Top 20 TikTok Songs:


20. Pop out by Polo G (Feat. Lil Tjay)

19. Ponyo On the Cliff by the Sea by Noah Cyrus & Frankie Jonas

This song, released on the official soundtrack of the film of the same name, is a little over a decade old.

After falling in love with him, the goldfish princess longs to become human.

The plot of the film seems sad, but the song is energetic and upbeat. Even though it's on TikTok's Global Hits List, the song may not make it onto your playlist - unless you often promote kids who need driving music.


18. 23 by Mike WiLL Made-It (Feat. Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J)

Miley Cyrus is no stranger to working with hip-hop and rap artists. On "23" she works with Mike WiLL Made-It and Wiz Khalifa to deliver a track with an addicting choir.

16. Cradles from Sub Urban

Are you looking for something that combines melancholy with a sense of nostalgia? "Cradles" is enough. The song, also released in 2019, has gained momentum on Spotify with over 14 million streams.


15. Womp Womp by Valee (Feat. Jeremih)

"Womp Womp" is one of the catchy hip-hop / rap songs that came out in 2018. It has a solid bass line and you can't help but repeat the words "womp womp" when he sings them.

While it's a favorite on TikTok, the song hasn't received as much praise on charts around the world. It made it into the top 100 Canada Singles and came in at number 98.

14. Habits (Stay High) by Tove Lo

Tove Lo gives the audience a crash course in dealing with a bad breakup. And while that sounds almost depressing, this song is very happy and easily becomes a pick that you play more than once.

"Habits (Stay High)" was released in 2014 and is part of Tove Lo's debut album "Queen of the Clouds".


13. Kerwin Frost Scratch That by Caash

"Kerwin Frost Scratch That" might confuse you a little when you hear the first few seconds. Artist Matt Ox uses the opening sequence of the Game of Thrones theme song. What follows is something hip hop and rap fans will appreciate.

Ox's rap style is raw and he delivers the right amount of energy to keep your head bobbing.

This song contains explicit lyrics.


12. Shaed trampolines

Few artists are able to find a balance between different genres and produce something great. Shaed just happens to be one of the chosen few. The Washington-based trio's music is a mix of alternative / indie and dance / electronics. Your feet will definitely start to stand up "trampoline" to knock.

 The song is from her 2018 album “Melt”.


11. Addicted to My Ex by M City JR

As catchy as it is, "Addicted to my Ex" is a weird Rachel song. M City JR describes all the ways he takes revenge on his ex for treating his ex badly. And while the thought seems a little hasty, there's a good chance you'll be singing along in the middle of the song.

The song can be heard on the album of the same name and reached a top position of 41 on the Billboard Hot Hip-Hop Song Charts in 2016.

This song contains explicit lyrics.


10. You're a Mean One, Mr. from Tyler The Creator

Tyler Creator is considered one of the most controversial artists of our time. In 2015 he was forced to cancel a UK tour because of the lyrics in his music. Authorities believed his concerts might encourage violence and intolerance towards homosexuality.

Hearing his voice over a nursery rhyme therefore seems a bit bizarre. Rest assured, this song is curse-free and quite fun to listen to.

The song is part of the soundtrack by Dr. Seuss' The Grinch and grows on your heart.


9. Reverse by Vic Mensa (Feat. G-Easy)

"Reverse" comes in 9th and we are convinced that the choir has everything to represent its position. There is an unmistakable pause to which you can't help but react just before the chorus, which makes the song a catchy tune.

"Reverse" is from Vic Mensa's “Hooligans” 2018 collaboration album with G Herbo, JESSE and Ty Dolla $ ign.

This song contains explicit lyrics.


8. The Nights by Avicii

7. Old Town Road by Lil Nas X (Feat. Billy Ray Cyrus)

There's a really good chance you've heard, or heard of, Lil Nas' "Old Town Road". This hit was released earlier this year and quickly made it to the charts around the world. Working together, he has achieved what some might never have thought possible.

The country appeal of "Old Town Road" also caused a stir after Billboard removed it from the Hot Country Charter because it "did not contain enough elements of today's country music".

Nonetheless, this song is a favorite because it is easy to hear and sing, and it has also been nominated for various awards


6. Hey Julie KYLE (Feat. Lil Yachty)

It's easy to see why "Hey Julie" made it to number six on TikTok's top songs. It combines a lively melody with the background vocals of a children's choir, which gives it a sing-along appeal.

"Hey Julie" was released in 2018 and received over 11 million views on YouTube.

This song contains explicit lyrics.


5. Earth by Lil Dicky

Released three days before Earth Day, "Earth" is Lil Dicky's expression of a plea for unity and environmental awareness. Megastars Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Snoop Dogg, Sia and Kevin Hart can also be seen on "Earth".

True to Lil Dicky's musical genre, "Earth" is full of comedic lyrics and innuendos that will make you laugh.

This song contains explicit lyrics.


4. Crystal Dolphin from Englewood

While Englewood's music is classified as hip-hop, "Crystal Dolphin" is more like dance / disco. And that's absolutely fine. It's a fun, lively song.

3. Mom of Meghan Trainor

Songs that mothers cherish will always be winners. "Mom" by Meghan Trainor makes it to number three on the TikTok Global Hits Charts. Like most of her music, she is spirited and carries the melody with her infectious voice.
