The TikTok app exploded during a pandemic and turned many ordinary people into popular authorities. The social media platform also attracted celebrities such as Will Smith and Jason Derulo, who were looking for new ways to interact with their fans during the blockade. Smith and Derulo became so popular in the app that they linked their success and turned it into a fun beef. But the question remains – which one is really more popular on TikTok?
The best personalities on TikTok are not famous celebrities
According to The Evening Standard, both Smith and Derulo are extremely successful on TikTok. Both were included in the list of the 10 best stars on the platform. However, they were at the very end of the list. The top eight are ordinary people who became famous on TikTok after introducing themselves as dancers, comedians and fashionistas.
16-year-old Charlie D’Amelio, also known as the “Queen of TikTok”, is the most watched on TikTok. The trained competitive dancer began to gain popularity thanks to her dance videos at the end of 2019, and her popularity grew during the pandemic. It currently has 86.7 million subscribers and an estimated net worth of about $ 4 million.
In second place – another competitive dancer, 19-year-old Addison Ray. In 2019, she joined TikTok to download dance videos, and has since become a regular content creator. She is considered to be the highest earning star on TikTok. With 60.3 million subscribers, she works with Reebok, Hollister, American Eagle and L’Oréal. She also has a podcast on Spotify with her mother. Its equity is estimated at about $ 5 million.
Will Smith has more fans on TikTok than Jason Derulo
As of October 16, Smith has more followers on TikTok than Derulo. But their number is extremely close. Smith, whose biography describes him as “the same child from West Philly,” has 38.5 million followers. At the same time, Derulo has 37.7 million followers.
But just because Smith has more followers than Derulo doesn’t make him more popular. Smith posted 48 videos and received a total of 195.5 million likes since he joined the platform in October 2019.

Derulo’s numbers are even higher. He joined TikTok in March 2018 and has since released countless videos. He also received 824.6 million likes. Depending on how someone judges the popularity, one or the other may come out on top.
In any case, they are both extremely successful and have noticed each other’s work on the platform. This led to Smith and Derulo teaming up to create videos that show how they happily fight each other for their followers.
The video of Jason Derulo and Will Smith leaves fans laughing out loud
Derulo and Smith began posting videos to each other over the summer. Smith released the first video of the Derulo collaboration on August 5. On it, the Fresh Prince Bel-Air removed the hoodie from the clothes hanger and threw it on the table.
When the hoodie hits the table, Derulo appears in the sweatshirt. The visual effect makes the singer hit his head. In the caption, Smith wrote, “@jasonderulo said he was going to catch up with me on the followers, so don’t let that flop.”
Derulo also shared the video, but with a split screen. On the other hand, Derulo responded with a frozen cake on his head to reduce the expected swelling from the injury.
Since then, they have posted videos together where they are presented in different situations. One clip showed a couple dancing eyebrow battles. The latest video on Smith’s page shows him playing beer pong and making incredible shots. This cuts Derulo behind the camera, who is actually forging shots.
The two argue over who gets the footage, and Derulo runs away with the camera. Derulo later posted a split-screen video on Instagram. On the one hand there was a video of Smith about beer pong TikTok, on the other hand Derulo reacted, covered with bandages.
In the caption Derulo wrote: “Do not meet your heroes, they will try and kill you @willsmith.”
