They join Drake in having led either global survey.
Breaking down their countries of origin, Bieber and Caesar are the first Canadian artists to rule the Global Excl. U.S. chart. Two weeks earlier, Drake became the first Canadian to top the Global 200, thanks to his No. 1 arrival with "What's Next."
Before Bieber and Caesar (both from Ontario; Giveon is from the U.S.), The Weeknd came closest to leading the Global Excl. U.S. chart among Canadians, reaching No. 2 with both "Blinding Lights" and "Save Your Tears" (dating to the global charts' September 2020 starts).
