As a fairly new single steps up to first place in just its second stay on the Billboard Global 200, two just-released tunes debut inside the top 10, bringing both acts behind the songs to the uppermost region once again.
The Billboard Global 200 is, at its most basic, a ranking of the 200 most-consumed songs in the world every week. The charting company utilizes a formula that combines sales and streaming activity from a plethora of platforms and websites in 200 countries around the globe to create the best-possible list of the tunes billions of people can’t get enough of.
Lil Nas X hits No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 for the first time with “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” his viral sensation. The track continues to benefit from its music video, which has been a hot topic in the music industry for weeks now. The notable tune swaps spots with Justin Bieber, Daniel Caesar and Giveon’s “Peaches,” which ruled last frame.
The next two singles also trade places, with Silk Sonic (otherwise known as Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak) pushing “Leave The Door Open” to No. 3 while Masked Wolf’s “Astronaut in the Ocean” dips to fourth place.
