One of the most important things, when you search audio for your content, is to find some trendy pieces, that's why we created this article with our top tips for creative professionals to find music on trend based on our research and experiences in the industry! So let's hop in 🙂
1. Follow the Trendsetters Globally.
This is easy to do and you can browse lots of lists of all the latest trending songs and annual music reports. Various companies publish statistics about the latest most streamed, listened, viewed music – including Shazam, YouTube, and Spotify. Explore their music by taking a pencil and summarizing the common pieces of each list. In the end, you will get your own list of global trendsetters!
Make sure to also keep up with Industry reports and trends published by various organizations. You can check out the Global Music Report from 2019 here.
2. Follow Musical Genre Consumption!
It’s a good idea to follow top authors in AudioJungle while you are searching, but you must take into consideration, that they had their own way to success, and the market shows that the key of the success is not always to create your content with the same popular tracks as the majority of creative professionals do.
For example, there are many corporate songs in the popular files, but it is very difficult to get trending content in this genre because authors upload many corporate songs daily. You can always find data which is useful when you decide the genre before searching. Use the Jungle!
3. Be Up to Date With Commercials.
Don’t turn off the TV when you watch your favorite movie or show and the commercial break comes on – this also applies with YouTube ads! For you, these ads can be one of the main manuals to guide you to search music that is on trend. Pay attention to their length, style and try to find something similar with characteristics based on your observations.
4. Indie Is the Magic Powder!
Sometimes it’s nice to add some indie sound to your content. Indie is the magic powder you can draw from when you are out of ideas. Indie is one of the coolest music styles right now – the best example is Imagine Dragons, which are leading many top lists worldwide.
Another musician is James Bay! He released his first single in 2014 and now he has 1.2 million subscribers on YouTube.
Here is a good example by Coca Cola with Indie Folk Track in their commercial:

5. Add Your Personality – always.
Your personality is the most important ingredient of all! This is what makes your content – your own, unique creation. Without this secret ingredient, the sound of your content is only a clone of someone else’s creativity. So, make sure not to be afraid to be yourself when searching.
