About this challenge

TikTok and Billie Eilish present the first-ever TikTok music effect challenge—HIT ME HARD AND SOFT Effect Challenge!

Effect House is TikTok’s free effect-creation tool for Mac and PC. When you create and publish TikTok effects in Effect House, creators around the world can use them in their videos. Your effect could be the next big TikTok trend!

Now, with the integration of the TikTok Sounds Library in Effect House, you can add popular music and TikTok sounds to your effects — like the songs from Billie Eilish’s latest album.

Create effects inspired by Billie Eilish’s new album for a chance to win cash prizes, signed merch, and tickets to see her live.

What we’re looking for

Create effects that feature songs from Billie Eilish’s new album, HIT ME HARD AND SOFT, using TikTok Sounds Library in Effect House.

Tip: Favorite a sound from the Sounds tab on @billieeilish‘s TikTok profile, and it will appear in your Favorites of the TikTok Sounds Library in Effect House!


Support for the “default sound” functionality will be gradually rolled out to all TikTok users via an upcoming app update and may not be available for all users during the challenge period.
