The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber‘s “Stay” continues as the biggest song in the world, as it logs an 11th week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 chart and a ninth frame atop the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. survey (both dated Oct. 23).
Plus, “Money” by BLACKPINK‘s Lisa reaches the top 10 of both the Global 200, where it jumps 19-10, and the Global Excl. U.S. chart (11-7).
Billboard‘s two global charts, which began in September 2020 and recently finished their first year, 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 ranks 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.
‘Stay’ No. 1, ‘Shivers’ Top 5 on Global 200
“Stay” by The Kid LAROI, from Australia, and Justin Bieber, from Canada, posts an 11th week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200. The song drew 91.4 million streams (down 9%) and sold 19,300 downloads (up 23%, helped by its placement in the iTunes Store’s “69¢ Pop Hits” promotion) worldwide in the Oct. 8-14 tracking week.
Nigeria’s CKay holds at his No. 2 high on the Global 200 with “Love Nwantiti (Ah Ah Ah)”; Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow’s “Industry Baby” keeps at No. 3, after reaching No. 2; and Ed Sheeran’s “Bad Habits” rebounds 5-4, following a week at No. 1, and his “Shivers” hits a new No. 5 best, up from No. 6.
Elsewhere in the Global 200 top 10, “Money” by BLACKPINK’s Lisa soars 19-10. Following the Oct. 10 premiere of its “dance practice” video, building upon the momentum of its “exclusive performance” clip released Sept. 23, the song sports gains of 28% to 66.3 million and 6% to 4,400 sold in the latest tracking week.
Lisa earns her second Global 200 top 10, after “Lalisa” debuted at its No. 2 peak on the Sept. 25 chart. South Korea’s BLACKPINK, with Lisa, born in Thailand, as a member, also boasts two top 10s on the survey, as “Ice Cream,” with Selena Gomez, hit No. 8 in September 2020 and “Lovesick Girls” reached No. 2 the following month.
‘Money’ Also Cashes on Global Excl. U.S.
The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber’s “Stay” adds a ninth week atop the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, with 72.1 million streams (down 9%) and 7,100 sold (down 17%) in territories outside the U.S. in the Oct. 8-14 tracking week.
CKay’s “Love Nwantiti (Ah Ah Ah)” repeats at its No. 2 Global Excl. U.S. best; Ed Sheeran’s “Bad Habits” lifts 4-3, after five weeks at No. 1; Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow’s “Industry Baby” climbs 5-4, following its No. 2 peak; and Sheeran’s “Shivers” reaches the top five (6-5).
Plus, Lisa’s “Money” ascends 11-7 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart with 61.5 million streams (up 28%) and 3,000 sold (down 3%) beyond the U.S. As on the Global 200, she achieves her second Global Excl. U.S. top 10, after “Lalisa” (No. 2, Sept. 25). With Lisa as a member, BLACKPINK has also tallied two Global Excl. U.S. top 10s: “Ice Cream” (No. 6, September 2020) and “Lovesick Girls” (No. 1, upon its debut, October 2020).
