4. Click Change Artwork to add track artwork to your beat. Then, you will be able to type in your track Title and select what type of track you are uploading. You are able to upload a beat, a chorus(beat with hook), a song, a top line, or a vocal. Then, you can schedule a release date. Leave this section as is if you want your beat to be public immediately. You can write a track description, and then set your track's visibility. Choose Private if you only want your track to be visible to you, choose Public if you want your track to be visible to everyone on the marketplace, and choose Unlisted if you want your track to be visible to people you send the link to.  Click Next Step when you are finished.
