Benson Boone’s ‘Beautiful Things’ No. 1 on Billboard Global Charts for Third Week Each

Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” is the biggest song in the world, as it rebounds for a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 chart and adds a third week atop the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. survey.

Meanwhile, SZA’s “Saturn” launches at No. 5 on the Global 200, and two songs are new to the Global Excl. U.S. top 10: LE SSERAFIM’s “Easy” (47-6) and YG Marley’s “Praise Jah in the Moonlight” (11-10).


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.
