TikTok creators show that art can come from anywhere with the #AlbumCover trend. Take a deeper look at the content with this new feature in addition to top videos, creators, songs, and effects.
Current Top Trend: #AlbumCover
This week, the TikTok community sparked a trending format in which participation came with a "Parental Advisory" sticker. Built primarily around a remix of tracks from Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West, #AlbumCover proved that truly anything can be an album cover.
The concept was extremely straightforward: users shared video footage (typically from their camera roll), before freezing on a specific frame and then cutting to the same frame fitted to an album cover with a fictional title. While the trend initially started with college-aged users sharing moments with friends, the flexibility of the format meant that it could be applied to any interests or content genres. Within days from the initial set of videos, users from all of TikTok's communities developed their own unique versions of the #AlbumCover trend, ranging from filmmakers to pop culture fans and even some favorite sports organizations. Whether it was a photo from a historic moment, or just a personal snapshot from friends, the trend gained steamed by showcasing how even the subtlest moments can be incredible when given the right spotlight.
Incredible TikTok moments come when communities find ways to interact with one another across a wide spectrum of different interests. And moments where users can create videos based on footage they've already captured are fantastic at drawing content from a diverse group of creators.
