YouTube is launching a tool called "Dream Track" that allows users to create AI-generated music using the voices of popular artists

Nine artists, including John Legend, Demi Lovato, T-Pain, and Sia, have collaborated with YouTube for this tool.

The tool will be available to about 100 creators in the U.S. and limited to YouTube Shorts, the platform’s short-form video sharing feature.

YouTube aims to capitalize on the intersection of AI technology and music and address ethical and legal implications.

The company believes the tool will create deeper connections between artists, creators, and fans.

AI-generated music has been a topic of controversy, with record labels raising copyright concerns.

The launch of Dream Track is part of a suite of AI-related experiments by parent company Google.
