Everyone on TikTok knows that the platform is a musician’s dream come true – according to TikTok, over 70 artists who broke on the app were signed by major labels. With over one billion users worldwide, the app is a gold mine for undiscovered talent.
SoStereo artist ASTN makes music that embodies elements of jazz and R&B, creating what he has coined ‘Soulful Pop’. His music career began in 2017 with the release of EP ‘Tell Your Friends’, ultimately kickstarting his fanbase. In November 2019, ASTN took to TikTok, posting music related content.
Last year, ASTN began posting covers of the most popular songs with an R&B twist – and his spin on Billie Eilish’s ‘Happier Than Ever’ swept TikTok users off their feet. With over 8 million likes and nearly 62 million views, the video is a true internet sensation.
