As TikTok becomes one of the largest influences on pop culture, the power it holds on the music industry is undeniable. It’s a place where trends flourish and musicians can become an instant success overnight. One of these developments is the overall establishment of a distinct “hyperpop” genre.
Hyperpop is described as “experimental music that pushes pop themes and tropes to parody, with some dance/electronic undertones.” While mainstream media has shied away from giving hyperpop musicians airtime, TikTok has allowed these artists to expand their followings and play a key role in the foundation of this genre.
In this playlist you’ll find some of the most popular hyperpop musicians boosted on TikTok, as well as others who have yet to go viral by virtue of this influential social media platform. While this music may be unconventional, it has found a home in these corners of the internet (and this playlist) and we hope these songs filled with compelling sounds peak your interest.
