Justin Bieber‘s “Peaches,” featuring Daniel Caesar and Giveon, remains the biggest song in the world, as it spends a second week at No. 1 on both the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts, a week after it debuted atop both tallies.
Meanwhile, Lil Nas X‘s “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” soars in at No. 2 on both rankings.
Billboard‘s two global charts (the latest of which are dated April 10) 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.
More Sweet Success for ‘Peaches’
Justin Bieber’s “Peaches,” featuring Daniel Caesar and Giveon, adds its second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200, with 83.1 million streams (essentially even week-over-week) and 17,000 sold (down 19%) worldwide in the March 26-April 1 tracking week.
Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” launches at No. 2 on the Global 200. As previously reported, the song, propelled by its buzzy official video (with three versions available during its first week: its original version; its “Satan’s Extended Version”; and its “But Lil Nas X Is Silent the Entire Time” instrumental version), debuts at No. 1 on the U.S.-based Billboard Hot 100, as well as the Official U.K. Singles chart.
Masked Wolf’s “Astronaut in the Ocean” rises 5-3 on the Global 200; “Leave the Door Open” by Silk Sonic, the duo of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, drops to No. 4 from its No. 2 high; and The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears” slips 3-5, after reaching No. 2.
‘Peaches,’ ‘Montero’ Also Nos. 1, 2 Outside U.S.
Justin Bieber’s “Peaches,” featuring Daniel Caesar and Giveon, concurrently keeps at No. 1 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, leading the list for a second week with 56.9 million streams (up 8%) and 6,000 sold (up 7%) in territories outside the U.S. in the March 26-April 1 tracking week.
As on the Global 200, Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” bounds in at No. 2 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart.
The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears” retreats to No. 3 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart, from its No. 2 best; Masked Wolf’s “Astronaut in the Ocean” repeats at its No. 4 high; and Silk Sonic’s “Leave the Door Open” swings 8-5, returning to its peak so far.
