Tate McRae achieves her first No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 chart, as “Greedy” ascends to the top of the tally (dated Nov. 25).

Meanwhile, Jung Kook’s “Standing Next to You” rules the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart for a second week, following its No. 1 launch a week earlier.


Plus, three songs debut in the Global 200’s top 10: Dua Lipa’s “Houdini,” at No. 3, Jack Harlow’s “Lovin on Me,” at No. 4, and Stray Kids’ “LALALALA,” at No. 10. On Global Excl. U.S., “Houdini” and “LALALALA” start at Nos. 5 and 6, respectively.

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.

McRae Scores First Global 200 No. 1

Tate McRae’s “Greedy” rises 3-1 on the Global 200, with 55.3 million streams and 3,000 sold worldwide Nov. 10-16.

The singer-songwriter from Calgary, Alberta (she drives a Zamboni in the song’s official video), who is now based in Los Angeles, achieves her first Global 200 leader; she posted a prior No. 16 best with her first entry, “You Broke Me First.,” in 2021. She’s the fifth Canadian – and first Canadian woman – to reign, following Drake (four No. 1s), Justin Bieber (two), Daniel Caesar and The Weeknd (one each).

“Greedy” is from McRae’s second LP, Think Later, due Dec. 8. Over the weekend, she performed for the first time on both NBC’s Saturday Night Live (Nov. 18) and the 2023 Billboard Music Awards (Nov. 19). She’s also the subject of her first Billboard cover story.

Jung Kook’s “Standing Next to You” dips to No. 2 on the Global 200, a week after it debuted as his third leader, and the third for a BTS member solo.

Dua Lipa’s “Houdini” debuts at No. 3 (abracadabra!) on the Global 200, with 51 million streams and 13,000 sold worldwide Nov. 10-16, following its release at 6 p.m. ET Nov. 9. She notches her fourth top 10 – and first top 10 debut – following “Dance the Night” (No. 3 peak, August), “Cold Heart (Pnau Remix),” with Elton John (No. 3, 2022), and “Levitating” (No. 2, 2021).

Jack Harlow’s “Lovin on Me” enters the Global 200 at No. 4, with 39.9 million streams and 16,000 sold worldwide, following its Nov. 10 arrival. He posts his fourth top 10, after “3D,” with Jung Kook (No. 1 debut and peak, for one week in October), “First Class” (No. 2 peak, 2022) and “Industry Baby,” with Lil Nas X (No. 2, 2021).
