I'm using apaciteThe apacite package documentation indicates I need the apacdoc package to cite songs, so I've included that as well. What's not clear to me is which bibtex fields should be added for the album and recording date.

dessa.bib:

@misc{mineshaft,
  author="Dessa",
  title="Mineshaft"
  year="2010",
}

dessa.tex:

\documentclass[man,12pt,apacite]{apa6}
\usepackage{apacite}
\usepackage{apacdoc}
\usepackage{url}

\title{The Title}
\shorttitle{Title}
\author{Insyte}
\affiliation{My School}
\note{\today}

\begin{document}
\maketitle

Dessa is a Minneapolis native ``underrated writer, overrated rapper''
\citesong{mineshaft} who performs with the alt-hip-hop collective, Doomtree.

\bibliography{dessa}
\end{document}

The output I get from that is this:

Dessa is a Minneapolis native “underrated writer, overrated rapper” Dessa who performs with the alt-hip-hop collective, Doomtree.

Note the citation consists of just the string "Dessa," without parenthesis or the rest of the citation. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

For citing songs, apacdoc provides the command:

\bibsong{author}{year}{song title}{track info}

and you should refer to it through a key field in this way:

key = {{\protect\bibsong{author}{year}{song title}{track info}}}

So, your dessa.bib can be changed to:

@incollection{mineshaft,
  key = {{\protect\bibsong{Dessa}{2010}{Mineshaft}{track~1}}}
}

There is just one problem: \bibsong command was thought to cite classical music and has a 4th argument for the number of the track. But you can change that argument to whatever you want (e.g. album, label).
