You can now create AI generated songs on TikTok, but you may want to avoid doing so…

TikTok, renowned for catapulting numerous songs into viral stardom, is now venturing into the realm of artificial intelligence with a novel feature named AI Song. Leveraging the powerful language model Bloom, this feature generates songs based on textual prompts provided by users. When crafting a post, users can input their lyrics into the text field, prompting TikTok to suggest the incorporation of AI Song to infuse the post with auditory elements, allowing users to tweak the song’s genre, choosing from options like pop, hip-hop, or EDM. 

Barney Hooper, spokesperson for TikTok, clarified that despite being termed an AI song generator, the name is provisional, subject to change as the feature undergoes testing. The music integrated into AI Song is drawn from an existing catalog within the platform, spanning genres such as pop, hip-hop, and EDM. 

While AI Song has not yet reached universal availability, some TikTok users have begun to experiment with it, yielding a variety of outcomes. Despite the availability of auto-tuning vocals, certain users have encountered challenges, exemplified by instances where words seemed unnaturally stretched, as seen in a creation by TikTok user Jonah Manzano. Another user, Kristi Leilani, attempted to recreate a Britney Spears song but encountered issues with severely out-of-tune vocals. You can see for yourself here –

Verdict: TikTok has confirmed that AI Song remains in the testing phase, with the potential for a name change, and the music utilised is sourced from a pre-saved catalog within the platform. We therefore think we should allow the test to be carried out before you deep dive into making a musical masterpiece.
