Emerging artists stand a chance to have their songs featured in NBA 2K22, the latest version of 2K’s popular basketball video game, as the game developer teams with SoundCloud on a new music-making contest. Emerging artists can submit original music to 2K and SoundCloud on the official ‘2K Beats: The Search’ website. SoundCloud Repost artists can submit through the Pitch to Partners tab. Additionally, artists can tag @NBA2K and @SoundCloud with #2KBeatsTheSearch on social media. Winning artists will be added to the NBA 2K22 soundtrack in 2022. 50 finalists will be chosen by January, then that will be narrowed down to the 20 winners who will be added to the game’s soundtrack. Royalties? Nope. Each winner will get a cash prize of $2k (we see what they’ve done there) while granting SoundCloud and 2K “a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid up, perpetual, irrevocable, fully sublicensable (through multiple tiers) and transferable license”. This year’s 2K Beats: The Search is the third iteration of the contest. “By joining forces with [SoundCloud], NBA 2K is looking to inspire these artists to create new music that has an impact and gives them the potential opportunity to be heard by millions of our players,” said David Kelley, Senior Manager of Global Partnerships and Music Licensing at 2K. Shauna Alexander, Global Vice President of Brand Partnerships at SoundCloud, added: “SoundCloud’s role in breaking music and connecting a young, diverse, and influential community of artists and fans is unrivaled. “Coupled with the NBA 2K soundtrack, a top place to uncover what’s new in music, ‘2K Beats: The Search’ offers artists on SoundCloud an incredible opportunity to reach a wider audience and engage with new fanbases."
