Top 5 TikTok songs to listen to in 2023
Viral content on TikTok doesn't only exist there. Several musicians who release songs that become popular on the platform discover that the song has shot to the top of their list of the most-played songs on streaming services as well. In fact, the music industry has been somewhat upended by the virality of apps like TikTok.
Rather than the other way around, with the music industry pushing the music to audiences, labels are forced to identify and sign those songs as they go viral online. We can anticipate this exciting trend to continue as more and more musicians release brand-new songs and noises on websites like TikTok.

Laxed (Siren Beat)
'Laxed (Siren Beat)', previously known as 'Savage Love' was produced by New Zealand teen and music producer Jawsh 685. Jawsh 685 wrote the song as an homage to his Cook Island and Samoan ancestry.
Together with Keara Wilson's dance challenge, the original Megan Thee Stallion song 'Savage' has appeared in more than 30 million TikTok videos. The dancer was mentioned in Teen Vogue's ‘21 Under 21’ article because Wilson's choreography had such a significant impact on TikTok.
The song 'WAP' was a joint effort between Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. A young Guamanian choreographer named Brian Esperson posted a dance to the song on Instagram shortly after it was released in the first week of August. Cardi B herself released a clip from the video as well as clips of other dancers who attempted the routine after seeing it online.
'Say So' was previously well-known, but it became more well-known after TikTok influencer Haley Sharpe made a dance challenge based on the song. Almost 18 million TikTok videos have used it, and Doja Cat even asked Sharpe to share the choreography for the song’s music video. Moreover, the song debuted at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
