Hot 100 First-Timers: Ella Langley Scores First Entry With Riley Green Duet ‘You Look Like You Love Me’

Ella Langley is officially a Billboard Hot 100-charting artist, as the singer-songwriter arrives with her viral duet, “You Look Like You Love Me,” with Riley Green.

Released June 21 via SAWGOD/Columbia Records, the track debuts at No. 53 on the Hot 100 (dated July 6) with 8.6 million official U.S. streams, 14,000 in radio airplay audience and 3,000 downloads sold in its first week, according to Luminate. It also opens at No. 15 on the Hot Country Songs chart, where it’s Langley’s second entry, after “Strangers,” with Kameron Marlowe (No. 43 peak, February).

“You Look Like You Love Me” (which marks Green’s fifth Hot 100 hit) was boosted by activity on TikTok leading up to its official release. Before releasing the song, Langley and Green shared snippets on TikTok, as well as live performances of it on their joint tour. One version of the song has soundtracked over 225,000 clips on TikTok, while another has been used in over 100,000 videos. Their teasing of the track helped it debut at No. 9 on last week’s TikTok Billboard Top 50 chart (dated June 29).

Langley first appeared on Billboard’s charts dated June 3, 2023, when her debut EP, Excuse the Mess, entered at No. 19 on Heatseekers Albums (which ranks the top-selling albums each week by new or emerging acts). The set includes a collaboration with fellow recent Hot 100 First-Timer Koe Wetzel.

Langley recently concluded a supporting stint on Green’s Ain’t My Last Rodeo Tour, as well as Hardy’s Quit!! Tour. She has other supporting gigs lined up on Morgan Wallen’s One Night at a Time Tour, Luke Bryan’s Mind of a Country Boy Tour and Dierks Bentley’s Gravel & Gold Tour.

“You Look Like You Love Me” is slated to appear on Langley’s debut full-length, Hungover, due Aug. 2.
