Old hits are going viral again thanks to TikTok

Jack Johnson's song 'Upside Down' got millions of new listens when it was used in a TikTok video about TV-purchase scam. Simple Plan’s 'I’m Just a Kid' suddenly powered its way to a platinum certification 15 years after its debut when it was used in a huge TikTok Trend. The same abrupt re-explosion happened with L’Trimm’s 1988 'Cars With the Boom', and of course with Lizzo’s 2017 'Truth Hurts', Rolling Stone says looking at the power of the Chinese social network.
