Bella Poarch ‘M to the B’ was TikTok’s top video of 2020


If you’d asked us to guess the most viral video on TikTok this year, we’d probably have said the skateboarding Fleetwood Mac guy. But no, @420Doggface208’s cranberry-swigging clip is playing second fiddle to a video based on… Blackpool grime! Well, influencer Bella Poarch’s take on ‘M to the B’, a rap originally by British teenager Millie B, which enjoyed a new lease of life on TikTok this year.

Poarch’s video has been watched 528.8m times on TikTok since she posted it in mid-August, and in turn that has spurred more than 7.4m videos using the audio clip – actual Millie B popped up to join in, with a video that has been watched 40.4m times.

TikTok’s end-of-year roundup also includes a playlist of 10 of the biggest songs of the year, starting with Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo’s ‘Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)’.
