TikTok is a leading social media app that emphasizes a great deal on music, so much that many songs became known and popular thanks to the app. Several recording artists have even begun creating their music in alignment with how people use TikTok.
And so, TikTok’s growing influence in the music industry has led the company to partner with the American music company Billboard, to add a new integration on its platform in the US called ‘TikTok Billboard Top 50 Chart.’
The chart highlights current music trends by accurately displaying titles of the top trending music tracks on a weekly basis, every Thursday. According to TikTok, it is “the first official chart in the US to monitor music discovery and engagement on the platform.”
The songs that make it to the TikTok Billboard Top 50 Chart are rated based on “a combination of creations, video views, and user engagement by the US TikTok community,” as confirmed by TikTok itself.
It will, therefore, be interesting to see how the differences in rankings show up between the TikTok Billboard chart and Billboard’s regular top track charts.
