You Belong With Me and Cruel Summer are some of her songs that you can use on TikTok. Other artists from Universal Music haven’t yet relisted their songs on the platform. 

On January 30, an open letter from Universal Music was published which cited the reason for not listening to their music on TikTok. According to Universal, the app was using music to create their business. Meanwhile, they kept on multiple artists’ music but didn’t provide a fair value to their music. Henceforth, they were violating the copyright laws. 

Apart from that, many TikTok users were creating songs using AI. The AI-generated songs used the voices of artists without their consent. The users will record video in their voice but use AI models to change their sound. For instance, you recorded a video and now want it to sound like The Weekend or Drake. You will use AI models and change the sound. Then, you will publish it to make the video viral.
