Movies, News

Selena Gomez had TikTok users engaged the most over the past year, according to a report released by the social video-sharing platform.

Gomez, who has almost 60 million followers, was crowned TikTok’s most popular artist in the United States. The multi-hyphenate, who regularly posts using the viral sounds du jour, leads the pack of musicians who made the top 10, joining Ice Spice, Natalie Jane, Lizzo, Ariana Grande and more. She also was the second-most popular artist worldwide, only second to Kim Loaiza and above Blackpink, Shakira and BTS. All credit goes to Gomez herself, whose February video of her getting ready for a 6 a.m. flight accrued more than 24 million likes and ranked fourth on the top U.S. trending videos.

Elsewhere, Justine Skye had a commendable year after TikTokers latched onto a sped-up version of her 2014 single “Collide” and sent it up as the most-used sound in the U.S. with more than 6 million creates across song versions. She wasn’t the only one with sped-up renditions to make the top 10, as Fifty Fifty’s “Cupid – Twin Ver – Sped-Up Version,” Partynextdoor’s “Her Way (Sped Up)” and Toosii’s “Favorite Song – Sped Up” consecutively landed in the spots behind her. Other sounds that went mega-viral include Taylor Swift’s “Cruel Summer,” PinkPantheress and Ice Spice’s “Boy’s a Liar, Pt. 2” and Jain’s “Makeba.”

Globally, Fifty Fifty’s “Cupid” was used the most with over 20 million creations, joined by Yvng Lvcas and Peso Pluma’s “La Bebe (Remix),” Doechii’s “What It Is – Solo Version” and Thuy’s sped-up version of “Girls Like Me Don’t Cry.” 

“Year on TikTok 2023 is a way for us to honor some of the standout moments that have happened on TikTok throughout the year,” says Adam Presser, head of operations at TikTok. “It’s a window into stories that have inspired, entertained and educated over 1 billion people around the world. Thank you for another year of bringing joy to our community and sharing your creativity with us.”
