Musical.ly, The Most Popular App You'Ve Probably Never Heard Of



Musical.ly, The Most Popular App You'Ve Probably Never Heard Of

Its claim to fame? It's a musical social networking phenomena that attracts teenagers.

For those of you who are new to Musical.ly (Yes, that's the domain name), I call your attn to the line that reads, "10 million people use the app daily and produce around the same number of videos every single day"; YouTube move over!!!!

Business Insider Website, Tech Section, May, 2016; Musical.ly has its own website, and a Wiki

Unless you live with a teenager, you've probably never heard of Musical.ly [Me here: No, I hadn't heard of it until today].

If you do, then you've probably already appeared in one of your kid's music videos.

The DIY music-video app first came on the scene in 2014, but exploded to the top of the App Store charts last summer. It hasn't fallen below the top 40 since. Often, it's swapping top places in the app store with Snapchat and Instagram.

The 15-second videos are typically people lip-syncing or dancing to some of the top hits. More recently, Musical.ly stars have started launching their own careers, and traditional music stars, like Jason DeRulo, are now pledging to debut their videos on the platform first, a coup over YouTube.

Today, more than 10 million people use the app daily and produce around the same number of videos every single day. All in, 70 million people have registered as Musical.ly users, says its cofounder and co-CEO Alex Zhu.

While the music videos have drawn people to the app, Zhu knows that's not why they stay. He's building Musical.ly to be the next social network — one based on videos that only entertain people and keep them coming back.

"Today the very proposition of the app is not about creating music videos. It’s not about lip-syncing. It’s about a social network," Zhu said. "It’s a community. People want to stay because there are other people. "

Now people older than teens have heard of it, it will die a death in the original demographic. Generation Z leave as soon as their parents/grandparents join anything.
