Billboard has launched a chart for music on TikTok.
The long-running American publication introduced the chart earlier this week, which is assembled “based mostly on creations, video views and consumer engagement”.
The chart’s inaugural Quantity One was revealed to be ‘SkeeYee’ by Sexyy Purple, which is at present sitting at No. 67 on the principle chart, the Billboard Scorching 100. Launched again in June, the music skyrocketed to recognition due to a pattern the place customers whipped their head in the course of the rapper’s “skeeyee” advert lib.
The rapper has three different songs on the TikTok charts – ‘Wanting For The Hoes (Ain’t My Fault)’, MCVERT’s ‘Face Down’ and ‘Mad At Me’, which place at 19, 27 and 50 respectively.
“I’m so excited that so lots of my songs are charting on the TikTok Billboard Prime 50 chart,” Sexyy Purple advised Billboard. “I at all times knew I’d be a No. 1 sort of artist, so I need to thank all my followers on TikTok for operating my music up! I’m simply being me on TikTok and other people like it.”

In the meantime, Doja Cat’s ‘Paint The City Purple’ got here in at Quantity Two, having simply turned the primary rap No. 1 on the Scorching 100 in over a 12 months this week.
Taylor Swift logged six songs on the chart, together with ‘Anti-Hero’, which got here in at Quantity Six.
Elsewhere, the platform lately revealed their songs of the summer season for 2023, together with tracks from Central Cee and Dave, Mae Stephens and FIFTY FIFTY.
Mae Stephens topped the worldwide Songs of the Summer time playlist along with her woozy revenge monitor ‘If We Ever Broke Up’. Talking on this feat, the Kettering singer stated, “I’m actually honoured to have the worldwide primary spot for TikTok’s Tune of the Summer time!”
“I’m speechless, I by no means imagined it to climb that far. I can’t thank everybody sufficient who has supported the music, streamed, shared and given it a little bit increase. You might be unimaginable and I’m so grateful. It proves that TikTok can actually take somebody and increase them up to now!”
Different artists featured on the worldwide playlist embrace Doechii, Ariana Grande and Aqua.
