Alek Olsen’s ‘Someday I’ll Get It’ Rules TikTok Billboard Top 50

Alek Olsen’s “Someday I’ll Get It” becomes the latest song to top the TikTok Billboard Top 50, vaulting 19-1 on the March 30-dated survey.

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 March 18-24. Activity on TikTok is not included in Billboard charts except for the TikTok Billboard Top 50. As previously noted, titles that are part of Universal Music Group’s catalog are currently unavailable on TikTok.

The ascent of “Someday I’ll Get It” comes in just its second week on the TikTok Billboard Top 50, as it debuted at No. 19 on the March 23 list. The lo-fi acoustic track has exploded on TikTok due to a trend using the song with creators either reminiscing about deceased pets or showing some of said pets’ final days.

As a result, much of the sound’s usage also shows people reacting to having seen the pet trend all over their For You Page, often taking photos or videos of themselves in tears.

Concurrently, “Someday I’ll Get It” bows at No. 24 on Billboard’s multimetric Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart, Olsen’s first appearance on a tally that isn’t populated by TikTok data. It starts via 2.6 million official U.S. streams March 15-21, up 126% from 1.2 million the previous frame, according to Luminate.

“Someday I’ll Get It” takes No. 1 on the TikTok Billboard Top 50 from Djo’s “End of Beginning,” which falls to No. 2 – though it continues to rise on other Billboard charts, nearing the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 by jumping 21-11. Beyonce’s “Texas Hold ‘Em” and Dasha’s “Austin,” a pair of country songs previously discussed due to their trends featuring line dances as the main driver for their activity, follow at Nos. 3 and 4, respectively, and Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” rounds out the top five.

The week’s top debut is G-Eazy’s “Lady Killers II (Christoph Andersson Remix),” which bows at No. 7.
“Lady Killers” was initially released in 2012 as part of G-Eazy’s album Must Be Nice, while the new version premiered March 17.

The remix’s move onto streaming services was no coincidence; it was released after the Andersson remix went viral on TikTok in the past month. G-Eazy himself got in on the fun with a lip-synching clip announcing the song’s wide release while also adhering to the “Lady Killers II” general trend, which aligns with the “Make her disappear just like poof/ Then she’s gone” line, with the creator turning off the light illuminating them previously after the verse is said.

“Lady Killers II” snagged 758,000 official U.S. streams in its first week of release and will continue to rise during the April 6-dated Billboard tracking week (March 22-28). The original “Lady Killers” also sported a sizable bump: 1.5 million streams March 15-21, up 125%.

Madison Beer’s “Make You Mine” also reaches the TikTok Billboard Top 50 for the first time, launching 18-10 in its second week on the survey. The sound, which largely highlights the song’s opening “I wanna feel, feel, feel/ Wanna taste, taste, taste/ Wanna get you goin’” refrain, has been used a variety of ways, from lip synchs to hair tutorials to fancam edits.

“Make You Mine” is currently bubbling under the Hot 100. It earned 3.4 million official U.S. streams March 15-21, up 1%. It’s also Beer’s first Pop Airplay appearance since 2021 (“Reckless”), having reached No. 34 so far.
