Japan’s ARASHI debuts with its new Bruno Mars collab.
On Sept. 14, Billboard announced the launch of two new global surveys. The Billboard Global 200 and the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts rank the most popular songs in the world, based on streams and download sales from more than 200 territories, powered by Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
We've already seen the scope of international acts on both tallies, and this week brings even more artists shining in the global spotlight.
While Justin Bieber’s “Holy,” featuring Chance the Rapper, leads 22 debuts on the Oct. 3-dated Billboard Global 200 (at No. 3) and 18 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart (where “Holy” starts at No. 5), a sea of acts from outside of North America flood the charts.
