Our Pick: Top 20 TikTok Songs We Keep Hearing
TikTok is the app of the moment: it is a social network that allows its users, who are now millions, to make short videos of different types: new and funny, imitations of choreographies, reinterpretation of movie and TV series scenes. The possibilities are infinite.
The keywords are creativity and originality. To these videos, you can add sounds, originals, or songs.
An essential component of TikTok is the music that accompanies their videos. Almost everyone uses it one way or the other in their videos.
1. Roxanne By Arizona Zervas
The American rapper and songwriter has a song that has been a hit on TikTok since the end of 2019. And that made him reach the first position in Spotify's Top 50 in the United States, marked his debut in the Hot 100, and climbed various peaks of world charts up to signing with Columbia Records.
2. Say So By Doja Cat
With "Say so," the American rapper Doja Cat reprised the song by Nicky Minaj. His version took the piece to a new level, turning it into a fundamental social catchphrase.

5. Old Town Road By Lil Nas X Featuring Billy Ray Cyrus
Lil Nas X grinds record after record conquering rankings, TikTok, Youtube, and half the world chart. Excluded from the country charts, the piece made its big exploit right on the platform, and the most significant push came from a meme: drinking yee juice with the song in the background. Voila, here you are transformed into a cowboy!
6. Death Bed (Coffee For Your Head) By Powfu
You will have heard the song at least once in your life, scrolling through TikTok. The Canadian rapper named Powfu is behind this viral hit. His fans knew him since 2018 on SoundCloud.
But it is in 2019 with Death Bed he reaches success. Based on a sample of the song Coffee by singer Beabadoobee, his song entered the charts worldwide.
7. The Spectre By Alan Walker
"The Specter" by Alan Walker is the best way to let people know more about you, thanks to TikTok. The song's lyrics have the chorus: "Hello, hello. Nice to meet you.".For this, as the song goes, some questions must be answered, such as name, age, nationality, passions.

10. Lottery (Renegade) By K Camp

11. Oh Nanana Remix By Bonde R300
The song goes just like that, "Na Na naaa," and for this reason, it could only be called "NANANA." For ballet fans on TikTok: the choreography to follow requires coordination and shouldn't be done alone.
12. Pew Pew Pew By Auntie Hammy

15. Hips Don't Lie By Shakira Featuring Wyclef Jean

19. Sunday Best By Surfaces
They are a Texan R&B duo: Colin Padalecki & Frank Forrest launched the single at the beginning of 2019, but still, on TikTok, we talk a lot about them (and always dance with them). A super positive piece to welcome summer with that bit of good humor you need.
