TikTok has launched many songs that have gone viral over the years, but now it’s testing a feature that lets more people practice their songwriting skills… with some help from AI.
TikTok can create AI songs :
AI Song creates songs from text prompts with help from the large language model Bloom. Users can write out songs on the text field when making a post. TikTok will then suggest AI Song to add sounds to the post, and they can toggle the song’s genre.
The Verge reached out to TikTok for feedback. The function was first spotted last week.
AI Song doesn’t seem to be available to everyone yet, but some TikTok users have already begun playing with it. The results so far are not great. Many are out of tune despite the availability of auto-tuning voices. Take this one from TikTok user Jonah Manzano, who made a song that somehow tried to make the word comedy have more syllables than it needs. Another user, Kristi Leilani, sort of recreated a Britney Spears song but, again, with badly out-of-tune vocals.
What is TikTok AI Song? The new experimental feature, powered by the Bloom LLM, lets creators generate unique songs and lyrics for videos and photos. 🎧 #tiktoknews #newfeature #generativeai #aimusic #aimusicvideo #tiktokai #tiktokaisong #bloom #llm #macinelearning #whatisit #testing♬ I’m an a i – Kristi Leilani
AI-generated songs, however, are not new to TikTok. The now infamous AI Drake and The Weeknd song “Heart on My Sleeve” gained virality on the app. Bad Bunny also criticized people for listening to an AI sound-alike shared on TikTok.
