Theodor Haraldsson is a Swedish Musical.ly (now known as TikTok) star. Famous for his dance moves and lip-syncing covers on the TikTok app, Theodor has gained a massive fan following on social media. Despite his young age, Theodor Haraldsson has shown great talent lip-syncing and choreographing to some of the chart toppers like ‘DJ Khaled - I'm The One ft. Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper ...’ and Bruno Mars’ ‘That’s What I Like’. His popularity even got him nominated for Sweden’s rising star award at the ‘Big Buzz Awards’. Theo’s favorite muser is Jacob Sartorius and he considers the controversial YouTuber Logan Paul to be one his idols. His musical inspiration ranges from Ed Sheeran to Justin Bieber and that can be clearly seen in his debut single ‘Het’. Like many other musers, Theo has also faced criticism from time to time from many who think that musers are banking on the creativity of actual singers and lip-syncing is not a talent. Ignoring the hatred, the young star has taken his performance to a new level by performing live and has since become a popular muser.
Musical.ly & YouTube fame
Although Theo joined YouTube on November 3, 2014, it wasn’t until 2016, that he started taking social media seriously. His first YouTube video ‘Vlogg: Antligen Mexico!’ was about his trip to Mexico. Later in the year, Theo Haraldsson opened his TikTok account titled ‘Theoz Official’. The first video covering the song ‘Starving’ was a hit. Some of the most popular TikTok covers of Theo Haraldsson are ‘Greenlight’ by Pitbull, ‘Despacito’ by Luis Fonsi, ‘Battle Scars’ by Lupe Fiasco & Guy Sebastian, and ‘Perfect’ by Ed Sheeran. He loves covering hip-hop songs and his wicked dance moves have helped him become a fan favorite. With a subscriber base of more than 2.1 million on TikTok, there seems to be no stopping the Swedish star.
While his primary focus is on TikTok (earlier known as Musical.ly), Theo Haraldsson enjoys a fan following of more than 153k on YouTube as well. This is largely due to his more personal vlogs featuring his family or his fans. He uses it as a platform to have a more personal connection with his fans. ‘Jag Såg Dubbelt På "Grönan"’, ‘Tittar På Era Musicallys!’, and ‘Hänger Med Marcus & Martinus!!’ are some of the most viewed vlogs on his channel, garnering thousands of views. While most of his vlogs are in his native Swedish, many of them have started carrying English subtitles. This was largely due to Theodor Haraldsson’s growing international fan base.
Not limiting his creativity to just performing on songs by other celebrities, he has started venturing into new territories. Theo Haraldsson’s debut Swedish single ‘Het – Theoz’ released on his YouTube channel on June 28, 2018, has gone viral, gaining over 2.7 million views. His musical style in the song is greatly influenced by his love for Latin-American music and hip-hop and he intends on dropping more original songs in the near future.
