Are you struggling to make TikTok videos for your business? We can help! This blog is updated monthly with the latest trending sounds so you can adapt them to your business/brand's niche. Read on to learn more. 


What’s something you just can’t stop talking about? This sound is going viral. All you have to do is replace the word "Regina" and reveal your truth! This Mean Girls audio is iconic and we’re obsessed with an easy trend like this one.

Here’s a funny example that we’ve seen. 

I’m your biggest fan

Lady Gaga’s throwback tune “Paparazzi” is the perfect audio to use on TikTok at the moment. Using the live rendition of the song, creators share what they’re the biggest fans of. Whether that’s an iconic celebrity or your favourite fizzy drink, you’ll be sure to get on the For You page with this one.

Are any Diet Coke lovers reading this? You can probably relate to this one.

Here I am, once again

Can you remember Kelly Clarkson’s nostalgic track - "Behind These Hazel Eyes"? Well, it’s certainly making a comeback on TikTok this month. The lyric, “Here I am, once again” has been offering marketing teams and creators alike the hilarious opportunity to share habits you can’t shake.

Lipsync the song using this audio, and use the text overlay tool to share your unwanted habit. Here’s a great example. 

Lions and Tigers and Bears 

This audio is super catchy and has been stuck in my head all week. It’s the sped-up version of “Lions, Tigers & Bears“ by Jazmine Sullivan and everyone is sharing something which they dislike or a relatable fear! 

Another super easy trend to jump on to. Just use the onscreen text while lipsyncing the lyrics. Don’t forget to add the Lion, Tiger and Bear emojis to the beat of the song to make your TikTok look that little bit more professional. 

Here’s a good example from the supermarket brand Waitrose, they used this trend as an opportunity to come back at rival M&S, who are so successful on the platform. 

The Nervous Laugh

I don’t know about you but I definitely laugh when I’m nervous or uncomfortable. This trend is all about being relatable. TikTok creators and brands have used this audio to reenact a time when they laughed their way out of an uncomfortable or awkward situation.

We’ve all been there! Here’s a funny example that I’m sure we can all relate to.
