TikTok: The leading app for viral videos and music trends

TikTok hosts the throne as the most popular non-game app and is one of the Top video apps driving music discovery in strategic markets such as APAC.

The app launched a music streaming service named TikTok Music in Brazil and Indonesia in early July and went live in other powerful music markets such as Australia, Singapore, and Mexico a few weeks later.

For many years, TikTok has been the go-to platform for discovering new music amongst Gen Z, Alpha, and Millennials.

It’s become the space where users create viral challenges and trends.

Record labels use TikTok to bring their artists into the spotlight and promote songs from their catalogs ahead of their releases.

Musicians use the platform to connect with fans and build a community, while creators and influencers use licensed music from TikTok’s library to enrich their videos, encouraging interaction and user-generated content.

All of this presents a good opportunity for music promotion.

Vevo: The leading music video network globally

With over 150 million daily viewers and thanks to its publishing partnership with YouTube, Vevo stands as the leading music video network globally, providing fans across the world with premium content, including official music videos, live performances, and innovative programming.

Vevo’s massive audience offers unparalleled exposure and opportunities for labels and artists seeking to reach fans from all over the world.

The video service provides several monetization options through advertising. Record labels and artists can expand revenues from ads appearing alongside their music videos.

Vevo has enhanced its promotional and commercial value by partnering with the artificial intelligence (AI) company Hive to launch a data science capability that labels the visual components of the channel’s music video library.

Vevo previously used AI to group music videos by mood. With the new capabilities, music videos in Vevo are processed and elements of interest like themes, logos, or objects are tagged with keywords and then grouped.

This enables brands to create more relevant CTV programming and ad targeting with similar visuals within music videos.

This option can help labels and artists to make their musical content easier to find and promote on the channel.
