TikTok has established itself as a perfect platform to allow videos to go viral, reaching millions of online users, but who should you be following on the app? Let’s take a look at the top 20 TikTok accounts. 

For those who don’t know a lot about the app itself, TikTok is a social media service that was launched back in 2017 for iOS and Android, owned by ByteDance.

It is now available in over 150 markets across the world in 75 different languages, with the past year looking like the most successful year yet for the application. With so many lip-sync videos, comedy sketches, and various other content, people are easily hooked — despite the app almost getting banned in the United States back in September 2020.


TikTok? We’ve rounded up the top 20 most followed to give you some ideas.

Now, as so many more people are making accounts for TikTok, we’re going to run through 20 of the most-followed users, using stats from Social Tracker.

There are some names you’ll instantly recognize on this list, but there are a few surprises too — and it’s crazy to see how many followers some people have managed to accrue.

Here’s the list of the most-followed top 20 TikTok accounts:

Top 20 TikTok accounts (June 2021)

1. Charli D’Amelio — 117.5 million TikTok followers

Charli is synonymous with TikTok.

The most followed individual on TikTok is Charli D’Amelio, overtaking Loren Gray on March 25, 2020, to become the largest account in the world.

At just 17 years old, her rise to the top has been nothing short of spectacular. Alongside her incredible success, she has already garnered over 9.0 million YouTube subscribers, collaborating with the likes of Noah Schnapp, and Marshmello.


D’Amelio exploded onto the scene with her videos of dance choreography. She even ended up being the first star on the app to appear in a Super Bowl commercial, an impressive accomplishment no matter which way you try to slice it. She has also starred in Chase Hudson’s music video for ‘America’s Sweetheart’.

2. Addison Rae — 81.0 million TikTok followers

Addison has made her mark on TikTok, holding the #2 spots for months without fail.

If there’s one name almost as synonymous with TikTok fame as Charli D’Amelio, it’s Addison Rae. She is best known for her dance choreography videos, and has built an immensely popular YouTube following off the back of her TikTok success.

It’s been reported that she makes $5m per year from TikTok — even more than D’Amelio — and it’s only looking up for the young star. The star has even appeared in a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.


3. Bella Poarch – 72.5 million TikTok followers

Prior to fame, the starlet served in the United States Navy. Now, she’s well known for her comedy TikToks that often center around gaming. Starring in her very own music video for ‘Build a Bitch’, she’s also featured in Sub Urban’s music video for ‘Cirque’

TikTok and YouTube star, Zach King, is popular all over social media.

King has been able to amass a following of above 60 million, despite posting far less than those above him in the list.

The star made a name for himself on the now-defunct app Vine, but he’s been able to transition his following over to a new platform quite nicely. Although he has a wife and two kids, he’s still able to produce consistent content, which is an impressive feat on its own.
