This track released in March has gone viral on TikTok of Disiz and Damso.
It was crowned gold single this week. The consecration fell this week: with 15 million equivalent streams, the Meet by Disiz and Damso has just been certified gold single. A triumph that crowns no less than four weeks at the top of the French Top Single … no doubt thanks to a boost from TikTok.
The figures spoke very quickly: released on March 17, the track entered the fifth place on the Top and only took a week to top the other hits of the moment, in particular, Quickdraw by Aya Nakamura and Damso, Filtered of Tamil and sweetly of Soolking.
This piece with a surprising construction, which begins as a ballad to tinge with a funk influence from one second to the next, is taken from Love Disiz’s latest album. Meet allows the interpreter to freak out to get his first number 1 according to Interlude.
By bringing together two big names in French-speaking rap, Meet had every chance of prancing at the top of sales. But like a large part of the hits of recent years, it has also benefited from a surprise exposure thanks to TikTok, where Internet users have widely acclaimed it.
Since the release of the song, nearly 40,000 videos using the song were posted on the platform. As often in this kind of case, nothing explains why this title rather than another has generated such enthusiasm from Internet users, but they have been tens of thousands to publish videos of themselves doing playback on one of the verses of Disiz.
So much so that Disiz himself has tried it. The rapper has created an account on the application to also publish a video in which he plays back to his own song.
For any artist, a resonance on TikTok is a promise of success: each cover of the song generates views among the application’s young audience. In the case of a repercussion like that of Meet, the audience can be counted in the millions. Thus since the advent of the application in 2020, the majority of summer hits were tracks that first found success on TikTok.
And the success is undeniable: nearly a month and a half after its release, Meet is still at the top of the Spotify Top 100. Enough to promise him a bright future for this summer.
