TikTok has not only revolutionized the world of digital marketing and social networks but has gone further with its famous challenges and the music of its videos.

Songs have a leading role as part of the content shared on this social platform, and many of these songs have gone viral. Others have risen from their ashes, and now we know songs that we didn’t even know existed.

Have you also become addicted to the songs that go viral on TikTok? If your answer is yes, here is a ranking of the most used and most popular TikTok songs in 2021.

#1. “I’m just a kid” by Simple Plan

This song from 2002 has gone viral 19 years after its release. Thanks to one of the most viewed challenges on TikTok this past year.

The challenge consists of a “Throwback” where users recreate their childhood photos. Here is an example:

This is one of the newest songs, released in 2021, that has been a hit on TikTok. This challenge consists of using an effect at the same time as the song.
