From TikTok to Mainstream
(I feel like I lost my ability to write anything compelling)
I was scrolling through TikTok a few weeks ago and saw a video of a guy singing in his bedroom and during the song, he made a no-look shot on one of those basketball goals that hang on the back of doors.
The song was catchy so I went to his profile and he's created a lot of TikTok content.
Anyways, it seemed like that video started popping up everywhere. I saw it reposted on several Instagram accounts and a couple times on Twitter.
From my knowledge, he wasn't super popular or anything prior to that video. Now, the song now has a music video and has been curated by Spotify playlists.
It's just crazy to me that artists (and anybody else) can change their careers simply by posting content.
If you have a passion and a some talent, you could be one video away from a whole new life.
