In case you didn’t hear, BeatStars was recently featured in this month’s Hitmaker Issue of Variety! Recognized and respected throughout the world of show business, Variety has been the premiere source of entertainment news since 1905. For this feature, Variety tackled a multitude of topics, including how BeatStars was founded, essential milestones that put the company on the map, BeatStars Publishing signings, Billboard charting tracks to come out of the platform, & more.
When asked about what BeatStars stands for as a whole, our Founder/CEO Abe Batshon said:
“BeatStars is where songs are made. It’s where collaborators are introduced to each other and artists are able to express their art with their own definition and interpretation.”

While “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X might have been the biggest song to come out of BeatStars, Variety noted that a plethora of beats from music producers on the platform was also used to create major hit songs, including Megan Thee Stallion’s “Pressurelicious,” featuring Future; DJ Khaled’s “Big Time” and “Beautiful”; Cardi B’s “Up”; Pop Smoke and Dua Lipa’s “Demeanor”; and GloRilla’s “F.N.F. (Let’s Go).” This past June, BeatStars paid out over $200 million dollars to music creators worldwide.
