On 14 September (Monday), Billboard unveiled two new charts which rank top songs globally. These weekly charts are Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. They will be based on worldwide streams and download sales, which will give us a clear indication of which songs are the most popular on Earth now!

The first Billboard Global 200 is topped by “WAP” (Cardi B feat. Megan Thee Stallion). It is followed by “Dynamite” (BTS) at no. 2, “Mood” (24kGoldn) at no. 3, “Hawái” (Maluma) at no 4. And “Ice Cream” (BLACKPINK & Selena Gomez) at no. 5.

On the other hand, Billboard Global Excl. U.S. features the very same songs, but in a completely different order! The chart is topped by “Hawái” (Maluma), and then followed by “Dynamite” (BTS) at no. 2, “WAP” (Cardi B feat. Megan Thee Stallion) at no. 3, “Mood” (24kGoldn) at no. 4 and “Ice Cream” (BLACKPINK & Selena Gomez) at no. 6.

Both charts will be published every Tuesday. The list of top 100 songs will be available for free at Billboard.com, while the full list of 200 songs will be only visible for Billboard subscribers.
