Planned usebot duplication or replacement of performer (P175) on musical works
See alsoperformer (P175)


Currently, performer (P175) is used on items for music releases and tracks to represent the artists whose names are listed on the cover (i.e. the primary artist(s) and the featured artist(s)), rather than the actual list of performers (i.e. session musicians, band members and background vocalists). This property would separate those two different uses to make it possible to more clearly indicate what someone actually did for a musical work. Jc86035 (talk) 09:34, 31 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]
