Bringing you this week’s Asian Chart Weekly! We are bringing you a weekly update of what are the top hits and artists trending in Asia as a region across all international and local genres of music!
The Top 30 Asian Chart combines Spotify Top 50 Country Charts on every Friday of the week for 8 ASEAN countries Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.
* Each song is given a index weightage, #1 with 50 points, #2 with 49 points etc in each country’s charts to generate a total sum. Songs are then ranked with the highest to lowest of their points weightage.
For this week, we thought it’d be fun to introduce songs that specifically went viral on Tiktok!
Ranked at #24, French-Malian, Aya Nakamura, has her single “Copines” staying on the Asian charts despite being released two years ago! Thanks to the dance challenge that went viral on Tiktok, the song has been used in over 800,000 videos!
Ranked at #30, is a newcomer to the charts, Australian rapper, Masked Wolf, with his track “Astronaut In The Ocean”. The song was initially released with minor success in Australia. However, when the track started to gain popularity on social media and being used in a variety of Tiktok clips, the track was re-released in 2021 under Electra Records, giving it another push for the song release.
