What does royalty free mean?
Royalty free means that you can keep all earnings from the release of your song project. Non-Exclusive Beats are 100% royalty-free. Exclusive Beats are subject to publishing splits between the artist and composer.
Will the voice tags be removed from the instrumental when I buy it?
Yes, with the purchase of any license option (Lease, Premium, Unlimited), all RapBeats.co.uk vocal advertisements (voice tags) are removed from the instrumental.
Can I purchase a beat without a hook?
For all Beats With Hooks, both versions (with and without the hook) will be automatically included in your instant downloads. This way, you will have the option of performing your own chorus.
How long do the licenses last for?
The Lease and Premium License options expire once the distribution and/or streaming limits have been reached. The Unlimited License option never expires.
How do I get my beats once I have paid?
When your order is completed, you will have instant access to your downloads on the Order Success page and/or by logging in to your account (a link will be included in your Order Receipt, which is delivered electronically by email).
If I buy a lease, can I upgrade to Premium or Unlimited later?
The option to upgrade is available for the Leasing Rights and Premium License options (cost being the difference). To upgrade, please complete the Upgrade Request Form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Can I purchase exclusive rights to an instrumental on RapBeats.co.uk?

What Payment Options do you have?
We accept all major Credit and Debit Cards, PayPal, Amazon Pay, Apple Pay, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Google Pay.
Do I need to clear any samples used in the instrumentals on RapBeats.co.uk?

Can I change the beat once I have paid for a license?
You may add sounds to or remove sounds from the instrumental to suit your song project. Please note that our instrumentals are for song recording purposes only; they cannot be used for remix purposes (I.e. sampling for music production).
With regards to listing credit, you can add your name and the instrument(s) played in the following example format:

Can I include the singer in the title if I buy a Beat With Hooks?
In most cases, the featured vocalists wish to remain anonymous for branding-related purposes but we do recommend contacting us so we can double-check as the "anonymity" requests vary from singer to singer.
What do I do if I receive a copyright claim on YouTube?
You may receive an automatic copyright claim ("on behalf of Rap Beats"). However, if you have purchased a valid license, you can have the copyright claim removed by following the steps listed on the Copyright Claim page.
Can I purchase the stems to an instrumental?
The tracked out stems (labeled "STEMS") are included with the Premium and Unlimited options only. Exclusive Beats will also include the stems. These files are delivered within a compressed zip.
