LISA Earns Her First Billboard Global Excl. U.S. No. 1 With Debut of ‘Rockstar’

LISA’s “Rockstar” launches at No. 1 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, becoming her first leader. She becomes the third member of BLACKPINK with a solo No. 1 on the survey, with the group itself having notched three chart-toppers. BLACKPINK was already the only group with multiple members that have led the list solo and now becomes the first act with as many as three members with No. 1s on their own.

Plus, two songs enter the Global Excl. U.S. top 10: Jimin and Loco’s “Smeraldo Garden Marching Band” debuts on the chart at No. 7 and Karol G’s “Si Antes Te Hubiera Conocido” jumps 12-8.

On the Billboard Global 200, Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso” rebounds from No. 2 for a second week at No. 1, while LISA’s “Rockstar” rolls in at No. 4.

The Global 200 and 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.

LISA’s “Rockstar” arrives at No. 1 on Global Excl. U.S. with 94.2 million streams and 44,000 sold outside the U.S. June 28-July 4, following its June 27 release.

The Thai rapper, singer and dancer, who earned two prior top Global Excl. U.S. top 10s, is the third member of BLACKPINK with a solo No. 1 on the chart, while the South Korean group itself has logged three leaders. Here’s a look at their No. 1s, all of which have debuted in the top spot:

  • “Rockstar,” LISA, one week at No. 1 (to date), Jul 13, 2024
  • “You & Me,” Jennie, one, Oct. 21, 2023
  • “Shut Down,” BLACKPINK, one, Oct. 1, 2022
  • “Pink Venom,” BLACKPINK, three weeks, beginning Sept. 3, 2022
  • “On the Ground,” Rosé, one, March 27, 2021
  • “Lovesick Girls,” BLACKPINK, one, Oct. 17, 2020

BLACKPINK previously made history as the only group with more than one member that has led Global Excl. U.S. solo. It now becomes the first act with as many as three members with No. 1s as soloists. (The group’s Jisoo has hit a No. 2 best, with “Flower” in April 2023.)

Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso” dips to No. 2 after six weeks atop Global Excl. U.S. beginning in May and her follow-up “Please Please Please” falls 2-3, two weeks after it reigned; Billie Eilish’s “Birds of a Feather” slips to No. 4 from at its No. 3 high; and FloyyMenor and Cris Mj’s “Gata Only” retreats 4-5 after reaching No. 3.

Jimin and Loco’s “Smeraldo Garden Marching Band” debuts at No. 7 on Global Excl. U.S. with 94.2 million streams and 34,000 sold outside the U.S., following its June 28 release. Jimin notches his fourth top 10 on the chart, tying V for the second-most among BTS members, following Jung Kook with six (including three No. 1s). The group’s Jin and SUGA each boast one top 10, while BTS has banked 11 (including seven No. 1s). Loco logs his first entry on the tally.

Elsewhere in the Global Excl. U.S. top 10,  Karol G’s “Si Antes Te Hubiera Conocido” surges to No. 8 from No. 12, where it debuted a week earlier. Released June 20, the song, Karol G’s seventh top 10 on the chart, drew 46 million streams (up 15%) in its second full tracking frame.

Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso” reheats 2-1 for a second week atop the Global 200, three weeks after it first led, with 92.9 million streams (down 6%) and 9,000 sold (down 9%) worldwide June 28-July 4.

Carpenter’s “Please Please Please” places at No. 2 on the Global 200, following two weeks at No. 1. Already the first artist to hold the chart’s top two spots for three consecutive weeks, the singer-songwriter-actress extends her achievement to a fourth frame.

Shaboozey’s “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” holds at its No. 3 Global 200 high; LISA’s “Rockstar” enters at No. 4, marking her third top 10; and Billie Eilish’s “Birds of a Feather” keeps at No. 5, after hitting No. 3.
