Additionally, Masked Wolf’s “Astronaut in the Ocean” ascends to the top five of both tallies and Kali Uchis’ “Telepatía” hits the Global 200’s top 10.
Billboard‘s two global charts (the latest of which are dated April 3) began last September and rank songs based on streaming and sales activity culled from more than 200 territories around the world, as compiled by MRC Data. The Billboard Global 200 is inclusive of worldwide data and the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart comprises data from territories excluding the U.S.
Chart rankings are based on a weighted formula incorporating official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of audio and video music services, as well as download sales, the latter of which reflect purchases from full-service digital music retailers from around the world, with sales from direct-to-consumer (D2C) sites excluded from the charts’ calculations.
Global Fans Pick ‘Peaches’
Justin Bieber’s “Peaches,” featuring Daniel Caesar and Giveon, soars in at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 with 82.9 million streams and 21,000 sold, the top sums worldwide in the March 19-25 tracking week.
The song is the first Global 200 leader for each artist, as well as Bieber’s sixth top 10, as he passes fellow Canadian Drake for the most top 10s in the chart’s brief history. Caesar (also from Canada) and Giveon (U.S.) each notch their first top 10.
Silk Sonic, the duo of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, holds at its No. 2 high on the Global 200 with “Leave the Door Open” and The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears” pushes 4-3, after reaching No. 2.
Bieber’s “Hold On” soars from No. 20 to No. 4 on the Global 200 (43.8 million streams, up 53%; 7,000 sold, up 87%), surpassing its prior No. 8 best.
Rounding out the Global 200’s top five, Masked Wolf’s “Astronaut in the Ocean” rises 7-5, as the hit from the Australian rapper, born Harry Michael, reaches the tier for the first time.
Elsewhere in the Global 200’s top 10, Colombian-American Kali Uchis make her first trip to the region, as “Telepatía” climbs 11-10.
‘Peaches’ Also No. 1 Outside U.S.
Justin Bieber’s “Peaches,” featuring Daniel Caesar and Giveon, concurrently bounds in at No. 1 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart with 52.5 million streams and 5,500 sold in territories outside the U.S. in the March 19-25 tracking week.
Each act’s first No. 1 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart, “Peaches” is also Bieber’s record-extending sixth top 10, and the first each for Caesar and Giveon.
The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears” returns to its No. 2 Global Excl. U.S. high, from No. 4, and Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” holds at No. 3 after it logged its first nine weeks on the list at No. 1, a record reign on the chart so far.
Masked Wolf’s “Astronaut in the Ocean” enters the Global Excl. U.S. chart’s top five, ascending 8-4, and BTS’ “Dynamite” drops 2-5, after it totaled eight weeks at No. 1 (nonconsecutively) in September-January.
Plus, Bieber’s “Hold On” charges 19-7 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart, besting its previous No. 9 peak.
