The Beatles have officially arrived on TikTok. The iconic rock group’s account has been launched on the short video platform. It is called @TheBeatles. It was created on Friday and has crossed 180,000 followers over the weekend. Now, TikTok creators can officially soundtrack their videos with 36 hit songs from the Beatles.
The official additions on the short video sharing app have come after the Fab Four had already been on TikTok with solo material and newer songs. In August 2020, the late John Lennon’s account was set up by his estate. It was a marketing push at about the time the legend would have celebrated his 80th birthday. Paul McCartney debuted at the end of the same year. Ringo Starr’s estate allowed his music on TikTok in July 2021 while George Harrison’s estate was the last to allow his music to be on TikTok just over two months ago in August, this year.
The official page of the Beatles on TikTok has also come before the a major reissue of “Let It Be” and a few weeks ahead of a three part documentary “Get Back” by Peter Jackson. Disney+ will air the documentary by the end of November, three days in a row, according to a report by Forbes.
Meanwhile, according to Variety, creators can use 12 songs from “Let It Be” including the super hit title song, “Get Back” and “Across the Universe.” The page will also feature tracks such as the popular “I’ve Got A Feeling” duet by Lennon and McCartney and the last song they recorded as a group, written by George Harrison—“I Me Mine.”
Some of the other super duper hits by the Beatles on TikTok include
Love Me Do
I Want To Hold Your Hand
The Long and Winding Road
The rock band from Liverpool created Beatlemania for decades together and now they are getting ready to appeal to a much younger audience in ways that are different. When they performed live, they never would have thought that some day, their iconic songs would form part of a short video on TikTok that would go viral and have the potential to reach a billion viewers.
