What’s Hot This Week: Five Trending TikTok Sounds From Diss Tracks to Mantras for a Wealthy Hubby

May 14, 2024

Whether you're looking to laugh, dance, or just add a little flair to your TikTok, we've got the lineup of what's making waves this week. Get your camera ready and let’s dive in!

🎶 Metro Boomin – BBL Drizzy

Unless you've been isolated in a secluded mountain cabin with no cellular signal, you've likely heard of the beef between Drake and Kendrick Lamar. Adding a new layer to this drama, Metro Boomin has dropped a diss track that mocks Drake’s alleged Brazilian butt lift surgery. The track's popularity on TikTok is skyrocketing, with a growth rate of 69%, suggesting it might remain in the spotlight for a while. If you're rooting for Kendrick, this audio is definitely for you. 

How to use the sound. Many creators are using the audio to comment on the beef, but you don’t have to stick to that script. Hip-hop and rap tracks pair up nicely with workout videos, adding a dynamic energy. Or take a cue from how Duolingo cleverly adapted the sound to fit their brand. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different creative approaches and maybe even go a bit unhinged. 

🎶 Checking in on Mr Beast – YouTube video by Cody Ko

You want to catch the latest trend that celebs are loving? Of course, you do! What kind of question is that?! Jump in with Camila Cabello and Haley Kalil on this quick and easy-to-film video idea. They're riding the wave of a new viral sound by YouTuber Cody Ko. Just a heads-up: the audio features the F-word.

How to use the sound. First, come up with some witty overlay text—browse through videos from other creators using this sound for some inspo. Next, film yourself lip-syncing to the first part of the audio and transition into a quirky Bridgerton-style waltz. Just like that, you're all set to drop your own viral bomb!

🎶 Trees and Flowers by Strawberry Switchblade – Angela ★

If you've been thinking about rocking a bob this summer, now's the time to make the chop and reveal your fresh look with this trending sound. Don’t forget to capture a before video with your long hair as you rush to the hair salon.

How to use the sound. Start with a video of yourself with long hair, then cut to a new you with a fresh haircut. Ideally, you’d want to shoot both parts in the same location, like your car or in front of the hair salon mirror. While the text is literally about short-hair girlies, you can totally spin it for other transformations. In that case, just add the overlay text to match your change. For example, how about this one, “I think girls with PhD degrees are, like, awesome”?    

🎶 Looking for a man tima remix – Tima Pages

“I'm looking for a man in finance. Trust fund. 6ft 5". Blue eyes. Finance.” Listen to this audio at your own risk: it might get stuck in your head. The original video posted by @girl_on_couch exploded on TikTok, racking up 13 million views in just a few weeks.  And now, we're treated to this fun remix as a trending song of the week. Use it for your content ideas, but don't say we didn't warn you—it's seriously addictive!

How to use the sound. This audio is a perfect dance bop, so you can film yourself dancing and lip-syncing to the beat. For the overlay text, go for something fun and ironic, like “Me after bombing another job interview” or “Me realizing I'm meant for luxury resorts and designer bags, not this 9-5 life.” Another idea might be to stitch together clips of you living to the fullest—think drinking overpriced coffee, hitting pilates, sipping cocktails at a rooftop bar—and make a joke about how you’re looking for a man in finance with a trust fund to pay for this lavish lifestyle.

🎶 Summer Walker – Anonymous Beats

We can't say it enough—we looove seeing atmospheric instrumental music making the list of top trending songs while being cleared for business accounts! This song is particularly big in the USA, and it has made a significant leap, climbing 11 spots in the last seven days. The versatility of the music is a huge plus, making it a perfect fit for a wide range of content ideas.

How to use the sound. We think it would make an excellent soundtrack for day-in-the-life videos. Also, it’s ideal for speaking videos, as background music that enhances the atmosphere without overpowering your voice.
