Lil Nas X’s ‘Montero’ & Justin Bieber’s ‘Peaches’ Top Billboard Global Charts, BTS’ ‘Film Out’ Hits Top 5

Billboard‘s two global charts (the latest of which are dated April 17) 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.

‘Montero’ Moves to No. 1 on Global 200

A week after debuting at the runner-up spot, Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” rises 2-1 for its first week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200, with 109.3 million streams (up 12%), marking the week’s top streaming total, and 20,000 sold (down 24%) worldwide in the April 2-8 tracking week.

The song is the first to log over 100 million streams globally in over two months, since Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” broke that barrier for three weeks in January-February. Dating to the Global 200’s inception, the only hit other than “Montero” by solo males to surpass the threshold is Bad Bunny and Jhay Cortez’s “Dakiti,” for four weeks in November-December; “Montero” is the first song by one solo male and no accompanying artists to draw over 100 million streams worldwide in a week in that span. (BTS’ “Life Goes On” logged an overall weekly record 152.5 million streams globally since the chart began, as reflected on the Dec. 5-dated ranking.)
