What should I do if I want to monetize my video on Youtube?
If you want to use your music for profit, monetizing in platforms like Youtube, you need the Unlimited or Exclusive licenses. More basics licenses don´t allow monetization. All instrumentals are registered in a Content ID administrator to avoid usage without the appropriate license. This system scans videos from Youtube and send a notification blocking this monetization temporarily, but you don´t have to worry if you adquired the correct license. Usage of this system is the only way to ensure good uses on Youtube.

Content ID (CDBaby, TuneCore…)
It is forbidden to register a beat or a song made with that beat in any content identification system, service provider, distributor or digital music aggregator, as TuneCore o CDBaby.
