The past 18 months saw a surge of people turning to TikTok for entertainment and escape, whilst access to the outside world was restricted during the pandemic. Back in May 2020 the app had been downloaded two billion times. There are now over one billion people on TikTok each month around the world.

TikTok is also fast becoming the number one place for people to discover new music online. For artists with music on the TikTok library, one billion is a whole load of new potential listeners when their tracks are used in videos on the app. But how do you get your music on TikTok in the first place?
