WhoSampled dives into your music and reveals more some nice information behind it all.

Who sampled who? Does a song sound familiar? Just search for it in WhoSampled’s database and instantly find out why. For example, the WhoSampled page for Rihanna’s “Cheers (Drink to That)” confirms that it features an interpolation of Avril Lavigne’s “I’m With You.” It even tells you where the sample appears and lets you compare the two songs side by side with their respective music videos to boot. It's never been easier to compare two songs with one another, as well as learning about the reason behind it all.

Samples, remixes and more

Samples, remixes and more. Aside from searching for a particular song, you can let WhoSampled scan your library to surface the tracks that contain samples or are covers, remixes, or mashups. You can also check out the WhoSampled charts for the top-rated samples, covers, and remixes. The world of music can be a complicated one, but WhoSampled is an app that lets you see more about each song, which can lead to some very interesting discoveries. WhoSampled is a must-have app for anyone who is remotely interested in music beyond just listening to it in the background.

What is it about?

WhoSampled is an interesting app that lets you find out more about your own music collection that you may not have previously known about. You can get information like where was the song sampled, what bands have covered a song or artist, what remixes were made, and more. WhoSampled is basically a music DNA app that reveals a ton of hidden information about your music, and it just leads you down a rabbit hole. It's also fantastic for music discovery.

  • Like music discovery
  • Are curious about their own music collections

Not for those who...

  • Don't care for music discovery
  • Aren't the least bit curious

Why we love it

It's simple to use and the information that it reveals is rather in-depth, leading you to discover more great music.
