      bad guy by Billie Eilish Named Biggest Global Single of 2019

      IFPI, the organisation that represents the recorded music industry worldwide, has named bad guy by Billie Eilish as the biggest global single of 2019.

      bad guy is the fifth single from Eilish’s first album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? and was released alongside it on 29th March 2019. The song was an instant hit, topping the charts in more than 15 countries around the world, including the US, Australia, Canada and Mexico. bad guy became Spotify’s second-most streamed song globally last year and, according to Shazam, was the most searched-for track of 2019.

      bad guy won Record of the Year and Song of the Year at the 62nd Grammy Awards in January 2020, making Eilish the youngest-ever artist to win the latter category.

      Frances Moore, chief executive of IFPI, said: “Billie Eilish has taken the world by storm with her incredible voice and genre-defying sound. She is also an artist who addresses important issues like mental health in her lyrics that clearly resonate with her fans all over the world. We wish her success for what will no doubt be another standout year.”

      Old Town Road by Lil Nas X was the second-biggest global single of last year. The TikTok viral sensation dominated charts for much of 2019. The track, unique in its fusion of country and rap, broke the record for longest consecutive run in the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

      Señorita, the duet by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello (who had the global number one single in 2018 with Havana ft. Young Thug), takes third place in the chart. The collaboration is the second for the artists and reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, as well as in thirty-five other countries including the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada. It was also the most-streamed song globally on Spotify in 2019.

      The IFPI Global Digital Single of 2019 is the second of the annual awards announced this year from IFPI’s global charts, following the announcement that Taylor Swift was named the Global Recording Artist of the Year 2019.

      The IFPI Global Digital Singles Chart is the only ranking to accurately measure consumption across audio streaming, video streaming and permanent downloads on a global basis. It is weighted based on the relative value of each method of consumption.

      Top 10 Global Digital Singles 2019
      1 Billie Eilish bad guy 19.5
      2 Lil Nas X Old Town Road 18.4

            ARASHI Awarded Global Album of 2019 for Their 20th Anniversary Compilation 5x20 All the BEST!! 1999-2019

            IFPI, the organisation that represents the recorded music industry worldwide, has announced that Japanese band ARASHI had the biggest global album of 2019, with their compilation 5x20 All the BEST!! 1999-2019.

            ARASHI – Satoshi Ohno, Sho Sakurai, Masaki Aiba, Kazunari Ninomiya, and Jun Matsumoto – formed in 1999 and released their first single A-RA-SHI in November that year. They went on to release multiple million-seller albums over the next two decades. In June 2019, they released their 20th anniversary compilation 5x20 All the BEST!! 1999-2019 and staged the ARASHI Anniversary Tour 5x20 across Japan last year. The band, who are national icons in Japan, announced in January 2019 that they would be going on hiatus from 2021.

            Frances Moore, chief executive of IFPI, said: “ARASHI are an iconic Japanese band that have built a huge and very dedicated fanbase across Asia throughout their twenty-year music career. We would like to congratulate the artists on winning this award which is testament to their incredibly strong catalogue and career longevity.”

            Taylor Swift’s seventh studio album Lover was the second biggest global album of 2019. Released in August 2019, it debuted at number one in Australia, Canada, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, the UK, and the US amongst others, and reached three million album-equivalent units worldwide by the end of its first week of release.

            MAP OF THE SOUL : PERSONA, the sixth EP from South Korean band BTS, takes third place in the 2019 chart. Not only is it the best-selling album ever in South Korea, but it also reached number one in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, UK and the US, marking the first time a Korean act has topped the charts in each of those countries.

            The IFPI Global Top Ten Album Chart combines global sales of physical and digital album downloads to rank the top albums of the year. The chart includes physical and digital album unit sales only.

                  This one on the thread about halfway down by Oldbloke - I think I have read it wrong as I guess this refers to ALL and not just Abbey Road. Just a coincidence that the numbers are virtually identical.

                    That list you’re posting is an album artists list.
                    The Beatles sold 881k album pure sales in US in 2019... for ALL their albums, not only Abbey Road.

                      Thanks - it was seeing the 0.8m in both that initially confused me. Yeah did not spot this thread when I created mine, so no probs in you closing it.
