The Brief: For the month of September 2020, here's what's hot on TikTok including terminology, memes, and dance challenges.
August was host to a range of TikTok trends and challenges, alongside news that the app could be banned in the United States. While the status of TikTok remaining accessible to U.S. users is currently up in the air, TikTokers are making the most out of their present time on the app. Coming into September 2020, here are the best TikTok trends to try and some updates about what’s been popular on the app.
In addition to challenges, dances, POV’s, comment trends, and comedy skits, TikTokers have been experimenting with new duet features, creating more elaborate duets and even tricking people with the reverse duet trend. Popular songs on the app from the month of August include Backyard Boy, WAP (of course), Toy by Netta, Bulletproof by La Roux, and others.
