Is this an actual new song? Or did I just hear it on TikTok? That seems to be a more common phrase being said lately. New artists are expanding their audience through this social media platform, TikTok, and it can be a complete game changer for their career. Most people are discovering new songs through TikTok, so the smaller artists and bands have this whole new, exciting opportunity to “blow up” and go viral. And that is just as exciting for the viewers as well, because who doesn’t enjoy hearing a super cool song for the first time? And finding a new artist to add to your playlist? According to Wallaroom Media, “TikTok is available in over 150 countries, has over 1 billion users, and has been downloaded over 200 million times in the United States alone,” this just shows how much exposure different songs and artists get on this platform. And it’s not just the new artists or bands, it’s all the top artists promoting their new albums and singles. It’s super smart since so many people are on TikTok, that’s just the place all these artists want to be streaming their music. 

So, what does this mean for trending songs? Well, it means that TikTok is a perfect spot to learn the trending music is at the moment. Just going onto the app and scrolling through the For You Page, you will notice the songs users are consistently using. Those are probably some of the top trending songs! When songs are on trend, a bunch of users hop on and use that sound in their videos. That is how songs go viral and more people hear them! Everyone is trying to stay up to date on the trends!
