It seems like it is an Instagram bug. Instagram usually fixes these issues within a couple of days.

So you could wait.

Some people managed to get their normal music back!

So if you don’t want to wait, I’m going to share the 6 main tricks that worked for them.

Solution #1. Change your page category

Let’s start with the easiest solution first.

This seems to work for some people.

Change your page category to something that doesn’t sound like a business .

Examples of page categories that work:

  • Community
  • Just for Fun
  • Entrepreneur
  • Blogger

How to change your page category:

  1. Under your Instagram bio, press on Edit Profile
  2. Under Profile information > Category
  3. Change the category to one of the above
  4. Check if you have the Music

Note: It might take a few hours to show the normal music again.

What if the weird music is still here?

Try the next solution.

Solution #2. Switch from Business to Creator Instagram account

Warning: if you have a Business profile right now. Do not switch back to a Personal account.

Try this first:

  1. Switch to a Creator Instagram account.
  2. Then switch back to a Business account.
  3. Wait for 5 minutes.
  4. Check if the Music is back.
  5. Switch to a Business account again.


For some people, it takes about 2 days for normal music to come back. After that, you can switch back to a Business account.

If you don’t want to wait, go to Solution #3.

Solution #3. Switch to a Personal Account and reinstall the Instagram app

For some people, switching to a Personal Instagram account worked instantly.

So if the previous solutions didn’t work, try this:

  1. Switch your account to Personal
  2. Delete the Instagram app
  3. Re-download it
  4. Check if the Music is back to normal
  5. If it is, you can switch back to a Business Profile

Solution #4. Repost a Story that has music

Some people found a weird loophole to get normal music back.

You need to have a second account that has Music.

Then do this:

  1. Go on your second account
  2. Create a Story with Music from your second account
  3. Tag your main account that doesn’t have Music
  4. Post the Story
  5. Go on your main account
  6. Go to your messages and repost the Story you’re tagged in
  7. Unmute your phone / increase the volume to activate the Music
  8. Check if your normal Music is back

If it doesn’t work, then try the next trick.

Solution #5. Save your own music

If none of the tricks above helped, then you can use this trick as a temporary solution.

At least, you will have some sort of music.

Try this:

  1. Open one of your Reels video that has an audio / song you want to use
  2. Press on the song title at the bottom of the Reels video
  3. Press on Save Audio
  4. Go in your Instagram Stories
  5. Check if you can use this song

And if you want more music to add to your own library, use the last solution.

Solution #6. Save other people’s good music

Save the music from other people’s Reels.

  1. Find someone else’s Reels video that has an audio / song you like
  2. Press on the song title at the bottom of their Reels video
  3. Press on Save Audio
  4. Go in your Instagram Stories
  5. Check if you can use this music

That’s it!
