Chartmetric measures TikTok trending music in new chart

Data and analytics company Chartmetric has established a new weekly TikTok Chart showing trending artists’ tracks right as they take off. The chart lets users search by velocity (how fast a track is gaining traction) and by rankings that extend deep into the leaderboard (down to the 1,000th-ranked track).

He added, “So many up-and-coming artists who become super popular seem to appear quite suddenly to outsiders, but in many cases, they were not overnight successes. You can see that there’s a story, a buildup to their success. The artists on this chart didn’t come out of nowhere. All biggest stars may dominate the top of other charts, but you’ll find many artists right below, millions more. We wanted to show what’s happening for those millions more dynamically.”
