How Music Goes Viral on TikTok and Six of the Most Viral Songs of 2022 (so far)

There are some key elements of songs that make them gain popularity on TikTok including memorable lyrics in addition to danceable catchy trap beats, chord shifts, and bass drops. TikTok videos are typically 15 seconds long and that is why only a short part of a song (with that catchy lyrics) goes viral. [You know that the audio content of TikTok videos is not sung or voiced over by the users.]

Simply put, if a piece of music with quotable lyrics is a rib-tickler, it can enter the competition and try its luck to go viral on the platform! So TikTok can be even named a virality piste. The users turn songs into sounds and use them in video clips, and if a piece of music can gain enough popularity, it can even make a musician into the God of music

Data analysis shows that TikTok is bringing a metamorphosis and even a revolution in the music industry and among musicians. [Honestly, the formula for success on TikTok is still mysterious and it has turned it into a giant social media.]
