Billboard's two worldwide tallies rank songs based on streaming and sales data from more than 200 territories.

Olivia Rodrigo's "Good 4 U" adds a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 and BTS' "Butter" spends a third frame atop the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart.

Plus, Bad Bunny's "Yonaguni" starts at Nos. 3 and 4 on the respective rankings. The song by the Puerto Rican rapper and singer-songwriter is sung mostly in Spanish, with added lyrics in Japanese.

Billboard's two global charts (the latest of which are dated June 19) 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.

'Good 4 U' Best on Global 200

Olivia Rodrigo's "Good 4 U" rebounds from No. 2 for a second week at No. 1 on the Global 200, three weeks after opening at the summit, with 109.5 million streams (down 11%) and 17,600 sold (down 5%) worldwide in the June 4-10 tracking week.

Both of Rodrigo's Global 200 No. 1s have now led for multiple weeks, as the California native's breakthrough smash "Drivers License" dominated for eight weeks beginning in January.

BTS' "Butter" drops to No. 2 after two weeks atop the Billboard Global 200, while Bad Bunny's "Yonaguni" soars onto the chart at No. 3 with 101.2 million streams and 5,800 sold globally in its first week, following its June 4 release.

"Yonaguni" (named after an island in Japan) starts as Bad Bunny's third Global 200 top 10 since the list launched, after "Dákiti," with Jhay Cortez, reigned for three weeks in November-December and "La Noche de Anoche" hit No. 7 in December.

Rauw Alejandro's "Todo de Ti" slips to No. 4 on the Global 200 from its No. 3 high and The Weeknd and Ariana Grande's "Save Your Tears" descends 4-5 following its one-week command in May.

'Butter' No. 1 for 3rd Week Outside U.S.

"Butter" by South Korea's BTS logs a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, with 106.1 million streams (down 30%) and 36,600 sold (down 12%) in territories outside the U.S. in the June 4-10 tracking week.

Olivia Rodrigo's "Good 4 U" posts a third week at its No. 2 high on the Global Excl. U.S. chart, while Rauw Alejandro's "Todo de Ti" keeps at its No. 3 best.

As it bounds in at No. 3 on the Global 200, Bad Bunny's "Yonaguni" enters the Global Excl. U.S. survey at No. 4 with 74.2 million streams and 1,000 sold outside the U.S. He claims his third Global Excl. U.S. top 10, following "Dákiti" (No. 1, five weeks) and "La Noche de Anoche" (No. 8).

The Weeknd and Ariana Grande's "Save Your Tears" rounds out the Global Excl. U.S. top five, falling 4-5 after reaching No. 2.
