TikTok Trending on iHeartRadio is a brand-new digital radio station launched exclusively on New Zealand Media and Entertainment’s (NZME) iHeartRadio platform this month. TikTok Trending on iHeartRadio aims to be the go-to radio station for consumers, brands and industry players to get on top of the latest music tracks, artists and trends on TikTok right now – from new releases via international chart-toppers, through to revived classics from the likes of Fleetwood Mac and OMC.
