About Genius Lyrics

Genius brings music intelligence to the masses.

Founded in 2009, Genius is a unique media company that’s powered by community, our in-house creative team, and the artists themselves. We serve music knowledge to over 100 million people each month on Genius.com and everywhere music fans connect across the internet.

Genius started as a platform for annotating clever rap lyrics—our original name was Rap Genius. Over the years, we’ve expanded our mission to include more than hip-hop, and more than just lyrics. Every song has a story that needs to be told, and the biggest names in music—including Kendrick Lamar, Ariana Grande, and Lin-Manuel Miranda—come to Genius to give the world insight into their art.

The Genius community has grown into an influential force of over 2 million contributors, editors, and musicians who sign up to discuss and deconstruct their favorite songs with fans all around the world. As a result of their collective music IQ, we have the best lyrics and knowledge database on the internet—that’s over 25 million songs, albums, artists, and annotations.

The in-house creative team at Genius spotlights the stories behind the music that matter most. They work with artists and the community to transform insider knowledge into videos, events, in-depth features, breaking news coverage, and a variety of music knowledge content for the masses.
