“It is not only the exposure, it is the level of engagement in the audience that generates great results; when a song is posted on tiktok, there is an increase in consumption on all platforms of almost 400% in relation to the current consumption of the song, before the explosion of the single on this social network”, Oval said.

TikTok allows its users to discover new sounds, get them out of their musical “bubbles or tastes” and explore new territories through trends and viral dances or songs.

In this social network, it does not matter if the artist is emerging, international, or has a long history, if he sings in another language, or if his genre is different from the one that musically attracts him; he encourages the public to like it.

Likewise, creators on TikTok use music to earn income. Song promotion deals between music marketers and influencers became a major source of revenue for TikTok creators. Some users can earn hundreds or even thousands of dollars for a single video promoting an artist’s track.

Lastly, many artists have written songs specifically for the Bytedance social network. While TikTok is often a go-to platform for promoting a newly released track, some artists incorporate the app even earlier in their creative process.
