2019 Analysis: How TikTok Influenced Music Discovery In 2019

In 2019, Lil Nas X captured the No. 18 spot on Forbes’ top-earning country stars, fueled by his viral hit “Old Town Road” and its many remixes. The track, which holds the title as the longest-reigning Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 in the chart’s history, first went viral on the popular social media video app, TikTok.

An influx of TikTok videos emerged inspired by the country/trap mix, which showed users sipping “Yee Yee Juice” before changing into old western outfits when the beat drops. Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road – remix,” re-recorded with Billy Ray Cyrus, exploded on streaming services and climbed the Billboard charts, propelling the Atlanta-native into stardom.

Beneath electrifying Tesla coil disco balls, Marshmello ascended the glowing 360-degree rotating DJ booth shaped like his signature cylindrical mask. His headpiece immediately illuminated in rainbow, mimicking the multi-colored laser beams and special effects scattered throughout the 29,000-square-foot nightclub.

This scene last April kicked off Marshmello’s residency at the new Kaos Dayclub and Nightclub at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, part of a megadeal worth $60 million. 

Even with that massive haul, Marshmello isn’t the highest-paid electronic act in the world—that honor goes to the Chainsmokers, who garnered $46 million in pretax income over the past year. The duo of Drew Taggart and Alex Pall top our annual Electronic Cash Kings list with their biggest earnings year yet, dethroning Calvin Harris after six consecutive years at No. 1.
