Plus, Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers” resurges to the top 10 of both the Global 200 (29-8) and Global Excl. U.S. (32-10) after Cyrus performed it, and it garnered her two wins, at the Grammy Awards Feb. 4.

The Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts, which began in September 2020, rank songs based on streaming and sales activity culled from more than 200 territories around the world, as compiled by Luminate. The Global 200 is inclusive of worldwide data and the Global Excl. U.S. chart comprises data from territories excluding the United States.

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.

Boone Bounds to No. 1 on Global 200

Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” vaults 6-1 on the Billboard Global 200 with 52.8 million streams (up 31%) and 13,000 sold (up 24%) worldwide Feb. 2-8. A week earlier, the song, released on Night Street/Warner Records, became the first top 10 for the 21-year-old singer-songwriter from Monroe, Wash. He previously hit No. 48 in May 2022 with “In the Stars” and No. 79 in November 2021 with “Ghost Town.”

Plus, Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers” returns to the Global 200’s top 10 (29-8), boosted by buzz at the Grammys, where it won for record of the year and best pop solo performance – marking Cyrus’ first career Grammy wins – and she performed the song. It soars with 37.4 million streams (up 38%) and 33,000 sold (up 1,271%) worldwide. It spent 13 weeks at No. 1 starting upon its debut in January 2023.
