As 2022 comes close to its end, TikTok has released its annual year-end report which includes a list of the top five popular songs that soundtracked the year on the platform in Pakistan.
“We’re honoured to celebrate our global community who shaped this year’s trends, shared new ideas, learned from one another and turned their passions into careers and livelihoods throughout 2022,” said Vanessa Pappas, Chief Operating Officer, TikTok, in a press release.
“It’s been truly inspiring to see over a billion people around the world show their creativity and come together to experience joy and find a sense of belonging on TikTok,” she added.
