How to handle artist collaborations (stylized as "artist1 vs. artist2" on Discogs)

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f58f7f995f0>

New content contributor to MusicBrainz so I want to make sure I don’t mess anything up. I’m trying to add an album where two artists collaborated and authored the song with both of their names.

Specifically, it’s the artists Bangboy and Hansebanger, who, according to their discogs release (Bangboy vs. Hansebanger – Jump (2009, File) - Discogs), published the album as “Bangboy vs. Hansebanger”. I don’t want to add this versus name as a new artist, but its also incorrect to just assign the album and tracks to a single one.

What’s the proper way to handle this situation?

Add the artists with a join phrase of " vs. "
