The Brief: TikTokers are presenting information about themselves with the invitation to viewers "let's be mutuals."
The “let’s be mutuals” TikTok trend is set to a cover of the song “Some Things Abt Me” by CHIS, performed by Asher Douglas. The lyrics go “my name, my age, my favorite color…my height, my sign, do I have a lover?”
TikToker @jacobaalan created this trend in January 2021. Videos start with a text-to-speech recording that says “let’s be mutuals” before people show off their name, age, favorite color, astrological sign, and relationship status to the corresponding lyrics.
At the time of writing, there are over 179,ooo TikTok videos featuring this sound, and big-name stars like Trisha Paytas and Madi Monroe have participated in the trend.
