Listen on Spotify | Watch on YouTube

Key Lyrics:

Did I really just forget that melody?
Naw, na, na, banana-na-na
Alright, da, da da-da-da-da
When I popped off, then your girl gave me just a little bit of lockjaw

Why It’s So Popular: This has several hit factors. One is that this has similarities to the original Jackass, it’s fun to watch someone do something that’s mildly too dangerous for you to do. On top of that, the song has a nice drop timed with when the guy starts to slide over the lake. These combined give an adrenaline rush that brings people coming back.

8. Out of My League -- By Fitz & The Tantrums

Listen on Spotify | Watch on YouTube

Key Lyrics:

You know the ones who said I’d never find someone like you
And you were out of my league
All the things I believed

Why It’s So Popular: Everyone loves a sweet guy and when a guy is head over heels for a girl. For some reason, this reminds me of Heath Ledger singing “Can’t take my eyes off you” from the movie 10 Things I Hate About You. Maybe that was their inspiration for this tiktok and the song to go with it. In that case, find a classic movie scene everyone loves and put your own personal spin on it.

9. Valentino -- By 24KGoldn

Listen on Spotify | Watch on YouTube

Key Lyrics:

I don’t want a valentine
I just want Valentino
I just want the neck
I poker face like a casino
Deep throat
Know I get it in like a free throw
Shawty want some more
She just can’t seem to keep her knees closed

Why It’s So Popular: The anticipation of this tiktok is what I think makes it a hit, along with her lip-syncing to a catchy song. When you start the clip you’re not sure what she’s doing and keep watching to see what the end result of her makeup will be. Keeps the viewer watching to the end, which is what you want.

10. This is my family -- By steeerling

Original voice over / song

Key Lyrics:

It all started when my mom met my dad
And they fell in love and they had me
Hi, I’m Ryan and my life is kind of crazy

Why It’s So Popular: This is a great example of someone who created their own voice over that went viral. You don’t always have to use songs behind your tiktoks. You can sometimes use original voice-overs and that adds a bit of uniqueness to your clip. On top of that, you take two famous people who are skyrocketing in popularity (Billie Eilish and Lil Xan) and combine them in a personal touch and that’s a good recipe for success.

11. Truth Hurts -- By Lizzo

Listen on Spotify | Watch on YouTube

Key Lyrics:

I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% that b*tch
Even when I’m crying crazy
Yeah, I got boy problems, that’s the human in me
Bling bling, then I solve ’em, that’s the goddess in me

Why It’s So Popular: First of all, Lizzo is hot right now and that means any tiktok using this song will get some attention. But most importantly, everyone loves to see a cool principal that can let loose and dance in front of the school!

12. Bend and Snap -- By Annaleigh Ashford, Dequina Moore, Laura Bell Bundy, Legally Blonde Ensemble, Leslie Kritzer & Orfeh

Listen on Spotify | Watch on YouTube

Key Lyrics:

Look at my a$$
Look at my thighs
I’m catnip to the guys
They chase my tail
They drool and pant
Wanna touch this but they can’t

Why It’s So Popular: This has a good combination of dancing between a boy and a girl and a catchy song to go with it. Best of all, it looks like both of them are having a ton of fun making this video which I think makes a huge difference. If it looks like you’re having fun, that will be contagious.

13. Wing$ -- By Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Can you take me far away
Gimmie a star to reach for
Tell me what it takes

14. 223’s (feat. 9lokknine) -- By YNW Melly

Listen on Spotify | Watch on YouTube

Key Lyrics:

What all do you want from me?
AR’s and them 223’s

I’m hot, I’m 500 degrees
Heard he caught a body
Well, that does not mean sh*t to me

Why It’s So Popular: Take 4 cute girls and have them dance in synchrony and people will like it. It’s the same reason people enjoy the dancing girls at sporting games, synchronized dancing to a great song is always a fun option!

15. Say My Name -- By Alex Brightman, Sophia Anne Caruso, Kerry Butler & Rob McClure

Listen on Spotify | Watch on YouTube

Key Lyrics:

Lydia: Betelgeuse…
Betelgeuse: Yes

Lydia: Betelgeuse…
Betelgeuse: Yes
Lydia: Beeeeeeeeeeeeee….
Betelgeuse: Oh, oh, this is gonna be so good-
Lydia: -cause
Betelgeuse: What?
Lydia:
You’re so smart
A stand-up bro
I’ll think about your offer
Let you know

Why It’s So Popular: This is from the popular Broadway rendition of Beetlejuice. As an aside, you may be wondering why you sometimes it’s spelled Beetlejuice and sometimes it’s spelled Betelgeuse. That’s because Beetlejuice is based on the character Betelgeuse, who is named after the star Betelgeuse in the Orion constellation.

But back to why it’s popular and the main hit to this song is that it allows people to use two characters played often by one person. Sort of a bipolar look at the nice and not so nice sides of people. This inner look into people’s crazy hidden side is, as we mentioned above, is usually a great way to connect with people. Show them your true colors with all your flaws and people will love you for you.

Here are the ingredients for TikTok success. You don’t have to use all of them but combining one or several of them boost your chances of a tiktok hit!

  • Make use of the popularity of other songs, events (such as Halloween coming up), or people (such as Billie Eilish)
  • Spend some time editing the video to add an artistic flair to your TikTok and make sure it fits in with the background song.
  • Capture something romantic, funny, awe-inspiring, or dare devilish
  • Be yourself and pour your heart into it. That’s, after all, how we connect with one another and that’s what TikTok is all about. Expressing yourself creatively and connecting with others.

That wraps up our 2019 most popular TikTok songs! What did you think, have you used any of these songs yourself?
