Here’s how to do the "step 1" trend on TikTok.

The "step 1" trend on Tik Tok is actually a lot easier than most people might realize. All you have to do is add a photo or a video of yourself for one second at the start of your video using the correct trending sound in the background. The sound says the words “step one" in a deep, booming tone.

The actual sound is called “Step 1 remix by sleazy world go” and it was created by a user named @Arzinho10. Right after your one-second video or picture is added, you can edit in a video collage of whatever topic you want to cover.
