Frequently Asked Questions

What are the most popular songs on TikTok?

In this post, we have case studies of the most popular songs on TikTok at the time of writing. These will, of course, change over time. These currently are:

  • “If We Ever Broke Up” by Mae Stephens
  • “Makeba” by Jain
  • “What It Is – Solo Version” by Doechii
  • “Cupid – Twin Ver. – Sped Up Version” by FIFTY FIFTY
  • “Super Shy” by NewJeans

Does TikTok make songs popular?

Technically, success on TikTok won’t help make music popular again - Billboard doesn’t track TikTok or include it in its calculations. Billboard does consider streaming, but it takes a lot of listens to equate to an album sale. The problem with music on TikTok is that fame can be fickle – today’s trend quickly becomes yesterday’s has-been. Yet, the songs we’ve covered here have become popular again on TikTok – at least for a short time within the TikTok platform.

How do I get 1-minute songs on TikTok?

Most songs on TikTok are 15 seconds, despite being able to upload videos of 60 seconds on the platform. This is because TikTok has a special license with music providers that only permits them to play a 15-second clip. However, you can get around this if you upload MP3 files from your phone to act as soundtracks to your 60-second videos. Be aware that TikTok sometimes cracks down on the use of non-copyright music in videos and may remove your track.

How do you find trending songs on TikTok?

It is surprisingly tricky to find trending songs on TikTok. One way is to go into your Discover section, click on a few videos, and note the music used in these videos. Another method is to click + on your home screen and then tap Sounds. This will bring up a series of song suggestions, including a category for TikTok Viral. Alternatively, you could click on one of the other playlists that TikTok recommends.
