What causes songs to boom on TikTok? In simplest terms, videos on TikTok have the capacity to reach a lot of people. According to Wallaroo Media, TikTok has over 1 billion users, is available in over 150 countries and has been downloaded in the United States over 200 million times. If a song becomes associated with a dance or trend, it’s likely on a fast track to streams and downloads due to TikTok’s significant global reach.

Songs on TikTok have also trended despite being lesser-known tracks on artists’ albums, in a language different to that of the user who shared it or even decades old. Tiktok breathes new life into old songs and has been proven to impact the top most-streamed songs of an artist or band. After going viral on TikTok, more dedicated fans of the music will begin to stream them on platforms like Spotify.
