Benson Boone’s ‘Beautiful Things’ Tops Both Billboard Global Charts

Mr. Nimbus | 02/20/2024

Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” is the biggest song in the world, as it notches a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 chart and ascends to the top of the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. survey.

Plus, Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) and Ty Dolla $ign’s “Carnival” debuts at No. 2 on the Global 200 and No. 10 on Global Excl. U.S., while Beyoncé’s “Texas Hold ‘Em” shuffles onto the Global 200 at No. 4.

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.

Boone No. 1 on Global 200; Ye, Ty Dolla $ign & Beyoncé New in Top 5

Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things,” released on Night Street/Warner Records, logs a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200, with 57.8 million streams (up 10%) and 12,000 sold (down 11%) worldwide Feb. 9-15.

As previously reported, the album, Ye’s first since his string of hate speech and antisemitic remarks, which resulted in companies including Adidas and Def Jam Recordings distancing themselves from the rapper, opens at No. 1 on the U.S.-based Billboard 200 chart. Ye adds his fourth Global 200 top 10 and Ty Dolla $ign, his first.

“Carnival” by the pair, billed collaboratively as ¥$: Kanye West & Ty Dolla $ign, concurrently starts at No. 10 on Global Excl. U.S. with 22.5 million streams and 2,000 sold outside the U.S. Ye and Ty Dolla $ign each reach the chart’s top 10 for the first time.

Taylor Swift’s “Cruel Summer” climbs 5-3 on the Global 200 after a week at No. 1 in November.

Plus, Xavi’s “La Diabla” rises 7-5 on the Global 200, after reaching No. 3.

In his two prior visits to the chart, the 21-year-old singer-songwriter from Monroe, Wash., hit No. 59 in 2022 with “In the Stars” and No. 98 in 2021 with “Ghost Town.”
