JID’s ‘Surround Sound’ Crowns TikTok Billboard Top 50

There’s a new No. 1 on the TikTok Billboard Top 50 in JID’s “Surround Sound,” featuring 21 Savage and Baby Tate, which vaults from No. 5 to the top of the Dec. 16-dated tally.

The TikTok Billboard Top 50 is a weekly ranking of the most popular songs on TikTok in the United States based on creations, video views and user engagement. The latest chart reflects activity Dec. 4-10. Activity on TikTok is not included in Billboard charts except for the TikTok Billboard Top 50.

“Surround Sound” reigns in its fourth week on the chart, completing a climb that began with its No. 13 debut on the Nov. 25 survey, followed by a pair of weeks at No. 5.

The song, first released in 2022, has largely been carried by a dance trend in which users mount or tape a phone to the ceiling and record a choreographed dance or other scene below, as previously reported.

Concurrently, “Surround Sound” continues its march up the Billboard Hot 100, reaching a new peak of No. 64. It earned 8.8 million official U.S. streams on services that report to the Hot 100 Dec. 1-7, up 31%, according to Luminate.

“Surround Sound” reigns over Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” which spends a second week at No. 2 on the TikTok Billboard Top 50. It remains the leader of the pack when it comes to holiday tunes, with The Ronettes’ “Sleigh Ride” (specifically the PhatCap! trap remix) following at No. 6, its first time in the top 10, and Wham!’s “Last Christmas” and Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” rounding out the group top 10-wise at Nos. 7 and 9, respectively.

In all, seven holiday-themed songs reach the Dec. 16 ranking. Michael Buble’s “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” rises to No. 22, while Andy Williams’ “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” (No. 27) and Bobby Helms’ “Jingle Bell Rock” (No. 40) debut.

The week’s top debut is courtesy of Flo Milli, whose “Never Lose Me” bows at No. 12. That’s after its Nov. 30 premiere and occurs concurrent with the track’s No. 22 debut on Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs chart.

“Never Lose Me” marks the rapper’s first TikTok Billboard Top 50 appearance. Some of its top uploads so far follow trends captioned “we’ve made it to the too comfortable stage,” showing couples hanging out in their downtime, or people pretending to tell their grandkids a bedtime story using the song’s lyrics, while others simply celebrate the song being out at all after it was teased earlier in the fall.

It’s followed by a currently unreleased song in Alex G’s “I Wait for You,” which begins at No. 15. Though never officially released, the track has nonetheless become popular in the singer-songwriter’s canon, slowly rising over the past few months on TikTok both via its original version and a sped-up edition.

One spot above “I Wait for You,” mikeeysmind and Sanikwave’s “VVV (HE’S BACK)” vaults from its No. 48 debut Dec. 9 to No. 14, the sound again used in a variety of ways rather than one overarching trend – though many include footage of gameplay from a variety of video games, chiefly Fortnite. “VVV” incorporates vocals from Playboi Carti, though uncredited; it racked up 1.2 million streams in the latest Billboard tracking week, up 28%.
