We all know how popular the lyric music video is. For whatever reason, people are a fan of posting them more so than the actual “official” music video.
Having lyrics on your music video will actually help keep people watching your video longer. Sometimes all you need are some colorful lyrics going across the screen to your music to keep fans following along. Feel free to throw in some images of your band or something you may be promoting at the time. YouTube has created a great feature called YouTube Art Tracks. They are becoming more and more popular.
The days of setting up a movie like music video that costs way more money than they are worth are pretty much over. MTV is no longer the only way to watch music videos.

It’s also the easiest way for your fans to share your music with other people by posting it on their social media sites.
