    I've been disputing this with a friend and began to wonder how everyone else sorts their music when a "featuring" artist is a part of the track.


    So for example, if you put it with the song title it would look like this:
    Song Title (feat. Artist) | Main Artist
    And if you put it with the main artist it would look like this:
    Song Title | Main Artist (feat. Artist)

    Option 3 - no mention of the "featured" artist. I just file it under the "main" artist.

    I know "Under Pressure" features David Bowie, I don't need the .mp3 to tell me that. I just file it under Queen.

    I picked Main Artist; in affected tracks in my collection, the Artist field reads "Main Artist feat. Guest Artist." However, the Album Artist will usually read "Main Artist".

    On a related note:

    I do it with song title.


    That way, if I organize by artist, I'm not getting a song that's (primarily) by another artist mixed in.
