How To Upload Music to TikTok

Move over Instagram, TikTok has arrived and is taking the world by storm. Today, TikTok has millions of users around the world creating and uploading their own short videos to reach more than 1 billion people using the app around the world. As of 2019, there are 500 million users on TikTok and 500 million users on the Chinese app Douyin. In fact, there are 96 million users from the United States alone.

While you may be familiar with TikTok already, TikTok (formerly Musically) allows users to upload short videos from 3 to 15 seconds long. While more and more celebrities jump on the app, it is one of the best places that up and coming musicians can promote their music to gain exposure.

How to Upload Music to TikTok

For the longest time, it was almost impossible to get your music officially uploaded to the TikTok music library. While TikTok had struck deals with many of the world's biggest Record Labels, many independent musicians had to resort to uploading their own sound in the database. While a song could still go viral, user's personal sounds aren't tied in with the Apple Music API which shares data to Apple if a song is gaining virality. In this article, we will share just how you too can take advantage of getting your music onto TikTok.
