El Caballito

As tradition goes, we must start a TikTok trends article with a dance challenge. This one is to an energetic Spanish song called “El Caballito” by Colombian singer Farina. The TikTok video is of Farina herself dancing to the song with impressive moves that TikTokkers will have a lot of fun replicating. The video already has 1.2 million likes and there are 63.5k videos created to this song.


Celebremos que soy la artista del mes en Tiktok ! 💜 #ELCABALLITO 🐴🐎🐴🐎 #nuevamusica #trending #Trend

♬ El Caballito – Fariana

Even guys are doing the dance:

Million Dollar Baby

The second dance challenge is Tommy Richman’s “Million Dollar Baby”, which has 4.1 million videos. 

​​But people are not only dancing to this song, there are a lot of different types of videos posted to this sound. For instance, this guy is just going to get a haircut and asking their partner if they’ll miss the long hair:

Or these adorable puppies who are living their best lives in the city:

Nasty Gurl

This song only has 22.3k videos, so if you are a TikTok creator and you want to jump on the trend, now is the moment to do it.:


This Been Replaying In My Head All Week 😂😂😂. @Shaa🦇 @Sidney🤍 #ling #lavishliyah #fyp #trending #trendingnow #viral #lingxfriends

We don’t know the full context of this video, but it’s supposedly about a successful skincare routine?

’80s Dance

My absolute favorite TikTok dance trend right now, which is also popular on other social media, is the ’80s dance trend. Kids ask their parents how they used to dance in the ’80s to a very ’80s-sounding dance song (Smalltown Boy – Bronski Beat), and the videos are absolutely fabulous. You can tell by their unleashed happiness the ’80s were such a different time and people had so much fun. Not to mention some moms and dads had (and still have) some amazing moves!

I Don’t Like It

This trend uses an original sound by Kylie Jenner where she uses the aging filter and says “I don’t like it, I don’t like it at all”.

While some people also use this sound to recreate the same kind of video using the aging filter, which we’ll talk about in a bit, the sound is also used by TikTokkers to talk about other things they don’t like, using text captions to showcase what they’re dissatisfied with while mouthing the words “I don’t like it, I don’t like it at all”. For example, this woman doesn’t like how her man does certain things around the house:

Aged Filter

As I was saying above with Kylie’s “I don’t like it” sound, there is a very popular aged filter going around TikTok. The filter shows how you would look old, with wrinkles, a weaker jawline and sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, and grey hair. Some dermatologists say it’s accurate, while other experts say it’s hard to say with accuracy what someone will look like, because there are a lot of factors at play, like genetics, how well you take care of your skin, sun exposure, and other lifestyle factors. However, Gen Zers and Millennials are freaking out when seeing themselves so aged, which is perhaps what this filter’s purpose is, to help companies sell more anti-aging cosmetics.


Try this filter to see you aged to 75

This one from Meghan and Jack was hilarious:


I did NOT expect his to look like THAT…😅 #meghanandjack

Hands In

This popular TikTok trend is very cute. Two people put their hands on top of the other in the presence of their pet and then wait for their reaction. Most pets will place their paws on top of their owners’ hands and it’s just adorable.


Europapa was written by Dutch musician Joost Klein for the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 and it’s still a vibe:

Men’s Mental Health

Raising mental health awareness has been more and more prevalent on social media these past few years, and this trend makes no exception. Right now we’re taking care of our men, as June is men’s mental health awareness month. So many men suffer in silence when they don’t need to and it’s important to raise awareness and offer them support through any means. This is a serious TikTok trend, so if you find the subject too heavy for you right now, skip to the next trend.


Happy Mens Mental Health Month ❤️

I Feel So Ugly

Women are in the bad habit of putting themselves down and spewing out negative thoughts about themselves and their appearance, and it’s so important to be aware of our patterns and learn to love ourselves as we are, where we are at that point in time. None of us would talk to other people the way we talk to ourselves, and we especially wouldn’t talk like that to our own child. This video puts things into perspective.

Go London

Moving to more lighthearted videos, how funny is this cat who seems to be saying “Go London, I will go London”? And of course, somebody had to put that onto music and make a remix.

Nail Transition

Transitions of all kind are extremely popular on TikTok, and among others, nail transitions are trending right now. Show your naked nails, paint them with nail polish or get them done at a salon, and then make a transition to your new nails.


The Netflix show “Bridgerton” is very hype right now, as they just came out with a new season (season 3) in May, with a second part to come out in the middle of June, so fans are hyperventilating right now and trying to get their hands on anything Bridgerton-y they can. Lucky for them, the cast of Bridgerton is active on TikTok, and Florence Hunt recently posted this video with the crew:

Oh Dang It!

This sound is trending right now and it says “Let’s go gambling!” and then repeats “Oh dang it!” many times, so it’s suitable for all kinds of videos where the creator wants to portray something that seems like a good idea at first, but then they start seeing all the flaws or drawbacks of their plan. For instance, this creator is excited about not having a typical 9 to 5 job but then starts listing all the responsibilities one has as an adult.


Wouldn’t change it for the wolrd though 🩷 ✨ Trend Alert ✨ 3.6.24 #trendingsound #trendingsounds #trending #trendalert #tiktoktips #tiktokgrowth


Or this guy wants to go hang out with his friends, and then remembers he lives in a small town and the prospects are not all that great.

Then, this young man is excited about dating, but all these negative aspects start showing up.

Photo Hacker

When someone hacks your cloud and asks a ransom for your photos, they’d better check out that gallery first. This funny TikTok trend shows users getting hacked and then they show their photo galleries filled with innocent photos that nobody would pay a dime to recover. No risky photos, no Internet shame. The background for this trend is the Greek song “Sirtaki”.


This song “Barbaras Rhubarb Bar” has been released for a few months, but it’s still going strong, and I had to share with you this original underwater dance challenge:

Reasons Why You Should Never…

This trend is all about creators showing why they regret doing something or why they think you shouldn’t do something. The videos show the text “Reaons I regret…” or “3 reasons you should never…” continued with what it is they regret, but usually they don’t name the reasons and just let the videos speak for themselves. For instance, this video says “Reasons I regret having my bridesmaids choose their own dresses”, but doesn’t state the specific reasons. However, given how busy and sparkly some of their dresses are, and how close to white some of the pink dresses are, it’s not hard to see that the bride kind of gets lost in the equation.

Tell Ur Girlfriend

Another very popular TikTok dance trend is to the song “Tell Ur GF” by Lay Bankz, which I also mentioned in our sexy TikTok Trends article, since it’s a dance with a lot of booty shaking.


This TikTok dance challenge uses the song “Jump” by Tyla & Gunna & Skillibeng. Even Charli D’Amelio, one of the most famous TikTokers, posted her own version of it:
