The Kid LAROI & Justin Bieber ‘Stay’ Strong Atop Both Billboard Global Charts

Billboard‘s two global charts (the latest of which are dated Aug. 28) 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 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’ Scores Fourth Week Atop Global 200

“Stay” by The Kid LAROI, from Australia, and Justin Bieber, from Canada, logs a fourth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200. The song drew 123.7 million streams (up 14%) and sold 24,800 downloads (up 18%) worldwide in the Aug. 13-19 tracking week.

Improving from 108.5 million the week before, “Stay” is the fourth track in 2021 to log multiple weeks of over 100 million global streams, after Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” (130.1 million, 138.9 million, 110.5 million; Jan. 23-Feb. 6); Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” (109.3 million, 107.2 million; April 17-24); and BTS’ “Butter” (289.5 million, 169.9 million, 120.9 million, 101.7 million; June 5-19, July 3).

Ed Sheeran’s “Bad Habits” holds at No. 2 on the Global 200, after a week atop the chart; Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow’s “Industry Baby” keeps at its No. 3 high; Måneskin’s “Beggin’ ” remains at No. 4 after hitting No. 3; and Olivia Rodrigo’s “Good 4 U” rebounds 6-5 after six weeks at No. 1.

Elsewhere in the Global 200’s top 10, Farruko’s “Pepas” bounds 16-8 (58 million streams, up 8%; 3,700 sold, up 10%, worldwide). The singer-songwriter from Puerto Rico notches his first top 10 on the tally.

Plus, Doja Cat’s “Need to Know” reaches the Global 200’s top 10, rising 12-10 (51.8 million streams, up 9%; 2,300 sold, up 5%, globally). It’s the Los Angeles native’s third top 10 on the chart, following “Streets” (No. 8, February) and “Kiss Me More,” featuring SZA (No. 3, May).

‘Stay’ No. 1 for Second Week Outside U.S.

The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber’s “Stay” adds a second week atop the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, with 92.8 million streams (up 18%) and 10,500 sold (up 24%) in territories outside the U.S. in the Aug. 13-19 tracking week.

The rest of the Global Excl. U.S. chart’s top five holds in place: Ed Sheeran’s “Bad Habits,” at No. 2 after five weeks at No. 1; Måneskin’s “Beggin’,” at No. 3 after hitting No. 2; Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow’s “Industry Baby,” at its No. 4 best; and Olivia Rodrigo’s “Good 4 U,” at No. 5 following five weeks at its No. 2 peak.

Plus, Farruko’s “Pepas” jumps 13-6 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart (47.2 million streams, up 6%; 1,100 sold, up 23%, outside the U.S.) Farruko earns his second Global Excl. U.S. top 10, after reaching No. 8 last September as featured, with Rosalía, on Sech, Daddy Yankee and J Balvin’s “Relación.”
