The trends on TikTok change now and then. There are a variety of effects that you can use for your videos, and you have to act quickly for you want to do that when they’re still trendy. However, there’s one thing that never goes out of fashion. Slow-motion videos are among the most popular every year. It’s hard to find a TikTok influencer who hasn’t at least had one slow-motion video.
In light of that, and the effect’s popularity, we’ve compiled for you the ultimate TikTok slow motion videos, followed by instructions on how you can make your own slow-motion videos.
The Ultimate Slow Motion Songs
If you ever search for the ultimate TikTok slow motion compilation, you may get different results. Lots of users create these compilations, and they may have added some of their favorite videos. However, some of the songs are always the same. They’re so famous that even those who don’t have TikTok may have seen or heard them many times.
The song that has yet to decrease in popularity since its initial release in 2017 goes like this:
“One kiss is all it takes,
Fallin’ in love with me,
Yes, you guessed it. It’s the famous collaboration of Dua Lipa and Calvin Harris called One Kiss. The original song is fast-paced, but for some reason it became perhaps even popular in slow motion.
Here’s a list of the most popular slow-motion songs on TikTok ever:
- One Kiss – Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa
- Alors on Dance – Stromae
- Silence – Marshmello
- Magenta Riddim – DJ Snake
- Yeah – Usher
- Kream – Iggy Azalea
- Dark Horse – Katty Perry
- Dusk Till Dawn –Zayn feat Sia
- Diamonds – Rihanna
- God is a Woman – Ariana Grande
You’ve probably seen hundreds of people dancing to these songs. Some of the best interpretations include the funny ones where the users surprise their friends who don’t know they’re being filmed. Other popular slow-motion videos are those with parents who are trying to learn the moves.
Slow Motion Compilation of 2020
We’ve seen in this year alone so many slow motions that went on to become big hits. You can browse them by the hashtag #slowmotion and see whether you’ve missed any of them. As the year isn’t over yet, there isn’t an official compilation of the best slow motions yet. However, we already know some of the songs that will make it to the list.
- Partition – Beyonce
- Relationship – Young Thug
- Lay it Down – Lloyd
- Get Busy – Sean Paul
- Panda – Desiigner
The funny thing is that usually only one part of the song becomes popular. It could be a refrain, but it’s often some random part of the song. Sometimes even TikTok users don’t know the name of the song.
