Alek Olsen Remains Atop TikTok Billboard Top 50, Hozier Jumps Into Top 3

Alek Olsen’s “Someday I’ll Get It” is No. 1 on the TikTok Billboard Top 50 chart for a third straight week, followed by G-Eazy’s “Lady Killers II” and Hozier’s “Too Sweet” on the ranking dated April 13.

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 April 1-7. 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.

Olsen’s “Someday I’ll Get It” enjoys its third week at No. 1 on the chart in as many weeks. It’s the third song to lead the TikTok Billboard Top 50 for at least three weeks since the list’s September 2023 inception, following Mitski’s “My Love Mine All Mine” (six weeks, October-December 2023) and Flo Milli’s “Never Lose Me” (four weeks, January-February).

The track’s prime usage on TikTok was initially a trend remembering deceased pets – one that continues to this day, though other recent clips find creators reminiscing about other losses they’ve experienced.

The March 29-April 4 Billboard multimetric chart tracking week sees “Someday I’ll Get It” lift 20-18 on the Hot Rock & Alternative Songs list via 3.3 million official U.S. streams, according to Luminate.

G-Eazy’s “Lady Killers II,” billed as the Christoph Andersson remix, lifts to No. 2 on the TikTok Billboard Top 50, a new peak. Released as a follow-up to G-Eazy’s original from the 2012 album Must Be Nice, the tune premiered March 17 after the then-unreleased remix took off on TikTok via a trend in which users turn off a light illuminating them in sync with the “Make her disappear just like poof/ Then she’s gone” lyric, usually on a beach.

“Lady Killers II” concurrently enjoys a 12% boost in official U.S. streams to 4.8 million March 29-April 4. It appears at No. 49 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (after debuting at No. 47 the previous week) and also bows on the Billboard Global 200 at No. 147.


the crazy thing is just how nice every single one was

♬ Too Sweet – Hozier

Hozier’s “Too Sweet” leaps to No. 3 on the TikTok Billboard Top 50 from No. 31, also a new peak. After being teased on TikTok prior to its March 22 wide release, the song has vaulted up the chart via multiple viral usages on the platform, mostly lip-synching, covers and being attached to unrelated popular videos.

The song rises 10% in official U.S. streams toward the latest Billboard charts to a new high of 31.8 million, good enough for No. 2 on the all-format Streaming Songs list. It also ascends 5-4 on the multimetric Billboard Hot 100.

Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) and Ty Dolla $ign’s “Carnival,” a previous two-week No. 1 on the TikTok Billboard Top 50, dips 2-4, and Sexyy Red’s “Get It Sexyy” rounds out the top five.

Bakar’s “Hell N Back” returns to the chart at No. 6, its first time among the ranking since January. Originally released in 2019, the song has enjoyed multiple viral moments throughout its lifetime, both on TikTok and via its placement in the trailer for the 2023 Disney/Pixar film Elemental. This time, the track’s Summer Walker remix is driving the attention, with Walker’s vocals soundtracking a trend in which users talk about their significant others to the verse “I was over love, I had enough, then I found you.”

“Hell N Back” returns to the Alternative Streaming Songs chart at No. 15 with 4.6 million official U.S. streams, a boost of 69%.

Artemas’ “I Like the Way You Kiss Me” is one of three songs, like Hozier’s “Too Sweet,” to reach the TikTok Billboard Top 50’s top 10 for the first time, jumping 19-7. It’s joined by BossMan Dlow’s “Talk My Shit,” which debuts at No. 9. The latter, which was released as part of the rapper’s March 15 album Mr Beat the Road, is rising thanks to a dance trend using the song, while the former was teased on TikTok prior to release and is mostly being used in lip-synch clips.
