Tommy Richman’s ‘Million Dollar Baby’ Breaks No. 1 Record on TikTok Billboard Top 50

Tommy Richman’s “Million Dollar Baby” sets a new record on the TikTok Billboard Top 50, reigning for a chart-leading seventh week as of the June 29-dated list.

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 June 17-23. Activity on TikTok is not included in Billboard charts except for the TikTok Billboard Top 50.

Richman’s seventh week atop the TikTok Billboard Top 50 surpasses Mitski’s “My Love Mine All Mine” as the longest reign since the chart began in September 2023.

It’s fitting that “Million Dollar Baby” assumes the mantle of the lengthiest No. 1. Though the song was originally released in full on April 26, it was first teased on TikTok via a snippet that quickly went viral, with 13 million global views on the original clip to date.

While pent-up demand for the song drove its initial success on the ranking, TikTok uploads featuring “Million Dollar Baby” in the months since have been paced by a dance trend, as well as a theme where users show how dating their significant other has changed them (“Black wife effect,” “white boyfriend effect,” etc.).

“Million Dollar Baby” has peaked so far at No. 2 on the multimetric Billboard Hot 100. It ranks at No. 5 on the latest survey via 53.2 million radio audience impressions, 35.8 million official U.S. streams and 5,000 downloads sold in the week ending June 20, according to Luminate.

It reigns on the TikTok Billboard Top 50 over Tinashe’s “Nasty,” which lifts 3-2 for a new peak. As previously mentioned, “Nasty,” which was released April 12, first made the chart in late May and has steadily risen thanks to a dance trend and comedy videos attached to its “I’ve been a nasty girl” lyric.

“Nasty” concurrently jumps to a new peak of No. 62 on the Hot 100 with 7.9 million streams, 2.7 million audience impressions and 1,000 downloads.

Sabrina Carpenter’s “Please Please Please,” which concurrently hits No. 1 on the Hot 100, falls to No. 3 on the TikTok Billboard Top 50, followed by Billie Eilish’s “Birds of a Feather” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” rounding out the top five.

A pair of songs reach the chart’s top 10 for the first time, one in its third week and the other as a brand-new debut. At No. 7, Jordan Adetunji’s “Kehlani” leads the pair after leaping from No. 25. Adetunji’s ode to the R&B singer has achieved TikTok success in part due to Kehlani herself, who hopped on its virality with a May 24 upload vibing to the song with the paparazzi in the background. A dance trend featuring the tune has dominated its more recent highest performing clips from creators.

“Kehlani” is currently bubbling under the Hot 100 and appears at No. 33 on the latest Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs tally on the strength of 5.6 million streams.

Ella Langley’s “You Look Like You Love Me” is the other new top 10 on the TikTok Billboard Top 50, debuting at No. 9. The song, which features Riley Green, bows despite being released in full on June 21. That’s because, like Richman’s “Million Dollar Baby” before it, the song benefited from pre-release virality with clips uploaded to Langley’s TikTok account as well as live performances of the song from Langley and Green’s joint tour that’s been progressing the last few months.

Further chart action for “You Look Like You Love Me” is expected on the Billboard charts dated July 6, which will incorporate streaming, airplay and sales data from June 21-27.
