Who is Brooke Barry?
Brooke Barry is an American TikTok star, social media influencer, model, and singer-songwriter. Active on the platform since when it was known as Musical.ly, she has garnered over two million followers and more than 100 million likes to date. A Florida native, Brooke Barry initially was not interested in Musical.ly, even though almost everyone in her social circle was using it at the time. It was only after her cousin and her sister introduced her to the app that she started posting content on it. Not long after, she posted a video of her March 2018 trip to New York set to Taylor Swift's 'Moving to New York', which became viral. Since then, she has become one of the most prominent users of TikTok. Her popularity has found its way to other social media platforms as well. She has about 300 thousand followers on Instagram and a couple of thousand followers on Twitter. She is also active on YouTube. In July 2019, Brooke Barry put out her first single, ‘Wake Up’. She is currently represented by The Orchard and WOMP Music Group.
Rise to Fame
Brooke Barry started using Instagram before any other social media platform. Her oldest post there, a photo of her with three of her friends with a caption reading “Hoco 2015”, dates back to October 18, 2015. She continued to upload photos from her personal life and travel in the next few years. After she became popular on Musical.ly, her Instagram account began drawing more traffic as well. These days, each of her posts receives thousands of likes and hundreds of comments. While she still uploads selfies, photos and videos of her family and from her travel, her content now includes paid promotions and modelling works.
During her high-school freshman year, almost everyone around her was using the Musical.ly app, but she was not interested in it at the time. Later, one of her sisters and one of her cousins helped her become acquainted with how the app functions. Her first viral video was of a performance set to Taylor Swift's 'Moving to New York', shot during her March 2018 trip to New York. In the ensuing months, her TikTok account grew exponentially, and now many of her videos garner hundreds of thousands of likes each. In almost all of her videos, she performs while lip-syncing to popular songs. She has used songs such as ‘Low Beams’ by Gavin Haley, ‘Gordon Ramsay’ by HL Wave (ft. Johnny Flames), and ‘Love and Fear’ by Felly and has done duets with the likes of @ashtonsky18, @savannah24bms, and @eric_montanez.
Barry set up her self-titled YouTube account on March 30, 2015, but did not upload her first video, titled ‘Get To Know Me!’, until June 28, 2018. Her channel currently has over a hundred thousand subscribers and more than three million total views. She predominantly uploads beauty vlogs, makeup tutorials, and reaction and review videos. The most popular videos on her channel are ‘How to Make Slow Motion HAIR FLIP Tik Tok + GIVEAWAY’ and ‘How To Do A Cool Slow Motion Video Edit On Musical.ly TikTok!’
On July 27, 2019, she released the music video for her debut single, ‘Wake Up’, on her YouTube channel.
