The latest Global Excl. U.S. list sports 14 songs that were performed and/or nominated for a Grammy, and half of those rank among the chart's top 20 streaming gainers. The 14 tracks averaged a 16% increase in U.S. streams in the week ending March 18 and a slightly higher boost internationally: 17.5% outside the U.S., according to MRC Data.
The biggest international gains were for two of the night's big winners, with record of the year recipient Billie Eilish's "Everything I Wanted" (a re-entry at No. 115) up 73% in streams outside the U.S. and "Levitating," by England's Dua Lipa, who won for best pop vocal album (for Future Nostalgia), featuring DaBaby (up 17-12), up by 52%. The increases far outpaced their domestic bumps of 48% and 30%, respectively.
"Levitating" drew 46.8 million global streams for the week, with 14.9 million in the U.S. and 31.9 million beyond. "Everything I Wanted" attracted 16 million global streams (5.4 million U.S.; 10.6 million non-U.S.).
Plus, while neither Lady Gaga nor Ariana Grande attended the Grammys in person, their duet "Rain on Me" (122-98) won for best pop duo/group performance and subsequently spiked by 18% in non-U.S. streams, compared to 7% domestically.
Other songs that made notable increases outside the U.S. following the Grammys were "Dynamite" by South Korea's BTS (4-2), "Say So" by Doja Cat (170-132) and "Watermelon Sugar" by England's Harry Styles (51-26), with respective gains of 28%, 25% and 24% outside the U.S. All three songs were nominated and performed on the Grammys, with "Watermelon Sugar" winning for best pop solo performance.
