Known as the platform for making viral videos and content, Tiktok has introduced to the youth a range of modern pop songs that are catchy & danceable to. Lucky for us, these songs are also relatively easy to play on the piano! The following running list are some of the music that has gone viral on the internet due to Tiktok. So put on your practicing caps and get ready to learn & impress your friends!
1. Doja Cat - Say So
Doja Cat's Say So went so viral on a Tiktok dance video created by a teen Haley Sharpe, so much so that she was crowned "The Queen of Tiktok". It became such a trend to do the dance along with "Say So", that Doja Cat herself included the dance in her music video. The dance moves involve a simple punch and a body roll that anyone who uses TikTok would instinctively know how to execute the moves by heart.
2. Dua Lipa - Don't Start Now
Dua Lipa's Don't Start Now is also a staple for Tiktok videos. The moves compared to Doja Cat's Say So are a little bit more complex but nonetheless, fun to do. However, it is easier to play this song on the piano compared to the rest of this list! So if you're not much of a dancer, but a great piano player, then this song is for you!
3. Beabadobee - Coffee
Beabadobee has featured on our page articles a number of times for her unique "Bedroom pop" sound. Her song "Coffee" became a trend on Tiktok videos where people would make iced coffee, starbuck drinks or engage in other activities that are seemingly calm and simple to do. It creates an ambient atmosphere and such videos were dubbed as "self-care" videos, demonstrating things you can do to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health.
4. Curtis Waters - Stunnin'
Curtis Waters' Stunnin is the go-to song to listen to when you're feeling good about yourself! Unlike other TikTok songs that usually go with dancing, Stunnin' is used to show off your outfits and your unique sense of fashion. People would come up with a creative situation such as "If I were a gym trainer in Pokemon" & pick outfits that they would wear in that context. So, if you're into fashion, try this challenge on Tiktok!
5. The Weeknd - Blinding Lights
One of my favourite songs on Tiktok, The Weeknd's Blinding Lights is meant to execute a simple but fun dance move with your friends and family! The challenge is to be as synchronised as possible, and of course to enjoy yourselves with your loved ones. On piano, this song is also rather easy to learn, with such a catchy beat, it is a song for both dancing & playing!
