Blame it on the millennials on our team, but HookSounds has arrived on TikTok. We are jumping on board of the most popular app right now to provide the soundtrack your amazing TikTok videos deserve. Be sure to follow us at @hooksounds and get your content ready!
Let’s start with the basics. TikTok is a short-form, video-sharing app that allows users to create and share 60-second videos.
Around 689 million TikTok users internationally are on TikTok every month as active users. Valued at $50 billion, only in 2020 TikTok’s revenue was over $1 billion.
Especially in 2020, due to the pandemic, TikTok grew enormously and went from a GenZ app to one of the most popular ones around. Everyone, from teenagers to brands, is creating content in it, going from dances to tips and beyond.
Whether you are dancing or showing a day in the life, TikTok allows users to select songs cleared for copyright holders’ commercial use. You can either select from the library of sounds the app offers or edit your video on an external app and upload it there.
We recommend you save the sounds you like when checking your FYP, even if you won’t use them right now. Since TikTok’s content is so ephemeral and hard to find once you’ve watched it, it is always better to be safe than sorry and save your fave sounds.
According to representatives from the app, copyrighted music appears on the app because TikTok pays royalties for the licenses, this is why you can find famous songs there. So technically, you can’t just use any song you want, even if you edit outside of the app.
You can risk infringing their copyright policies, and your videos will probably be either silenced or taken down (just like it happens on Instagram for example).

Royalties: the issue that every single content creator out there struggles with. Whether it is images, videos or music, royalties are one of the most important things when it comes to creating content to be released. This topic is very complicated, so we will try to make it easy and simple to understand since royalties […]
Over the years social media has become a huge part of day-to-day life, where everyday people are posting videos showing their activities, sharing art, or using it as a business to promote and sell products or services. And with this movement came a huge improvement in iPhones camera definition and power, being able to shoot […]
You’ve probably tuned into a live stream at least once. You also probably critiqued, consciously or subconsciously, the content you were viewing.
