Ella Langley’s ‘You Look Like You Love Me’ Breaks Into TikTok Billboard Top 50’s Top 5

The TikTok Billboard Top 50 chart’s top four remains intact from the June 29-dated tally, while a newcomer in Ella Langley joins them in the top five of the July 6 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 June 24-30. Activity on TikTok is not included in Billboard charts except for the TikTok Billboard Top 50.

Tommy Richman’s “Million Dollar Baby” leads the list again, stringing together its eighth week at No. 1, the longest reign of any song since the chart began in September 2023.

The song is followed by Tinashe’s “Nasty,” Sabrina Carpenter’s “Please Please Please” and Billie Eilish’s “Birds of a Feather” at Nos. 2-4, respectively, their same order on the June 29 list.

But not all is the same in the top five. Ella Langley’s “You Look Like You Love Me,” featuring Riley Green, follows its No. 9 debut with a four-spot jump to No. 5.

Its leap is concurrent with the song’s premiere on the multimetric Billboard Hot 100; “You Look Like You Love Me” bows at No. 53, Langley’s first time on the Hot 100 and Green’s highest ranking appearance since Thomas Rhett’s “Half of Me,” on which he was also featured, peaked at No. 52 in 2022.

“You Look Like You Love Me” earned 8.6 million official U.S. streams and sold 3,000 downloads in the June 21-27 tracking week, according to Luminate.

The tune was released June 21 but had been teased on TikTok prior, going as far back as the beginning of May, building pre-release hype. The ensuing trend surrounding the song has involved all forms of love, from pets to significant others to offspring. In particular, many uploads show photo collages of couples on their wedding day.

“You Look Like You Love Me” leapfrogs Jordan Adetunji’s “Kehlani,” which also entered the TikTok Billboard Top 50’s top 10 on the June 29 survey; it lifts 7-6 on the latest list. “Kehlani” is mostly driven by a dance trend on TikTok, though uploads from its namesake artist have also helped the song soar on TikTok and beyond.

“Kehlani” concurrently debuts at No. 70 on the Hot 100; like Langley, it’s Adetunji’s first appearance on the chart. In the week ending June 27, it earned 8.1 million streams and 511,000 radio audience impressions.

A pair of songs populate the TikTok Billboard Top 50’s top 10 for the first time, led by BossMan DLow’s “Shake Dat Ass (Twerk Song),” which follows its No. 25 debut on the June 29 ranking by leaping to No. 9. It’s followed by a debut from BlackMayo, whose “Jus’ Know” starts at No. 10.

“Shake Dat Ass,” featured on the rapper’s 2023 album Too Slippery, has achieved recent TikTok virality via a dance trend. “Jus’ Know,” meanwhile, has been out since 2018 but is also the recipient of a dance-fueled trend, featuring a high-profile upload in the form of newly drafted NBA player Jared McCain, whose video in his Philadelphia 76ers jersey has accumulated over 2 million favorites.

“Jus’ Know” sports a 63% boost in streams to 200,000 in the week ending June 27, while “Shake Dat Ass” achieves a 203% jump to 1.5 million listens.
