Every Tuesday, Billboard releases all of their charts. As I am a “citizen of the world,” I will bring you the Billboard Global 200 Top 10 every week. The Global 200 ranks the top songs based on sales and streaming data from 200 territories worldwide. Let’s get to it!
1. Olivia Rodrigo – Drivers License
The former Disney Channel’s High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star debuted her first single last week at number 1. That’s where she’ll stay this week. Since Drivers License was released, it has broken the record for most daily streams on Spotify…twice. The song has reached the top of charts in Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Netherlands, Norway, the UK, and here in the US.
2. Ariana Grande – 34+35
Nobody can explain this track the way Lewis Capaldi does, so I’ll leave you with this:
Jumping 9 spots from 11 to 2, here’s 34+35:
3. The Weeknd – Blinding Lights
20 weeks on the chart and this song is still up near the top. From the Canadian star’s fourth studio album After Hours, Blinding Lights moves down just one spot to number 3.
4. Bad Bunny and Jhay Cortez – Dákiti
Staying put at number 4 this week, Dákiti reaches its 12th week on the chart. If you don’t speak Spanish, this song is basically about getting drunk, smoking weed, his lady’s butt, and doin’ it.
I can’t believe I fit a Ladies Man reference in here. I’m proud of myself. Anyway, bending the rules of reggaetón, here is Dákiti by the Puerto Rican duo.
5. 24kGoldn ft. Iann Dior – Mood
Staying put at number 5, the 20-year-old TikTok sensation 24kGoldn reaches his 20th week on the chart with Mood. After breaking out on TikTok, he had some sound advice for his fellow TikTokers in an interview with the New York Post “Don’t make anything you wouldn’t want to watch yourself.”
6. BTS – Dynamite (방탄소년단)
The K-Pop boy band slides 3 slots to number 6 this week. This is also their 20th week on the chart after their debut at number 1. Dynamite has over 800 million views on YouTube and over 600 million streams on Spotify.
Those numbers don’t surprise me one bit. After living in South Korea for almost three years, I know how loyal Korean pop fans can be.
7. Dua Lipa ft. DaBaby – Levitating
The British vocalist sits at number 7 once again this week with the hit from her second studio album, Future Nostalgia. Warner Music got a huge win by signing Dua Lipa in 2015.
8. SZA – Good Days
SZA will stay at number 8 this week, her 8th week on the chart with Good Days. The American neo soul vocalist announced yesterday that she wants Frank Ocean on the remix for this track.
I think that’s something we can all get behind.
9. The Weeknd – Save Your Tears
Abel reaches the top-10 again this week after jumping from 13 to 9. This is the fourth single from After Hours, and his second on the chart this week. The Weeknd continues his on-going theme throughout his music videos from After Hours by revealing his botox-injected face of nightmares.
10. Justin Bieber – Anyone
The single released by Def Jam Recordings stays in the top-10 for a third week, dropping from number 6. Bieber’s character seems to be evolving from “idiot kid” to an adult with regrets. He recently reflected on the 7-year anniversary of his DUI arrest in Miami in an Instagram post.
You love to see that he’s learned from his mistakes and is trying to move on with his life. I know the feeling…minus the being famous thing.
I hope you enjoyed this breakdown of the Billboard Global 200 Top 10.
