Since the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. rankings began in September 2020, Billboard has a reported on an increasingly long list of international artists, territories and languages that have achieved chart success.
On the July 10-dated Global 200, an English-language song by an American artist debuts, and yet, it is a first: Bo Burnham's "All Eyes on Me," at No. 178, is the first comedy title to hit Billboard's global charts. In the week ending July 1, the song drew 8 million streams and sold 2,500 downloads worldwide, according to MRC Data.
"Eyes" is from Burnham's latest special Inside, which premiered May 30 on Netflix, followed by its accompanying album, Inside (The Songs), June 10. After the project's initial release, three songs got special treatment, each receiving an official music video. First was "Welcome to the Internet" on June 4, followed by "White Woman's Instagram" a week later and then "Eyes" on June 16.
