Mastercard is orchestrating itself to be at the forefront of digital music innovation. Tuning into its ‘Mastercard Web3 Music Accelerator’, the banking giant’s harmonic blockchain initiative is on the brink of debuting five pioneering AI-generated music NFTs presented by Billboard from July 27.
This intriguing pinnacle of Mastercard’s already-existing Web3 program is an extension of the company’s ‘Mastercard Music Pass’, which impressively witnessed over 100k mints. Now preparing to set the project’s stage are five artists from different corners of the world — all of who will be taking full advantage of the pioneering AI tools and educational advice offered.

A Symphony of NFTs, AI and Musical Talents
AI Music Studio — bolstered by the industry-leading generative AI music technology firm WarpSound — spearheaded the production of these artists utilizing AI technology:

- LeriQ: Nigerian afrobeat and R&B record producer and songwriter
- Cocoa Sarai: Brooklyn-bred, American-Jamaican singer
- Emily Vu: Vietnamese American pop artist championing LGBTQ+ rights
