musiXmatch lyrics API
The fastest, most powerful and legal way to display lyrics on your website or in your application. Today.
musiXmatch lyrics API is a robust service that permits you to search and retrieve lyrics in the simplest possible way. It just works.
Follow these steps:
- Register for an API key:
- Read the documentation on our wiki:
- Integrate the musiXmatch service with your web site or application
All you need to do is register in order to get your API key, a mandatory parameter for most of our API calls. It’s your personal identifier and should be kept secret.
In the most common scenario you only need to implement two API calls:
The first call is to match your catalog to ours using the search function (details on the track.search page) and the second is to get the lyrics (see the page track.lyrics.get). That’s it!
If you’re interested in more advanced features, check out the API methods page.
