The TikTok app exploded during the pandemic and turned many ordinary people into popular influencers. The social media platform also attracted celebrities such as Will Smith and Jason Derulo, who were looking for new ways to interact with fans during the lockdown. Smith and Derulo became so popular in the app that they successfully combined and turned it into a lively beef. But the question remains-which one is really more popular on TikTok?
Top people on TikTok are not famous people
As the Evening News pointed out, both Smith and Drewlow were very successful on TikTok. Both are among the ten most watched stars on the platform. However, they are at the bottom of the list. The top eight are ordinary people. After introducing themselves as dancers, comedians and trendsetters, they became famous on TikTok.
The person who followed TikTok the most was the 16-year-old Charli D’Amelio, also known as the “Queen of TikTok.” Well-trained competitive dancers began to gain attention through their dance videos at the end of 2019 and gained popularity during the pandemic. She currently has 86.7 million followers and her net worth is believed to be approximately US$4 million.
In second place is another competitive dancer, 19-year-old Addison Rae. She joined TikTok in 2019 to upload dance videos and has since become a full-time content creator. It is believed that she is the highest paid star on TikTok. She has 60.3 million followers and works with Reebok, Hollister, American Eagle and L’Oréal. She also plays podcasts on Spotify with her mother. Her net worth is estimated to be about $5 million.
Will Smith has more followers on TikTok than Jason Derulo
As of October 16, Smith has more followers on TikTok than Derulo. However, their numbers are very close. Smith’s biography describes him as “the same child of West Philly” with 38.5 million followers. Meanwhile, Derulo has 37.7 million followers.
However, just because Smith has more followers than Derulo does not necessarily make him more popular. Since joining the platform in October 2019, Smith has published 48 videos and received 195.5 million likes in total.

Derulo’s numbers are bigger. He joined TikTok in March 2018 and has since released countless videos. He also received 824.6 million likes. According to how one person judges popularity, anyone can stand out.
Either way, they were very successful and noticed each other’s work on the platform. This led Smith and Derulo to team up to produce a video that showed them laughing at each other among their followers.
Videos of Jason Derulo and Will Smith make fans laugh together
In the summer, Derulo and Smith started posting videos to each other. Smith released the first collaboration video with Derulo on August 5. The feature of the video is that Fresh Prince of Bel-Air took a hoodie from the clothes rack and threw it on the table.
When the hoodie hit the table, Derulo appeared in the sweatshirt. The visual effect makes it look like the singer hits the head. Smith wrote in the title: “@jasonderulo said, he will follow me, follow me, so don’t let this fail.”
Derulo also shared the video, but the screen was split. On the other hand, Derulo reacted by freezing a piece of meatloaf on his head to reduce the swelling caused by the injury.
Since then, the two people have posted videos together, which feature two people in different situations. A clip shows them in the eyebrow battle between the two. The latest video on Smith’s website shows that he is playing beer ping pong and making incredible shots. It cuts into Derulo behind the camera that actually falsified the lens.
The two argued over who got the lens, and then Derulo used the camera to escape. Later, Derulo posted a split-screen video on Instagram. On the one hand, Smith’s beer ping pong video (TikTok), on the other hand, Derulo reacted when he was bandaged.
In the title, Derulo wrote: “If you don’t see your hero, they will try to kill you @willsmith.”
