  4. What is an Official Artist Channel, and how do I get one?

If you’re an artist on YouTube, your Official Artist Channel (OAC) brings together all your content from your different YouTube channels into one place. The channel automatically programs your music catalogue on two new shelves, including your music videos, songs and albums.

An Official Artist Channel (OAC) brings together all your content from your different YouTube channels into one place.

This means if you have music / content on your own YouTube channel, a Topic channel, and a 3rd channel – like a VEVO channel, you can choose to have all of the content housed under an Official Artist Channel.
