How to Add and Include Music With Your TikTok Video Posts

  • Open the TikTok app and tap the plus (+) icon to create a new video. After recording, tap “Sounds” to browse TikTok’s music library and preview songs. Select a song to add it to your video.
  • You can trim the song clip and choose which section to include. Tap “Post” when done.
  • To upload a pre-recorded video from your camera roll, tap “Upload”, select your video, then tap “Sounds” to add music the same way.

Copyright and Licensing

  • Music in TikTok’s library is licensed for use in videos. This does not cover downloading or using the songs elsewhere.
  • Uploading your own music could get your video taken down unless you own rights to the song. Use original compositions or properly licensed music.
  • TikTok has automatic copyright detection. If found, your video may be muted or removed.

Promoting Music on TikTok

  • Focus on creating short, catchy TikTok-friendly song snippets that inspire creative videos.
  • Encourage user-generated content by asking fans to create videos featuring your song.
  • Use hashtags and viral trends to increase discovery. Consider paid TikTok promotion services.
  • Analyze performance data to optimize your video and music for the TikTok audience.
