TikTok is a massive platform. That’s great for you if you love an unlimited stream of content to get you through your day. But when it comes to music, the platform is trying o step up. It wants to help independent artists get found with its SoundOn platform, but now it wants to help brands to get their own original music too!

Brands that want to feature original music in their own content, whether advertising or memetic content, can now make use TikTok’s partnership with six companies in its “Sound Partners” programme.

A report by Music Ally says these six companies provide a library of cleared-for-copyright music for commercial purposes in two groups.

Custom sound’ tracks will be provided by KARM, MassiveMusic and The Elements Music, while ‘subscription sound’ will be provided by Epidemic Sound, Songtradr and UnitedMasters.

The “subscription” is in the name because it’s based on a subscription basis. If a brand wants to use music in the “Subscription sound” group, they pay a subscription to the three companies in that group for unlimited access to the background music!
