TikTok has announced the tracks and artists that basically owned TikTok in 2023

Here are the most popular TikTok artists whose songs took over our ears and For You feeds in 2023

Over the last five years, TikTok has kinda become the go-to spot for discovering new music and a playground for artists of all levels – from the underdogs to the big shots.

From foolproof recipes to hilarious skits, old-school jams, and thriving small businesses – the TikTok fam kept doing their thing, creating, connecting, and just being real throughout 2023.

Down under in Australia, we had everything from camel encounters to frogs doing their thing, outback guides strutting their stuff, and even some amazing impersonations.

It was a wild mix, featuring chefs showing off, sports stars doing their thing, and a bunch more.

TikTok, in a nutshell, is where artists and songwriters gather to make magic happen, pushing tunes and trends faster than you can blink.

Aussie artists stole the show, with global superstar Troye Sivan, the much-loved popstar/pixie Peach PRC crowned Music Creator of the Year 2023, and our very own ‘Free Broccoli’ legend, Go-Jo.
