TikTok Trending- July Edition

July was a big month for TikTok, with a plethora of trends. Check them out here: 

Songs:

Marry Me

This song can be used for a lot, but most typically users show themselves with someone and then covering up their face for dancing. Not sure why, but judging by its 1 million videos that use the sound, we would have to agree that it is quite catchy!

Street Fashion Game

If you’re not on Chinese street fashion TikTok yet, you should be! This sound is mostly used to showcase Chinese street fashion in slow motion, but also has videos of people walking in slow motion. With 524,000 videos using the sound, the creativity is endless.

Then Leave- 

This sound was initially used as a dance challenge, and while many still use it that way, it has also expanded to be in 2 million videos with all kinds of content!

Trends:

To be so young and successful (stop complaining)

@suexrose

My hubby said if I get to 500k followers at the end of July we’ll try for baby # 3. HELP ME OUT ##fyp ##momsoftiktok ##couplegoals ##cutebaby

♬ stop complaining – vaioriise

This trend shows people’s attributes/ characteristics, circumstances that make them successful, then the “but what about me” part of the song shows something that would negate everything they just said about being successful. Its success lies in its relatability via meme formats, a crowd favorite. 

I need a bad bleep, Addison Rae

@murphhhhhh

🧚🏻✨I need a bad bleep 🤬 uh Addison Rae ✨ lil shorty the baddest ✨ uh ya she got her way✨🧚🏻

♬ original sound – murphhhhhh

This trend is based on a video of Addison Rae posted reading lyrics of a song called Addison Rae, by The Kid Laroi in which she says “bleep” instead of a swear word used in the song. People say this phrase to mock her cheekily.
