How to Embed a Song on Facebook

Facebook allows users to embed video clips directly to their profile, but offers no support for embedding audio clips as of the time of publication. To upload and embed an audio clip, such as a song, to your profile, you'll need to use a free online sound hosting service such as SoundCloud or ReverbNation. While any Facebook user can share a link to SoundCloud and have it appear as an embedded Flash audio player, ReverbNation's audio player can be embedded only into a Facebook page for a band or musician through the use of ReverbNation's Band Profile Facebook app.
