A common complaint about the inadequacies of reality is that it doesn’t have the appropriate background music for various occasions. Say, you are visiting a distant great-grand uncle on his deathbed. A somber, mellow passage of classical piano would be a nice touch to the occasion in case the tear ducts are dry (because you barely know the guy!), right?
TikTok (earlier known as Musical.ly) was founded with precisely the same thought in mind. The app is social networking with a touch of music, where users can make 15-second videos and live broadcasts with a sound track to pep things up. Unsurprisingly, the app has led to the discovery of a few remarkable talents. Here is a list of top TikTok stars who have made it big.
