8. Touch It – Busta Rhymes
Due to its repetitive lyrics and tone, this song is often used in TikTok videos with repetitive, fashion-themed effects shot. This song was released on December 13, 2005, but because of its short and light tone, many TikTok content creators have used this song to make it popular again.
9. FVN! – LVL1
One of the most popular songs on Spotify, FVN! is a song in Spanish. This rap song went viral and was often used in animal content, especially cats, with the effect of flipping the photo over and over again.
10. Montero (Call Me by Your Name) – Lil Nas X
This song experienced controversy when it was first released on March 26, 2021. The theme which takes the red-black color as well as story-telling about the afterlife in the Official Music Video of this song makes many people nervous, but that does not prevent Montero from becoming one of the viral songs of 2021. The subtitle Call Me by Your Name may be quite confusing, but this phrase actually comes from Greek myth.
In this myth, humans originally had 1 body, 4 hands, 4 legs, and 2 faces. In this form, humans are able to love the gods, and in order not to be colonized by humans, Zeus cursed humans to separate the human body as it is now. That half of the human being became a separate soul mate from the current human being, so if you can find the perfect match for you, that partner is actually a part of you. It is from this myth that produces the phrase ‘Call Me by Your Name’.
11. Good 4 You – Olivia Rodrigo
As one of the singers from Gen Z, Rodrigo understands issues that are more relatable for today’s era. This is again Rodrigo’s 3rd single since May 14 and has occupied a position on the Billboard Hot 100. Just like Build a B*tch, Good 4 You also has a catchy tone and lyrics that reflect the problems of many women. Therefore, many TikTok users are often creative with this song.
12. Rasputin – Boney M.
Although quite popular today, Rasputin has actually been released since August 28, 1978. The song was produced by Germany-based disco pop and Euro group Boney M to tell the story of Grigori Rasputin, a friend and adviser to Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and his family during the early 20th century. ‘Rasputin’ depicts Rasputin as a playboy, mystical healer, and political manipulator.
13. Mоя голова винтом (my head is a screw) – Kostromin
With Russian lyrics and a fast tone, you’d probably assume this song to be upbeat. There is also a lot of TikTok content that uses this song in the theme of opposite attraction, where the subject of the content shows their partners, friends, or parents who are different from each other but are getting closer together. However, this song actually tells the story of a singer who is depressed because he is in a toxic relationship with his partner and finds it difficult to get out of the relationship.
