AI-generated songs are exploding on TikTok, and while no one is sure of the legitimacy of the trend, the ability to blend two opposing elements has, once again, proven to be a popular use of the technology.
Generative AI tools trained to mimic the voices of famous artists fail to replicate the nuances of a real singer. At best, they replicate some form of lethargic performance from a weary star, relying heavily on auto-tune. However, it is enough to create a novelty, and for the time being, Ye, formerly known as Kanye Westhas proven to be a popular voice for AI enthusiasts.

TikTok users have inserted the AI-generated Ye into pop songs, British ballads from foul play And Adelevia “Summer Sadness” By Lana Del Ray“Hey there Delilah” plain white ta wide selection of country music, and even songs he wrote Taylor SwiftYou are the “enemy”.
Right now, Ye seems to be the most used meme form for AI-generated songs, but other popular sounds are also popular like Ariana GrandeAnd Harry StilesAnd RihannaAnd DrakeAnd weekend And Britney Spears. Many of these AI-generated songs aren’t memes at all: they’re experiments, pair artists in non-existent duets, or have them sing KPop.
Drake spoke out against the trend on a since-deleted Instagram Story, where he shared an AI version of himself covering the song “Munch” byIce SpiceWith the caption: “This is the straw that broke the camel’s back for AI.”
“Heart on My Sleeve,” a song created by TikTok co-creator ghostwriter that combines AI-generated vocals by Drake and The Weeknd, quickly went viral, racking up millions of plays on Spotify, TikTok, and YouTube before it was removed. . The song was no joke, and its success highlighted the trend’s murky legality, as well as ethical concerns with AI-generated vocals.
Since then, the Universal Music Group (UMG) has asked streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music to prevent AI developers from using UMG artists to train the software.
said a UMG spokesperson financial times. “We expect our partner platforms to prevent their services from being used in a way that is harmful to artists.”
From an ethical standpoint, the trend is already problematic, since deceased artists who cannot give their consent are “resurrected” by AI, and living artists now have to deal with an AI-generated version of their voice, used as an instrument, that can be used To express offensive language.
Concerns about the training data used to train generative AI models have been present since the technology’s inception, with many working artists vehemently opposed to assimilating their work into a machine, which could lead to them losing their style and devaluing their work, while image-making tools like Midjourney threaten to distort our sense of The subscriber to reality by flooding the Internet with fake pictures that appear at first glance to be real pictures.
All of these concerns materialize with the rise of AI-generated vocals and songs, and the floodgates are already open. As the success of “Heart on My Sleeve” proves, the potential of this technology is not limited to mere memes.
Commenting on “Heart on My Sleeve” on YouTube, the ghostwriter wrote ominously: “This is just the beginning.”
