How to access related models in beforeUpdate() method?

How to access related models in beforeUpdate() method?

For example: Model Song has many Artists .

I want to check if a song has at least an artist, if true mark emptyinfo is "N", if false mark emptyinfo is "Y"

public function beforeUpdate()
{
    parent::beforeUpdate();

    if(count($this->artists) == 0) {
        $this->empty_info = "Y";
    } else {
        $this->empty_info = "N";
    }
}

I tried by cannot access artists in the function above.

Here is my Song class:

<?php

namespace Bcdcnt\Models;

use Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Relation;

class Song extends SongBase {

    /**
     *
     * @var integer
     */

    public function initialize() {
        parent::initialize();

        $this->hasManyToMany(
                "id", "Bcdcnt\Models\SongArtist", "song_id", "artist_id", "Bcdcnt\Models\Artist", "id", array('alias' => 'artists')

How you defined the relations ?

Artist class:

<?php namespace NS\Model;

class Artist extends AbstractModel {

    public $id;

    public function initialize() {
        $this->belongsTo('song_id', '\NS\Model\Song', 'id');
    }

}

Song class:

<?php namespace NS\Model;

class Song extends AbstractModel {

    public $id;

    public function initialize() {
        $this->hasMany('id', '\NS\Model\Artist', 'song_id', [
            'alias' => 'Artists'
        ]);
    }

}

Get them:

$song = new Song;
$artists = $song->artists;
// or
$artists = $song->getRelated('Artists');

Try with $this->getRelated('Artists')->count()

public function beforeUpdate()
{
    parent::beforeUpdate();

    if($this->getRelated('Artists')->count() == 0) {
        $this->empty_info = "Y";
    } else {
        $this->empty_info = "N";
    }
}

I have updated my full class of Song.

I can access related models outside the class, but inside the class can not.

For example, it is ok:

$song = new Song;
$artists = $song->artists;
// or
$artists = $song->getRelated('Artists');

But in beforeUpdate() function, it can not:

public function beforeUpdate()
{
parent::beforeUpdate();

if($this->getRelated('Artists')->count() == 0) {
    $this->empty_info = "Y";
} else {
    $this->empty_info = "N";
}
}
