Plus, Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso,” Shaboozey’s “A Bar Song (Tipsy),” Tommy Richman’s “Million Dollar Baby” and ZICO’s “Spot!,” featuring JENNIE, of BLACKPINK, all make top 10 moves on the global surveys.

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.

“Fortnight” notches a second week atop the Global 200, with 99.8 million streams (down 44%) and 10,000 sold (down 63%) worldwide April 26-May 2.

Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso” percolates 17-2 on the Global 200, two weeks after it entered the chart at No. 10, becoming her first top 10. It drew 85.8 million streams (up 35%) and sold 6,000 (up 18%) worldwide in the latest tracking week.

Artemas’ “I Like the Way You Kiss Me” jumps 10-3 on the Global 200, after previously reaching No. 2; Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” bounds 12-4, following seven weeks on top beginning in February; and Hozier’s  “Too Sweet” soars 13-5, rebounding two weeks after hitting No. 1.

Shaboozey’s “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” roars 33-6 on the Global 200 with 56.4 million streams (up 68%) and 25,000 sold (up 48%) worldwide, marking his first top 10. The single interpolates J-Kwon’s 2004 hip-hop hit “Tipsy.”

Also new in the Global 200’s top 10, Tommy Richman’s first entry on the chart, “Million Dollar Baby,” launches at No. 10 with 50.5 million streams and 4,000 sold worldwide following its April 26 release, after the signee to Brent Faiyaz’s imprint had teased it on TikTok.
