TikTok superstar Bella Poarch has officially earned the most likes on a TikTok video. If you’ve been on Tik Tok lately, then you’ve probably come across the irritatingly lip-sync ‘M to the B’ by MIllie B song. At the time of writing, the post has 468 million views and more than 37 million likes.
After her massive video went viral, she shifted her content strategy to focus almost entirely on lip-syncing videos filmed with a face-tracking filter ( Face Zoom ).
People are shocked that such a simple video has so many views and likes, but that’s what the internet is. She is a big fan of Japanese culture so she makes a lot of anime references, mostly shown in her cosplays, tattoos, makeup looks, and facial expressions. She also claimed to have served in the U.S. Navy.
Rumors say Poarch was born in the Philippines on February 8, 1997, which would make her 23. Though she only joined the app in April 2020, she has more than 30 million followers and people immediately questioned "why does her video have so many likes?". Now, the sound boasts over 5 million videos across TikTok, the lyrics are from a 2016 diss track by young British rapper Millie B, and some people believe the reason for her success is due to the viral sound.
But there are plenty of reasons to believe it's not only because of the great song that the video has blown up. What is consistent across all the videos is a flood of comments saying they find the video style oddly satisfying and addicting to watch over and over.
This finds explanation as this sort of face-dancing thing creates more of a joyful sensation and is humans like looking at happy faces, get positive vibes from music with fast BPMs, and enjoy seeing something new.
Also, there is another important reason, she is beautiful and she doesn't show her body as the other girls do on Tik Tok and Instagram to get famous, but she does something cute. Her comedy lip-syncs videos capture everyone because of her cute silly faces.
Day after day, she kept uploading the same kind of videos, not before long, the comment section on her videos began to fill up with TikTok users who were lashing out at her and her new-found fame. But she ignored them, she didn’t even seem to acknowledge their existence.
What many of these people didn’t realize is that they were actually helping Bella to grow her TikTok account.
The mix by the great song, her hidden beauty, the cute facial expressions, and the haters made her the most famous Tik Tokers.
She was born in the United States. She is a Filipina.
The video blew up on TikTok in August after famous e-girl Bella Poarch posted a video of herself head-bopping to it.
