MetroLyrics is the premier destination for song lyrics online, with a legal database of over 700,000 titles.
MetroLyrics is the most popular lyrics website worldwide, boasting the most comprehensive database of legal lyrics in the world with over 700,000 titles. With a best-in-class design and first-to-market social media sharing features, MetroLyrics is the web’s premiere lyrics site.
Despite lyrics being one of the most searched terms online, the online music experience has generally been centered around listening, watching, and editorial services. It is MetroLyrics’ understanding and focus on the emotional connection inherent to the lyrics experience that allows them to dominate the lyrics space.
MetroLyrics’ partnership with CBSIMG brands, Radio.com, MP3.com, and Last.fm, enhances the music experience:
MetroLyrics was the first lyrics site to provide users with licensed song lyrics and to compensate copyright holders for the content through its partnership with Gracenote. The company was founded in 2002 by Milun Tesovic and Alan Juristovski in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. CBSIMG acquired MetroLyrics in September, 2011.
