Samsung and TikTok have officially announced their partnership to introduce a new international music discovery platform – StemDrop. The two companies aim to offer users an opportunity to collaborate with the world’s finest songwriters through StemDrop.
According to the information, StemDrop will officially launch on October 26 on TikTok with creative direction from Syco Entertainment, Universal Music Group – the world leader in music-based entertainment, and its Republic Records label.
The new music discovery format will revolutionize global music collaboration, democratize music production and give all music creators a platform to showcase their talent to the world.
StemDrop will debut with Max Martin who will release a 60-second splice of an original new single. As soon as the sound is available through StemDrop, TikTok users will have access to the stems, which are individual components of the song, including vocals, drums, bass lines, and so on.

After you finish recording your SteamDrop, you can seamlessly connect your Galaxy Buds 2 Pro to your Galaxy Z Flip 4 and listen back to Hi-Fi quality sound, giving you an in-studio experience from home or on the go.
Benjamin Braun, Chief Marketing Officer at Samsung Europe says, “From movies, games and music – Samsung understands that entertainment is the most exciting when it evolves.
