How does TikTok distribution work?

TikTok has over 1 billion monthly active users – giving your music plenty of opportunity to be recognised!

It couldn’t be easier to get your music on the app, simply make sure that you select TikTok as one of your chosen stores when you create your release on RouteNote!

When your music is distributed to TikTok, you receive earnings when it’s used in any video. This means that RouteNote users are paid on the video usage and not for the views on these videos.

TikTok will start the identification preview of your track from 29 seconds in, but you can reach out to us at if you want to request a specific time of your track for the identification preview to start.
