Tommy Richman’s “Million Dollar Baby” adds a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 and Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso” serves up a fourth week atop the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart.

Plus, NewJeans notch their fifth Global Excl. U.S. top 10 as “How Sweet” debuts at No. 7.

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.

‘Million Dollar Baby’ Tops Global 200 for Second Week

Tommy Richman’s breakthrough hit “Million Dollar Baby” spends a second week at No. 1 on the Global 200, with 95.5 million streams (down 12%) and 10,000 sold (up 20%) worldwide May 24-30.

Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso” rebounds to its No. 2 Global 200 high, from No. 5; Post Malone’s “I Had Some Help,” featuring Morgan Wallen, drops 2-3, two weeks after it debuted at No. 1; Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” slips 3-4, three weeks after it arrived in the top spot; and Billie Eilish’s “Lunch” descends to No. 5 a week after it started at No. 4.

Extra ‘Espresso’ on Global Excl. U.S.

Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso” pours on a fourth week at No. 1 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart, with 62.7 million streams (down 2%) and 3,000 sold (up 5%) outside the U.S. May 24-30.


Billie Eilish’s “Lunch” holds at No. 2 in its second week on Global Excl. U.S.; FloyyMenor and Cris Mj’s “Gata Only” returns to its No. 3 high, from No. 5; Tommy Richman’s “Million Dollar Baby” backtracks 3-4, after reaching No. 2; and Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” rises 6-5, following eight weeks at No. 1 beginning in February.

Plus, NewJeans’ “How Sweet” debuts at No. 7 on Global Excl. U.S. with 42.8 million streams and 5,000 sold outside the U.S. The song was released May 24 with fellow new track “Bubble Gum,” after the latter’s official video premiered April 26; “Bubble Gum” debuted at No. 166 on the May 11 chart and re-enters at a new No. 18 high, following its commercial release, with 25 million streams (up 735%) and 4,000 sold beyond the U.S.

The South Korean quintet collects its fifth Global Excl. U.S. top 10, as “How Sweet” follows its first four in 2023: “Super Shy” (No. 2 peak), “ETA,” “Ditto” (both No. 4) and “OMG” (No. 7).
