CULVER CITY, CALIFORNIA - AUGUST 27: The TikTok logo is displayed outside a TikTok office on August 27, 2020 in Culver City, California.

If you’re anything like me you’ve spent plenty of hours sucked into watching TikTok. With the advent of 3-minute videos, just a quick couple of videos quickly adds up to a lot of time. Trends come and go on TikTok, and if you’re planning to make a video you better do it fast. But what are the most popular trends on TikTok these days? There is so much to watch from dances to songs, challenges, shopping lists, and more. But it seems like more than anything it’s the music that guides the platform. And TikTok certainly has a massive impact on songs and musical artists these days. Heck, I know every word to a portion of a song before I even know the name or artists behind it.

In order to determine the most popular TikTok song trend Coco & Eve compiled a list of trending songs and analyzed Google Search data to see where each ranked. The most popular song in the U.S. featured in numerous TikToks is Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill. The song regained popularity thanks to the hit Netflix series, Stranger Things. But while that was the country’s favorite song, it didn’t take the crown in North Carolina. Think you know what did?
