Flo Milli Crowns TikTok Billboard Top 50 With ‘Never Lose Me’

Flo Milli’s “Never Lose Me” snags the No. 1 spot on the Jan. 20-dated TikTok Billboard Top 50 chart in its seventh week on the survey, vaulting 7-1.

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 Jan. 8-14. Activity on TikTok is not included in Billboard charts except for the TikTok Billboard Top 50.

“Never Lose Me” reigns a month-and-a-half after its Nov. 30, 2023, premiere. Its rise is concurrent with continued gains on the multimetric Billboard Hot 100; it reaches a new peak of No. 42 on the Jan. 20-dated tally on the strength of 9.8 million official chart-eligible U.S. streams (up 11%) and 430,000 radio audience impressions (up 113%), according to Luminate.

As previously covered in articles about the TikTok Billboard Top 50, “Never Lose Me” has sported a variety of trends on TikTok since its release, including one involving creators displaying medals and trophies with captions describing what they got those accolades for, generally tongue-in-cheek (example: having the worst ex). Recently, the sound has also included a bevy of uploads highlighting the song’s “never had a b—h like me” lyric.

“Never Lose Me” takes over from Lesley Gore’s “Misty,” which falls to No. 2 after a weeklong reign. Then comes Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s “Murder on the Dancefloor,” which continues its bound toward the top of the chart, leaping 10-3. Its virality continues to stem from the film in which it’s featured, Saltburn, though usages of the track on TikTok continue to expand past Salburn-specific content.

Like “Never Lose Me,” “Murder on the Dancefloor” is blasting up the Hot 100, zooming 98-58 on the latest survey via 6.3 million streams, 295,000 radio impressions and 4,000 downloads.

Nicki Minaj’s “Everybody” (featuring Lil Uzi Vert) and Mitski’s “My Love Mine All Mine,” both recent stalwarts near the top of the TikTok Billboard Top 50, round out the top five.

One doesn’t need to travel outside the top 10 to find the week’s top debut. That distinction belongs to He Is We’s “I Wouldn’t Mind,” which bows at No. 8. It’s one of TikTok’s latest examples of revitalizing a long-since-released song; “I Wouldn’t Mind” originally premiered in 2010.

A sped-up version of the track, which was officially released on streaming services Jan. 11, has aided the song’s renaissance, with nearly all uploads centering on its “merrily we fall out of line” opening refrain and many following a specific dance trend.

The latest Billboard chart tracking week finds “I Wouldn’t Mind” up 98% to 2.2 million streams total.

A pair of songs that are new in the top 10 – but not chart debuts – follow “I Wouldn’t Mind,” as Cordelia’s “Little Life” and Xavi’s “La Diabla” complete the top 10. “Little Life” has sported a recent trend where creators do impressions of the song’s “I think I like this little life” vocal delivery, while “La Diabla” is the latest regional Mexican tune to find success on TikTok, with the viral sound occurring as the song leaps up the Hot 100, hitting a new peak of No. 22 on the Jan. 20 ranking.
