The popular social media platform released its “Year In Music” report, summarizing that over 70 artists who found success on the platform in 2020 all secured deals with major record labels.
“We at TikTok share our community’s passion for music and we’re dedicated to providing a platform where artists and fans can interact and thrive,” said Ole Obermann, Global Head of Music at TikTok, in a statement. “It has been inspiring to watch our community bring new talent to the forefront, help send songs up the charts, and use music to create an oasis of joy during a trying time.”
The report points to singers like Powfu (who scored a massive hit “death bed”), Priscilla Block (“Just About Over You,” released in August, topped the iTunes chart minutes after its release), and Tai Verdes (“Stuck In The Middle”).
As for the more established and already successful artist, the report certifies Megan Thee Stallion as TikTok’s most viewed artist and credits Drake’s “Toosie Slide” as the fastest song this year to hit a billion video views. Read the full report here.
