You Can Thank TikTok For Spotifys Most Popular Throwback Songs Of The Year

TikTok has revealed its most popular UK song used on the app in 2021.

The result means that more videos were created using this song than any other this year; it was revealed to be “Body” by Tion Wayne and Russ Millions

This marks the first for drill music as it’s the first song of the genre to take the title.

Speaking to Newsbeat, Tion Wayne said: “TikTok is the new thing, man. It’s great to see everyone get together and make trends go viral. Everyone got involved, we appreciate it.”

Creators on the app opted mostly for the remix version of the track, which featured ArrDee, E1 (3x3), ZT (3x3), Bugzy Malone, Buni, Fivio Foreign and Darkoo.

“Body” also achieved another first earlier this year, becoming the first drill song to reach No 1 in the UK official chart.

In second place came “Like I Can” by Sam Smith, followed by Pink Pantheress’ “Just For Me” in third place, which also won TikTok’s breakout song of the summer in 2020.

PinkPantheress shared with Newsbeat that she uses the popular app to test how her songs will perform.

“I post a snippet of something, and if people like it I’ll go and record a full version,” she said.

The singer doesn’t record a full song without testing out her fans’ reactions on TikTok first.

“Before TikTok, I was using SoundCloud to post my music. The algorithm on Soundcloud isn’t the same.

“The algorithm is crazy on TikTok, you can post a video and you can have zero followers and it can do well.”
