Do you love music but you’re tired of just watching their music videos? Musical.ly is the perfect app for you. Available in both iOS and Android platforms, Musical.ly lets you unleash your creativity as it is a platform for creating your own music videos. You can use songs by your favorite artists… for free!
You can lip sync or sing along to the music while filming yourself wherever you are. You can even film at home! Of course, not only can you create and post your own videos, but you can also view videos of other interesting users that you follow.
The most important part of a music video is the music itself. Without it, the video would be… boring. Fortunately, Musical.ly provides a wide range of music. Pop, rock, R&B, ballads, and more!
However, unlike normal music videos, you can only make a 15-second video with the app. So make sure you post something that’s super fun and worthy!
