However, artists found AI most valuable in crafting lyrics. Subsequently, AI played a significant role in research and inspiration, followed by beat and rhythm generation.

While artists debate over how AI can be used and whether it will affect their fans’ perception of them, it can also help bring otherwise dead art to life.
