Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Hiss’ Slithers Onto Billboard Global 200 at No. 1

Mr. Nimbus | 02/05/2024

Megan Thee Stallion’s “Hiss” debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 chart. With the launch, she becomes the first female rapper in a lead role to start atop the tally.

Meanwhile, Tate McRae’s “Greedy” rebounds for a fourth week atop the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. survey.

Elsewhere, Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” hits the Global 200’s top 10, jumping from No. 13 to No. 6, while three songs enter the Global Excl. U.S. top 10: Creepy Nuts’ “Bling-Bang-Bang-Born” (16-7), Teddy Swims’ “Lose Control” (15-9) and Noah Kahan’s “Stick Season” (12-10).

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.

‘Hiss’ Hits Global 200 at No. 1

Megan Thee Stallion’s “Hiss” opens atop the Billboard Global 200 with 39.6 million streams and 99,000 sold worldwide Jan. 26-Feb. 1. (In addition to the original version’s clean and explicit options released Jan. 26, an instrumental version and clean and explicit “chopped ‘n screwed” versions arrived Jan. 31.)

As the song soars in atop the Global 200, Megan Thee Stallion becomes the first female rapper in a lead role to debut atop the chart. She adds her second No. 1, after Cardi B’s “WAP,” on which she’s featured, led for three weeks in September-October 2020. (Among female rappers, Latto has also entered the ranking at No. 1, as featured on Jung Kook’s “Seven,” in July 2023; the song went on to reign for, fittingly, seven weeks.)

Jack Harlow’s “Lovin in Me” holds at No. 2 on the Global 200, after two weeks at No. 1 in January; Tate McRae’s “Greedy” keeps at No. 3, after two weeks at No. 1 beginning in November; Xavi’s “La Diabla” repeats at No. 4, after reaching No. 3; and Ariana Grande’s “Yes, And?” falls to No. 5 after spending its first two weeks on the chart at No. 1.

Plus, Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” surges 13-6 in its second week on the Global 200, becoming his first top 10 hit. The song by the 21-year-old from Monroe, Wash., drew 40.4 million streams (up 31%) and sold 10,000 worldwide (up 20%) in the tracking week.

‘Greedy’ for More: McRae Back Atop Global Excl. U.S.

Tate McRae’s “Greedy” rules the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart for a fourth week, returning to the top from No. 2, with 39.6 million streams (down 3%) and 1,000 sold (down 4%) outside the U.S. Jan. 26-Feb. 1. The track became McRae’s first No. 1 on the chart in early December.

Ariana Grande’s “Yes, And?” drops to No. 2 after logging its first two weeks on Global Excl. U.S. at No. 1; Xavi’s “La Diabla” holds at No. 3, after reaching No. 2; Feid and ATL Jacob’s “Luna” is steady at its No. 4 high; and The Weeknd, Jennie and Lily Rose Depp’s “One of the Girls,” which hit the top 10 three weeks earlier, reaches the top five (7-5; 38.6 million streams outside the U.S., up 2%).
