Ed Sheeran’s ‘Bad Habits’ Blasts In at No. 1 on Global Excl. U.S. Chart, Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Good 4 U’ Holds Atop Global 200

Ed Sheeran's "Bad Habits" soars in at No. 1 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, while Olivia Rodrigo's "Good 4 U" tops the Billboard Global 200 for a fifth week.

Ed Sheeran‘s “Bad Habits” soars in at No. 1 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, while Olivia Rodrigo’s “Good 4 U” tops the Billboard Global 200 for a fifth week.

Notably, Sheeran is the first act from the U.K. to top either global tally since the lists launched last September.

Plus, Måneskin’s “Beggin’ ” reaches the top five of both global charts, becoming the first top five entry on each ranking for the Italian quartet that won the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest, and Nio Garcia, J Balvin and Bad Bunny jump to the top 10 of both surveys with “AM.”

Billboard‘s two global charts (the latest of which are dated July 10) 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.

Rodrigo Has Two Longest Global 200 Reigns

Olivia Rodrigo’s “Good 4 U” tallies a fifth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200, as the leader by the southern California native drew 85.6 million streams (down 4%), the week’s top streaming sum, and sold 15,000 (up 1%) worldwide in the June 25-July 1 tracking week.

Rodrigo now claims the two longest commands in the Global 200 chart’s brief history, as her “Drivers License” led for eight weeks beginning in January; “Good 4 U” shares second place with Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me by Your Name),” which ruled for five weeks starting in April.

Ed Sheeran’s “Bad Habits” launches at No. 2 on the Global 200 with 65 million streams and 72,800 sold worldwide, the week’s top sales total.

Released June 25, the song marks the English superstar’s first Global 200 top 10 since the chart began. It eclipses his prior best, set when “Afterglow” reached No. 13 in January.

Sheeran, whose promotion of “Habits” in the tracking week included a June 30 performance on BBC One’s The One Show, sends the song in directly at No. 1 on The Official UK Singles chart, where it’s his 10th topper. He’s the ninth act with 10 or more No. 1s, a list led by Elvis Presley with 21.

BTS’ “Butter” dips 2-3 after two weeks atop the Global 200 and Doja Cat’s “Kiss Me More,” featuring SZA, rises 5-4, after hitting No. 3.

Måneskin achieves its first Global 200 top five, or even top 10, hit as “Beggin’ ” surges 12-5, up 50% to 66.5 million streams and 88% to 9,800 sold worldwide.

Meanwhile, the song, written by Peggy Farina and Bob Gaudio, adds another chapter to its chart history, after it was originally a No. 16 Billboard Hot 100 hit for the Frankie Valli-fronted Four Seasons in 1967. In 2009, Norwegian duo Madcon returned it to the top 40, taking its version to No. 34. Plus, Phillip Phillips’ cover hit No. 20 on the Rock Digital Song Sales chart in 2012 after he performed it as a top-three finalist (and the eventual champion) on American Idol that season.

Elsewhere in the Global 200’s top 10, Nio Garcia, J Balvin and Bad Bunny soar 40-10 with “AM.” Following the first tracking week for its remix adding J Balvin and Bad Bunny, the song (first released in January) sports gains of 173% to 70.8 million streams and 273% to 2,400 sold globally.

Garcia, from Puerto Rico, and J Balvin, from Colombia, each earn their first Global 200 top 10. Bad Bunny, also from Puerto Rico, posts his fourth, a total that includes his three-week No. 1 “Dákiti,” with Jhay Cortez.

Sheeran Scores First Global No. 1 for a UK Act

Ed Sheeran’s “Bad Habits” premieres at No. 1 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart with 48.7 million streams and 41,600 sold in territories outside the U.S. in the June 25-July 1 tracking week.

The Halifax, West Yorkshire-born Sheeran scores not only his first Global Excl. U.S. No. 1, but the first leader on either global chart by an artist from the UK.
