TikTok is the leading destination for short-form mobile video.

Their mission is to inspire and enrich people’s lives by offering a home for creative expression and an experience that is genuine, joyful, and positive.

TikTok is one of the most downloaded apps in the world. It allows users to upload 15-second videos to a scrollable feed, using background music from their diverse library of songs. Additionally, TikTok’s “Sound Selection” page within the app has discovery features like genre playlists and “Hashtag Challenges” that encourage users to get creative with music and engage with trending topics. These discovery features have made TikTok a viral platform for artists.

TikTok does not block access to their service from any territory, so it is available worldwide.


When you distribute to TikTok, you’ll be giving hundreds of millions of users permission to use your music in their short-form videos, and we will collect revenue quarterly based on usage. Please note that your music is monetized on TikTok based on each new video creation, not per stream of those videos.

When a subscriber creates new content using your music, you get paid a proportionate share of TikTok’s subscription revenue per month calculated on terms set out in our blanket agreement with the store. Payments will fluctuate each month, depending on the amount of subscription revenue generated and how often your music was used in unique video instances.
