If you haven’t heard of the heartbreak song Arcade by Duncan Laurence, you will by the time you read this. In fact, you most likely heard, you just aren’t aware of the name of the track or the artist.

The Eurovision winning song has amassed over 300 million Spotify streams. The song landed on the US Billboard Hot 100, the first time a Eurovision song hit in the chart in 45 year.

Duncan Laurence won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel. His win gave the Netherlands their fifth Eurovision win. Now, the song is charting in United States, South America, Asia and Australia.

TikTok gave the song momentum when Harry Potter fans were making videos using cut scenes from the Harry Potter films.

The message of “Arcade” took off with TikTok users, particularly the lyric “All I know, all I know, Loving you is a losing game”. But for Duncan, it’s a winning game.

Why Did TikTok Become The Destination For a Shot Of Internet Fame? Because of the algorithm.

TikTok is the go-to platform for a shot of internet fame. Why? Because most users gave up on Instagram and FB. Those platforms only cater to the celebrity, not the new users looking to be discovered. No matter how much you post, you aren’t going to get ahead. You can’t fight the algorithm. You know the saying “I fought the algorithm and the algorithm won”.

TikTok is different. It doesn’t matter if you’re a celeb or joe sixpack. TikTok shares videos that the user is likely to watch disregarding the creator and follower count. Since TikTok moved away from the YouTube / Instagram algorithm (follower count), it’s easier to breakout. TikTok rewards content, not the creator.

It returned the internet to its original intent, when everybody could go viral before the corporations took over.
