Want to use trending audio but don't have the time to find them yourself? You're in luck! We update this blog every Friday with 5 options for trending audio on Instagram and 5 options for trending audio on TikTok.

What is trending audio?

Trending audio refers to sound clips, music tracks, or audio snippets that gain popularity and widespread usage on social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram.

Because these audios often influence user-generated videos and become associated with specific trends, challenges, or memes, Instagram and TikTok take them seriously when ranking content.

This week's trending audio for Instagram Reels from May 19-24 and how to use them

I’m looking for a man in finance - @megan_boni

This sound has made its way over to Instagram reels. The original was made by @girl_on_couch on TikTok and later remixed by @djhunnybee. However, instead of highlighting a man in finance they replace the lyrics with who they want to attract. Take a look at @rejoiceandblossom take on the trend.

3, 2, 1…GO! - @alexalouisewilliams

This trend has quickly been taking over the internet and has finally crossed the border from TikTok to Instagram reels. Everyone just spreading positivity by dancing. Not everything has to be 100% serious all the time. You can simply spread vibes. Look at how @alexalouisewilliams found her spark again.

Tempting but…no, thank you - @stanforcreators

What is something people ask you that you don’t really care for? You can highlight it by using this sound. All you have to do is lip-sync the audio. Make sure to add the text on the screen. You can take a look at @stanforcreators for more inspiration. 

Is the Boston Marathon longer than the LA Marathon? - @passthatpuss

Use this trending sound to answer a very common question people ask that has an obvious answer. You can record it with another person. Person 1 lipsyncs “Not to be stupid but Is the Boston Marathon longer than the LA Marathon?”. Make sure to add an overlay of your question. Then person 2 can answer by lipsyncing “No, all marathons are the same length.” For this clip you want to add the answer to the question as an overlay. @risingtidesocial did a great job promoting their services in their version.

A croissant won’t solve all of your problems - @prettylittlefawn

If you are a bakery or coffee shop, THIS is the perfect sound for you. However, that doesn’t mean that any other product-based business cannot use it. To record this trend all you need is 1 clip where you show your product when it says “A croissant won’t solve all of your problems.” If you sell anything other than a croissant, make sure to change the text overlay to your product. When it says “But two might do the trick.” you can add a second product. @prescocoffeeco were able to promote their coffees in their reel.

This week's trending audio for TikTok from May 19-24 and how to use them

I am looking for a job in marketing - Mukti Organics

This sound is a remix on the remix of “I am looking for a man in finance” by @djhunnybee and @girl_on_couch the marketing girlies have taken in over with new lyrics saying “I am looking for a job in marketing, stressful anxiety”. You can simply have fun while recording with this audio. Look at how much fun Mukti Organics is having by jamming to this song.

What I have been looking for - North Valley Group

Did we all set up performances when we were little to gain adult’s favour? If you did, this trend is perfect to exercise that muscle again. Take a friend or a colleague and some fake microphones and start recording yourself lipsyncing to this High School Musical song. You can later add “Me and [insert person] trying to distract [insert person] from [x]”. @oglivysociallab did an Emmy-worthy performance.

Thumbelina - Teddy’s Dance Company

Would it be TikTok if no one tried to recreate a dance? Everyone is recreating the Thumbelina dance and you might want to get on it too. As text, you want to make sure to add the name, age and dance type. Here’s a wholesome video by @lindseyryersonn.

3, 2, 1…GO! - James Jones

This trend has quickly been taking over the internet. Everyone just spreading positivity by dancing. Not everything has to be 100% serious all the time. You can simply spread vibes. Look at how James Jones is simply spreading joy in their video.

I’m looking for a man in finance - @djhunnybee

This sound has known many transformations since @girl_on_couch posted it. Now there is a remix by @djhunnybee that is going viral. If you are in a corporate setting you can use it to highlight your finance department. Take a look at @duolingo’s take on the trend.
