Here’s how TikTok came together to write a gorgeous song about a cat

TikTokers from all over the world came together to create the most pleasant song about a cat

Usually, when things snowball on social media it’s super negative. Luckily, things were different this time around. A group of talented musicians joined forces to write a song about one person’s neighborhood kitty. The result was surprisingly marvelous. 

“Here comes the boy” goes viral on TikTok


He lives down the road and we call him Mashed Potatoes #fyp #TakisTransformation #cat #catsoftiktok

The user @june_banoon shared a video on June 30 where they serenaded a cat from down the road who they named Mashed Potatoes. 

“Here comes the boy/Hello boy/Welcome/There he is/He is here,” Banoon sang

The video snagged 15.4 million views and sparked a chorus of duets. 

TikTokers create a symphony about a cat 

The user @alexfromsf added some piano to @june_banoon’s singing.

There was no shortage of creativity when it came to the collaborations. The user @tster_ overlayed his trumpet onto the version with two piano numbers.

Then one editing genius @baal_sword combined a ton of duets together to make an entire song with violin, saxophone, vocal harmonies, guitar, and piano music.
