Six trending Instagram reel tracks for every mood

Instagram has graduated from being a simple photo-sharing platform to so much more. The app is now more than just sun-kissed pictures and selfies. One of Instagram’s most popular features is reels! The reel has gone beyond TikTok-inspired trends to documenting everything from travels and cooking to a simple day in.

One of the ingredients to the magic formula of a trending Insta reel is the music. Your Instagram reel might be great, but lacking a trending tune, it is a prescription for low views!


Here’s a list of the top trending songs on Instagram reels right now that have had even celebrities grooving. Bookmark them for your next reel:

For the memories

The Nights by Avicii

For some fun moments with friends, family, your partner, or even yourself, this is the track for your vlog of precious memories to look back on when you want to remember the good times.

For the homebody stories

This one is for all the homebodies, who enjoy a cosy day at home with a soothing drink and a good book, or a simple meal with the closest buds, enjoying the rain. If you’re one who can celebrate a quiet moment, appreciating nature's beauty and the little things, this song, with all its #ChillVibes, is the one for you.

Celebrity reeled: Actor and artist Anindita Bose paired this tune perfectly with this video celebrating the magic moments in nature. Truly, what a wonderful world!

When you sweat it out

#Foodstagram stories

Yummy by Justin Beiber

Food reels are an Instagram staple, and always popular. From recipes and #WhatsOnYourPlate People to vlogs, restaurant recommendations and more, there’s a food-related reel for every mood. This Beiber number (with a name that fits) is an ideal condiment to zhuzh up your video.

#Travelgram tales

Disconnected by James Hype

Now that festive season is almost upon us, many of us have already booked tickets for that much-needed and long-due getaway. #Travel is one of Insta’s all time trending topics and this aptly-named track is ideal for all those vacation reels where you disconnect from the everyday routine, featuring everything from solo sojourns to adrenaline rush, vitamin sea to a yacht party.

The #OOTD reel

If you’re one of those who must have music playing when you get ready, or love shooting quick reels for your #OOTD and #OOTN, this one’s for you. While some of us may choose to have a Bollywood moment for our video, if you’re looking for an equally groovy alternative, this popular track, which has made an enormous comeback in the TikTok era, is one we recommend.
