Tiktok is now one of the most used applications after Youtube, by teenagers and even young adults, with about 755 million users worldwide in 2022.
So imagine how important it can be for artists to see their music trending on Tiktok. Thanks to Tiktok, most artists, such as Lil Nas X in 2019, who had released a video of his single ‘Old Town Road’, quickly went viral and reached number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 list.
Other artists, such as Andrew Jannaka, had his music video going viral, which led to him getting a deal with Sony Music.
Let’s jump on the top 5 trending tiktok songs now.
S.I.M.P (Squirrels In My Pants) – (From Phineas And Ferb)
The song was produced by Geek music, released in November 2021 and now it’s starting to go viral thanks to tiktok. Stars like Big Sean and his pregnant girlfriend, Jhené Aiko even jumped on the trend with a cute couplegoals video.
Rauw Alejandro x Baby Rasta – Punto 40
For this one it’s a big deal, because I’m a big fan of latino music. Nevertheless the latinotiktokers go crazy on these songs with their dance moves. The song was released on September 20, 2002, but two months later it has gone viral on tiktok and has reached a total of 31 million streams worldwide. Rauw Alejandro himself made a tiktok on his song.
Oliver Tree & Robin Schulz – Miss You
I personally don’t know this artist, but I guess I will jump on the trend very soon. The song was first heard on tiktok on October 10, 2022 on the artist’s account featuring Zendaya in the video, it quickly went viral in the following days. On Wednesday 2022, the artist published the music clip on youtube, the clip has already reached almost 2 million views.
Soulja Boy – Pretty Boy Swag
The song came out 10 years ago, it definitely made some people feel old among the Gen-z generation, not to mention the millennials. Not many old songs like this go viral, so I think Soulja Boy has Tiktok to thank. However, if you go on Tiktok right now, you’ll hear this song at least once or twice, regardless of your location. Celebrities like Kevin Hart made a fun video with the sound track.
Sam Smith – Unholy (ft. Kim Petras)
This is not my favorite Sam Smith’s song, but I can certainly create a fun tiktok video on the track. It was released in September with the audio and video clip. The global streaming of the song is really impressive with a total of 245 million streams. Sam Smith also made a fun video that he posted on tiktok using his soundtrack.
