Celine Dion’s ‘It’s All Coming Back to Me Now’ Is Having a TikTok Renaissance

Celine Dion’s famous composition, 1996’s “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now”, has become the soundtrack for recent viral videos from several creators on TikTok.

A trend has surfaced on the app of people lip-syncing the song and pretending to be on stage during the emotional climax of the song. The video has garnered millions of views as people enjoy make-shift productions.

Jake Schuster (@Jakey_Breaky_Heart) was one of the early creators to embrace the trend, posting his rendition of Dion’s classic on December 15. The video posted by him has garnered over 10.7 million views. In this, he is seen wrapping a blanket around his head away from the camera. He is then seen taking off the blanket and wearing a halter dress wrapped around his body, which aligns perfectly with his caption “Can I have a little ruckus for the dress?” His microphone stand: A Swiffer.

“The video blowing up was nothing short of wild. I made it up as a joke, sent it to a few friends, and they were like ‘You better post that.'” Schuster told the Daily Dot. “I did and I got a million likes in a matter of hours. The likes are great, but the best part is the positive vibes and the simple joy it brought. It was a silly video that shows that part of us all Which we don’t always show, and that’s great. It’s relatable and goofy and that’s what I love about it.”

The comments section praised her performance with her styling choice, with one person saying that the outfit she “made” is “better than most dresses on the rack.” Another praised his “microphone”, writing in the comments: “I thought it was cool with the costume but then the mic came off the stand and I clapped!”

Two other creators increased the production value by performing in the garage and getting more help moving forward. Blair and Luke Frey, @ketchupwiththefreys, recorded Blair in a crimson red gown paired with a white fur coat paired with a bright pink slide as she lip-synced, “Baby, baby, Baby! When you touch me like this / And when you hold me like this / It was gone with the wind / But it’s all coming back to me.” Her mic stand has a mop but her husband Pull a leaf blower into the frame and add a fan effect to the display.

His video has garnered nearly 8 million views and over 975,000 likes.

Randi Bosin (@mrsbosin) posted a video of his performance on Thursday, with three extra hands. Similar to Frieze, a garage door opens to reveal Bossin with a purple blanket over her as she grabs a broom and a serving spoon. Dion’s song crescendo and blanket are pulled to reveal a white velvet mini dress, the other hand removes the “mic stand” (broom), and the “fan” is turned on.

Dion herself has yet to accept the ongoing trend. The Daily Dot has contacted Frey and Bossin for comment.
