirical that you’d probably expect. However, it’s definitely catching people’s attention. After all, as of now, he has grown his channel to about 400K subscribers on YouTube.
The Theorist, as you may be able to guess from the classy name, is a musician that focuses on classical music — with his skills on the Piano being his most prevalent figure. He’s best known for turning popular pop music into amazingly soothing classic renditions, but he also produces original music of his own. At the time of writing this article, he’s grown his YouTube channel to almost 1 million subscribers!
Landon Austin does a lot of everything on Social Media. But, he’s also quite well-known for being a very talented country singer slash songwriter. Despite only having about 275K subscribers on his YouTube channel, a lot of his country covers, and original music have been listened to millions of times on popular streaming sites, like Spotify.
FrankJavCee popularized a very specific type of YouTube content that mixed fun and satirical humor along with beautiful music. He hasn’t had much growth in recent times, at least when it comes to YouTube — which is at 296K subscribers currently. However, he’s a pioneer that is probably going to continue evolving from here!
AcestoAces is another social media influencer that does a little bit of a lot of things. However, on the music side of the industry, he’s well known for producing his own music — which tends towards the more electronic pop kind of feel. At the moment, he has over 470K subscribers on his YouTube channel!
The last music influencer on our list is Corey Vidal. He’s a Canadian-based YouTuber that is becoming pretty well known for his music-based content. Still, as a growing influencer, there is much left to expect from him. At the time of writing this article, he has over 217K subscribers on YouTube!
Don’t risk getting into a copyright battle — only to end up losing all the profit from the content you worked so hard to make! If you’re going to use copywritten music for your videos or posts, and expect to profit from it, then you need to contact the song-owner before you even think of sharing your content on social media! For that, we recommend tools like InflueNex (especially if you’re looking to get the permission of a YouTube influencer.)
