A cover is your version of a song by another author. To distribute it in digital stores you must have a license. Currently, it is essential that you manage and present a "License for digital distribution" if the song you covered:

is from an English-speaking artist, or
It is by a Spanish-speaking artist but published by one of the labels called "Major": Sony, Warner, Universal.

You can manage this license in the copyright management company of your country or on websites such as:
