TikTok, the popular video-sharing app, has partnered with Billboard, the leading music publication, to launch a new weekly chart that will track the most popular songs on TikTok in the U.S.

The chart, called the TikTok Billboard Top 50, is the first of its kind to monitor the music trends on the platform. It will be based on a combination of creations, video views and user engagement by the U.S. TikTok community and will be released every Thursday, starting from Sept. 14.


The first TikTok Billboard Top 50 chart features a diverse mix of songs from different genres and eras, reflecting the eclectic tastes of TikTok users. The No. 1 spot goes to Sexyy Red (photo), a rookie rapper who has gone viral with her song “SkeeYee.” She also has three other songs on the chart, making her one of the most successful artists on TikTok.

Other notable entries include Doja Cat’s “Paint the Town Red,” which also tops the Billboard Hot 100 this week, Taylor Swift’s “august,” which is a fan-favorite from her album folklore, and Dazz Band’s “Let It Whip,” a classic funk hit from 1982.

The TikTok Billboard Top 50 chart aims to showcase the power of TikTok as a platform for music discovery and promotion, as well as to connect music fans with their favorite artists. Both TikTok and Billboard expressed their excitement about the partnership and the new chart, which they hope will reflect the way music discovery on TikTok is shaping popular culture.
