More than a billion people in everyone have a TikTok account.
The social network TikTok announced on Friday that it has compiled some of the biggest viral musical hits revealed on its platform to make an album that will be released on CD and vinyl this summer.
All these songs have been completely reworked by the German Babelsberg Film Orchestra.
Associated for the occasion with the Warner Classics label, it' is TikTok's first time venturing into the mainstream music market.
Six singles from the album will hit streaming platforms on the 8th July. All 18 songs from the full album TikTok Classics: Memes and Viral Hits will be available in August on platforms and in stores.
Anyone who has spent any time on the famous short video social network will instantly recognize songs such as No Roots(2017), by Alice Merton, or the & #x27;enjoyable Pieces (2020), by pianist Danilo Stankovic, viewed by 3.4 million people on TikTok.

“Listening to No Roots in a new musical context is inspiring. I'm excited about this project and can't wait to see how it will come to life.
The compilation gives pride of place to typical tunes that can explode on the platform like Monkeys Spinning Monkeys(2015), an upbeat, flute-filled ditty that makes perfect background music for many light-hearted videos.
Ditto for Wellerman Sea Shanty, which took over TikTok in early 2021 after a Scottish postman, Nathan Evans, recorded himself singing this 19th-century folk song.
