Meanwhile, Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” notches a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. survey.

The Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts 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.

Beyoncé’s Winning Hand on Global 200

Beyoncé’s “Texas Hold ‘Em” jumps to No. 1, from No. 4, where it debuted a week earlier, on the Billboard Global 200, with 59.6 million streams (up 86%) and 43,000 sold (down 10%) worldwide Feb. 16-22. Dating to the chart’s 2020 start, she previously reached the top 10 with “Break My Soul,” which hit No. 6 in 2022.

Notably, “Texas Hold ‘Em” is the second Global 200 No. 1, among 54 total so far, that has topped Billboard’s U.S.-based Hot Country Songs chart, joining Taylor Swift’s 2021 leader “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version).”

“Texas Hold ‘Em,” on Parkwood/Columbia Records/Columbia Nashville, is one of two songs that Houston native Beyoncé released Feb. 11, along with “16 Carriages.” The arrival of both tracks was announced via a Verizon commercial that aired during CBS’ broadcast of Super Bowl LVIII, ahead of the March 29 release of her new album, which follows her 2022 Renaissance LP.

Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” ranks at No. 2 after two weeks atop the Global 200; Ye (the artist formerly known as Kanye West) and Ty Dolla $ign’s “Carnival,” featuring Rich the Kid and Playboi Carti, drops 2-3 in its second week on the chart; Teddy Swims’ “Lose Control” climbs 7-4, returning to its best rank; and Swift’s “Cruel Summer” slips 3-5, following a week at No. 1 in November.

Plus, Dua Lipa’s “Training Season,” released Feb. 15, debuts at No. 6 on the Global 200 with 43.9 million streams and 10,000 sold worldwide Feb. 16-22. The song is her fifth top 10 on the chart, and her third earned consecutively, following the No. 3-peaking hits “Houdini” and “Dance the Night.”

Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things,” released on Night Street/Warner Records, tallies a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, with 43.1 million streams (up 20%) and 5,000 sold (up 12%) outside the U.S. Feb. 16-22.

Beyoncé’s “Texas Hold ‘Em” blasts 40-2 on Global Excl. U.S., with 31.5 million streams (up 136%) and 14,000 sold (up 54%) outside the U.S. She scores her second and top-charting top 10, after “Break My Soul” reached No. 9.

Creepy Nuts’ “Bling-Bang-Bang-Born” retreats to No. 3 from its No. 2 Global Excl. U.S. high.

Dua Lipa’s “Training Season” opens at No. 4 on Global Excl. U.S. with 32.9 million streams and 5,000 sold outside the U.S., marking her sixth top 10; as on the Global 200, it’s her third in a row.
