On Thursday, September 14, TikTok and Billboard launched the TikTok Billboard Top 50.. A new weekly chart that will take into account the most popular songs on the platform in the United States. The chart is available to all TikTok users in the US and on the Billboard website.
TikTok Billboard Top 50 is the first chart to track music popularity on the video-sharing platform.. The chart is based on a combination of creations, video views and user activity from the US TikTok community and will be published every Thursday.
Sexyy Red is the first artist to reach the top of the charts. SkiYi took first place on the TikTok Billboard Top 50, which opened last week. (Paint the town red by Doja Cat – which goes all the way up. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week is the #1 song. 2 of TikTok Billboard’s top 50, as well August Taylor Swift comes in second. 3).
“TikTok is already the world’s most powerful platform for music discovery and promotion. And every week, our passionate community of music fans puts songs on the Billboard charts,” said Ole Obermann, Global Head of Music Business Development at TikTok.. So it made sense to partner with Billboard to create the TikTok Billboard Top 50. The ranking provides a clear picture of the music being listened to on TikTok. And this is therefore starting to show up in DSPs and other services.”
“We’re thrilled to collaborate on Billboard’s first chart on TikTok,” said Mike Wang, president of Billboard.. “At Billboard, we’re constantly evolving our charts to reflect how fans interact with music. And to connect them more deeply with the artists they love. We see a clear opportunity to recognize how music discovery on TikTok shapes popular culture. We are proud to offer this tool to the industry. You’re not going to be No. 1 until you’re No. 1 on Billboard.”. For her part, Sexyy Red thanked her fans on TikTok for “boosting my music!”
Sexyy Red is the #1 artist on Billboard’s TikTok Top 50.
“I’m so happy to have so many of my songs in the TikTok Billboard Top 50,” Sexy Red said. “I always knew I would be a #1 artist, so I want to thank all my fans on TikTok for helping my music take off! On TikTok I’m just being myself and people love it.”
Also celebrating new hit Sexyy Red is Larry Jackson’s Gamma Entertainment, which counts the rapper’s debut as one of its first successes since launching in March. Jackson told Billboard that he was “incredibly proud that a song from one of our artists, Sexyy Red, debuted at number 100. Number one on TikTok’s inaugural Billboard Top 50 chart. This chart, I believe, will have industry-wide significance alongside the Hot 100 and the Billboard 200. And to have four songs in the top 50 of this new chart is something to be amazed at.” he continued.
