Bad Bunny & Jhay Cortez Top Billboard’s Global Charts, Mariah Carey & Wham! Jingle to Top Five

Bad Bunny and Jhay Cortez's "Dakiti" returns to No. 1 on both the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts.

Bad Bunny and Jhay Cortez‘s “Dakiti” returns to No. 1 on both the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts.

Plus, Mariah Carey‘s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and Wham!‘s “Last Christmas” both dash to the top five of each tally.

The two charts (the latest of which are dated Dec. 12) premiered in September and rank songs based on streaming and sales activity culled from more than 200 territories around the world, as compiled by Nielsen Music/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.

‘Dakiti’ Ties for Most Weeks Atop Global 200

Bad Bunny and Jhay Cortez’s “Dakiti” rebounds from No. 2 to No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 with 121.4 million streams, up 13%, and 3,000 downloads sold, down 8%, globally in the week ending Dec. 3. The streaming sum is the third-best in a week since the chart began, trailing only the weekly highs for BTS’ “Life Goes On” a week earlier (152.5 million, Dec. 5) and BLACKPINK’s “Lovesick Girls” (123.8 million, Oct. 17).

“Dakiti” adds a third total week atop the Global 200, tying for the most time on top so far. BTS’ “Dynamite” and Cardi B’s “WAP,” featuring Megan Thee Stallion, previously each led for three weeks.
