We honestly would have never guessed that colors would play such a big role on TikTok. From checking the whiteness of your teeth to changing up your hair color just for fun, there are plenty of TikTok trends that all seem to be centered around color.

And so, when we saw people were posting videos saying “this is my yellow,” we assumed at first that it was a reference to another color filter or something like that. But it isn’t! Here’s what “my yellow” actually means on TikTok — it’s pretty sweet!

If you scroll through the #myyellow tag on TikTok, it won’t take long to realize what the trend refers to. Basically, people are referring to the love of their life as their “yellow.” A lot of the videos use a remixed version of Coldplay’s song “Yellow,” specifically these lyrics:

Your skinOh yeah, your skin and bonesTurn into something beautifulYou knowYou know I love you soYou know I love you so

Some people are taking the prompt quite literally and showing photos and video clips of their significant others. The videos typically start with a picture or clip of the creator with text that says “This my yellow,” then transition to a sweet slideshow of their significant other. The photos might show the two of them together, screenshots of text conversations, or just straight-up photos of their boo looking cute.

It doesn’t matter how single and/or cold-hearted you are — you have to admit that seeing people share their love for the people in their lives is pretty darn touching. That being said, if you find yourself just rolling your eyes at all of the adorableness, don’t give up on the “my yellow” trend completely!


I wouldn’t trade him for the world :)
