Genius (Q3419343) has numeric IDs for artists, albums and songs. We already have properties for the human-readable IDs; the numeric IDs are more stable, but only the song IDs have an HTML interface (they redirect to the HTML pages with the human-readable URLs). However, per this discussion, because both groups of IDs are useful and generally stable, it would be appropriate to have properties for both groups of identifiers.

It would be possible to have a bot add values automatically for this property based on the existing Genius song ID (P6218) (and vice versa); the bot would scrape the existing links for the first match of {"name":"song_id","values":["1234". Jc86035 (talk) 17:25, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
