Power Of TikTok

It is fascinating to see the power of social media, especially TikTok over the recent years. Most of these songs listed are performed by smaller, independent artists or artists from different generations and genres from other parts of the world. TikTok enables these artists to be discovered, or rediscovered, allowing for widespread exposure.
