Mastercard’s Web3 Music Accelerator to Debut AI-Generated Music NFTs

Mastercard is positioning itself as a pioneer in digital music innovation through its ‘Mastercard Web3 Music Accelerator.’ The banking giant’s harmonic blockchain initiative is set to unveil five groundbreaking AI-generated music NFTs, presented by Billboard on July 27.

This significant milestone expands upon Mastercard’s existing ‘Mastercard Music Pass,’ which has already witnessed over 100,000 mints. The upcoming project features five artists from diverse backgrounds, leveraging cutting-edge AI tools and educational guidance.

The AI Music Studio, in collaboration with WarpSound, a leading generative AI music technology firm, played a crucial role in producing the music for these artists:

  • Young Athena: A soul and R&B singer based in London and a BRIT School graduate.
  • LeriQ: A Nigerian afrobeat and R&B record producer and songwriter.
  • Cocoa Sarai: An American-Jamaican singer from Brooklyn.
  • Emily Vu: A Vietnamese American pop artist and LGBTQ+ rights champion.
  • Manu Manzo: A Venezuelan pop singer, songwriter, and producer.
  • With such a diverse range of musical talents, the Mastercard Web3 Music Accelerator aims to revolutionize the music landscape, ushering in an era of innovative, exclusive, and digitally-driven music production and consumption.

    Web3 enthusiasts and music aficionados can look forward to the live-stream Billboard event, where these AI-generated songs will be showcased for the first time. During the event, fans will have the opportunity to purchase the artists’ music NFTs through OneOf.
