#5: Sweetest Pie - Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion

#4: Right Where You Left Me - Taylor Swift

But until that happens, you can get your Swift fix by joining millions of TikTok users and giving “Right Where You Left Me” a listen.
#3: I Like You (A Happier Song) - Post Malone feat. Doja Cat
TikTok’s all about sharing things you like and sharing happy moments, so it’s no surprise that Post Malone’s lates song is getting a lot of airtime backing videos of people enjoying everything from smoked BBQ brisket to new iPhones to just spending time with friends. And while Post Malone’s currently touring the USA, Canada and Australia, we’re expecting to see him in the UK again very soon.
#2: As It Was - Harry Styles
Harry Styles is touring the UK next year, and he’s already sold out Wembley Stadium on multiple nights. His song has been the TikTok soundtrack to everything from gig videos (from people who already have Harry Styles tickets) to dances and - oddly - vets petting very cute dogs. That’s TikTok for you!
#1: About Damn Time - Lizzo
Featuring in well over 2m videos, Lizzo’s biggest hit is TikTok’s biggest tune of 2022. And with Lizzo’s new album Special now on shelves, it’s no surprise that she’s touring next year. You can find Lizzo tickets for a whole host of American venues, with a UK and European tour expected to be announced very soon.
