How to Add your Music to TikTok videos

TikTok is the world's fastest-growing social video platform, with millions of users across the globe. It's been responsible for lots of recent viral music sensations. It’s where Lil Nas X’s Billboard Hot 100 record-breaker “Old Town Road” found its initial audience and took off as a viral hit.

Designed for the global creators, TikTok allows users to quickly and easily create unique short videos to share with friends and the world. 

Want to create a video in TikTok using your song?

It’s pretty simple. Here’s how: 

1. Get your music on TikTok — MusicDigi delivers songs to TikTok (as well as Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and 150+ other platforms) as part of our digital distribution service.

2. Open TikTok and click the + icon — This will open the camera function so you can record video in the TikTok app.

3. Tap the “Add Sound” option, and you will see the Sound page. You can find all the available sounds and songs that TikTok has to offer.

4. Click “Trim” — Once you’ve selected the song, you’ll want to swipe to the correct 15 second snippet. To do that, hit the “Trim” icon, which looks like a musical note being cut by scissors.

5. Swipe through the audio — Once you’ve got the timing right, it’s time to record!

6. Select the “Record” button to start filming the video. Finish filming, then add the effects and filters you want. You can also slow down or speed up the video.
