The production of music will undoubtedly accelerate thanks to AI, but at a time when music streaming services are already overloaded with content. There are currently over 100 million songs available on Music and. It would take millennia to hear them all. More have recently been uploaded. Music creation is made more accessible by AI tools.

AI is transforming the music industry, with software such as covers.ai and other programmes that can create instrumentals from text, provide song writers with a beat, and aid in tune editing. However, there is a chance that AI-generated content will be released onto streaming services, competing with the works of real people. AI advancements go beyond electronic synths, automated drum machines, or Napster, and may produce a tremendous amount of material and compete with human activity. Streamers of music may boast about their collections, but number does not equal quality. The massive libraries of unheard tunes that are stored and streamed together have a significant environmental impact.
AI music may replace mood-based genres and be less expensive for streamers than paying royalties. Google has developed an AI programme called MusicLM that can produce music from text. However, there are instances of artists that collaborate with AI without competing with it. Holly Herndon, a musician, employed AI to replicate her voice and create Holly+, which she uses to sing in languages and musical genres that she is unable to. BandLab's SongStarter tool aims to lower some obstacles to songwriting, but AI may not be able to independently produce music that connects with people.
