Top 10 TikTok Trends in Malaysia in 2021
Hi SushiVid members,
Even though we’re only just entering 2021, in our previous blog post, through careful investigation, we had some predictions. In Malaysia in 2021, the needs and trends of influencer marketing are kicking off. Come to our blog to read this year’s compelling content. We discuss mass posting, live streaming, and more.
In this blog, we would like to update you on the 2021 Malaysian TikTok demand and trends. TikTok was born in recent years.according toGlobal Times, With a population of nearly 630 million in Southeast Asia, TikTok has almost 200 million users. TikTok launched in 2016, but with 500 million monthly active users, it is no less than Instagram. Instagram, with more than 1 billion monthly active users, is in sixth place. It only took TikTok four years to get to the point where it doesn’t fall behind Instagram. Therefore, we highly recommend brands to start using TikTok for their influencer marketing campaigns.
During the 2020 Movement Control Order in Malaysia, TikTok showed its potential to influence the public. In an instant, it was as if everyone started creating content on TikTok at home. One of the most widely circulated trends is the #NoRush phenomenon. Everyone knows we use the No Rush song for our before and after makeup TikTok videos. Before it evolved into other versions such as pilot version, brother version, even SushiVid also made the following No Rush challenge video belonging to them.

We forecast and exemplify several trends and demands that Malaysia will face in 2021.
1. TikTok 对 嘴
Mouth-to-mouth isn’t limited to songs. With TikTok, you can match any song, movie, news, drama, or any other video on the social media platform. TikTok removes the limitations of Musical.ly. People can use mouth-to-mouth for entertainment. Influencers can now use funny speech to mouth-to-mouth and can also create content in the speech. One of the influencers in our Watsons campaign, Imalraz, has a measly 2,000 TikTok followers, but he got 70,000 TikTok views at the Watsons TikTok campaign.
In the TikTok video above, Imalraz used a remix of Taylor Swift’s song “Trouble” to promote Watsons’ buy-one-get-one campaign. That TikTok video got 3,000 likes and didn’t use any of the hashtags suggested for you. Don’t be afraid to get inspired for your TikTok content. Search for any funny hashtag and reuse it in your content. The great thing about TikTok is that you can tag the original in the voice and it won’t cause any copyright disputes.
2. TikTok dance
One of the reasons why TikTok has become so popular is because the simple and hilarious dance moves quickly went viral. TikTok offers a movie clip feature that lets the music play in a slower way. This method even ordinary people can do any dance. On the other hand, it provides the opportunity for professional dancers to become influencers. Therefore, most of the internet celebrities in Malaysia who have many fans are usually dancers or dancers.
Mind you, Jason Derulo is the king of TikTok dancers. His publicity team used his dance skills to promote his single, Savage Love. The song has 81 million views on YouTube.

That song became so popular because other influencers and stars worked together to increase the popularity of the song.
Some local artists such as SonaOne have also run similar promotions for his debut song Bomba. During the last movement control order, SonaOne released his single Bomba, which gained popularity thanks to the power of some internet celebrities and the imitation dance of stars. The song has 700,000 views on YouTube. The song was quickly reprised by Joe Flizzow’s Def Jem Records rapper. Soon, the film broke through 400,000 views.
3. TikTok 迷 因
For those of you who don’t understand, according to Wikipedia, a meme is a thought, behavior, or style that is transmitted from person to person in a culture by imitating it, usually to convey the specific phenomenon or meaning the meme represents.
Here is an example of a TikTok meme:

This video is classified as a TikTok meme that needs to be funny or relevant to the public. These kinds of TikTok videos will bring your brand to the hearts of the people.
However, don’t be too direct that you’re selling a product. It might be possible to provide influencers with the inspiration behind the meme, and there are scenarios where your brand or product audience can come in handy. A simple example You find out in class that your period is coming, you are very nervous, but you remember that you have Sophie tampons in your school bag.
This can be sensible and give your product an unobstructed view to the audience.
4. Informational TikTok
TikTok is also a platform for the masses to search for advice, history and other news. UNICEF has over 300,000 followers on TikTok. Some doctors and experts have huge followings on TikTok. Society trusts them to provide accurate information updates and value the knowledge shared by experts.
Dr Harang has over 1.9 million followers for sharing health tips.

Information is not just serious facts. Since TikTok is a reliable platform to spread the word, brands should ask influencers to use their creativity to create content for the brand or product.
Skincare brand The Ordinary was trending last year because it used several influencers to promote the benefits of using their products. People frantically go to the website to buy, trying to achieve the effect of using it with their favorite influencers.
Informational TikTok content also includes
-1 minute tip TikTok video
-Educational TikTok videos
5. TikTok Challenge
The recommended pages for you are almost always immersed in TikTok challenges such as the #Bestfriend challenge, the #SavageDance challenge, and the #LevelUp challenge.
In last year’s No Rush challenge, The SV Group put a skincare brand into the challenge. We asked influencers to create their own No Rush challenge using the brand’s skincare products. Those videos got a lot of views!
We strongly recommend joining TikTok to challenge trends and make the most of them. There are endless possibilities for promoting products with TikTok challenges. The point is that the content captures the attention of the audience. Below is an example of a No Rush challenge that a Singapore company did to promote their clothing.

We often see a lot of #Bestfriend challenges on TikTok. Despite the movement control order, people are contacting their friends more frequently than before. We encourage brands to take part in this challenge. An easy way to do this is to sponsor two or more influencers and ask them to complete a #Bestfriend challenge via video call. If you’re a clothing brand, you can send your clothing to influencers and ask to wear them on a video call.
Find a timeless TikTok challenge. It’s best to choose hashtags that are highly discussed.
