TikTok says its mission is to inspire creativity and bring joy. The leading video sharing app’s mission is steadily being accomplished. Everyone from Gen-Zers to grandparents are regularly tapping into TikTok for things like entertainment, life advice, cooking tips, bettering job hunting skills and staying in tune with the latest trends in pop culture. Since the early days of TikTok, music has played a role in propelling many of the popular app’s biggest trends and stars.

 

The app that helped launch Lil Nas X, Doja Cat and many others to pop star status continues to spotlight new and emerging talent. Babyxsosa, a 21-year-old native of Richmond, Virginia, is having a TikTok moment. More than 239,000 videos using her track “Everywhereigo” have been uploaded to TikTok in recent weeks.

 

New songs aren’t the only tracks that get lots of attention on TikTok. Although J. Cole recently released his sixth No. 1 album, The Off-Season, he can thank a cut found on his sophomore album for his increase in TikTok popularity this week. “She Knows” from 2013’s Born Sinner has soundtracked more than 200,000 TikTok videos. “Collard Greens,” the lead single to Schoolboy Q’s 2014 album, Oxymoron has also reemerged as a hit on TikTok.

 

As always, there are a lot of things happening on TikTok. We’ve compiled a list of this week’s TikTok hits for you.
