Tick ​​tock, tick tock, the end of the year is approaching. And so TikTok has become the latest digital platform to reveal the most popular music among its users this year.

As on YouTube, the most popular track in the UK this year was “Body 2” by Tion Wayne & Russ Millions (featuring ArrDee, E1, ZT, Bugzy Malone, Buni, Fivio Foreign and Darkoo). Yeah, not Ed Sheeran like you thought. In fact, in the Top Tracks list, Ed Sheeran only reached number eight with “Bad Habits.”

Sheeran also failed to top the list of artists with the most followers, again ranking number two behind Sam Ryder. And if you don’t know who Sam Ryder is, well, he’s pretty famous on TikTok.

Not everything is new, new, new either. TikTok has seen several older songs bubble up this year. The most popular is “Bills, Bills, Bills” by Destiny’s Child. Well, energy prices are pretty brutal this year. After that is “Rasputin” by Boney M. What a weird world we live in.

Either way, here are some lists to watch and enjoy…
