Music has always been a central part of TikTok, with so many videos featuring viral songs or “sounds” as they are called on the app.

While songs that are already popular outside of the platform often end up popular on TikTok as well, sometimes it’s the huge viral power of the community that can explode into huge success.

This was the case for country singer Walker Hayes, when his song “Fancy Like” went viral after posting a video of him dancing to the track with his daughter in June 2021, a clip that has over two million likes.
