    Billboard Launches New Global Charts


    For the first time, Billboard and MRC unveil two authoritative charts ranking the top songs globally.

    The new weekly charts, the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S., are based on worldwide streams and download sales and will give an accurate glimpse into the most popular songs on the planet.

    Launching today, the Billboard Global 200 is inclusive of worldwide songs while Billboard Global Excl. U.S. focuses on all territories outside the United States. Both collate sales and streaming data from more than 200 territories, with rankings based on a weighted formula incorporating official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of leading digital platforms, and downloads from key online music retailers.

    Leading the inaugural Billboard Global 200 is "WAP" By Cardi B Featuring Megan Thee Stallion, while the first Billboard Global Excl. U.S. is ruled by Maluma’s "Hawi."

    "As the steward of the definitive industry charts," comments MRC Data and MRC Media & Info president Deanna Brown, "we're thrilled to unveil out our global charts which give the industry insights into the most powerful artists worldwide, what songs have an international impact, as well as what songs may start trending outside of the United States."

    The first charts are compiled with data from the tracking dates of Sept. 4 through Sept. 10.

    "Billboard and MRC Data are proud to present charts that are reflective of a world view and we are committed to the continued expansion of territories and digital service providers contributing to the global charts to further expand that reach,” comments Silvio Pietroluongo, Billboard senior vp, Charts & Data Development.

    Billboard and MRC Data have been discussing the idea of global charts with the industry and data providers for more than two years. One of the goals for the project was to expose people to music from multiple territories. In time, it is hoped that the power of the Billboard and MRC Data brands will bring overdue exposure and recognition for acts from international markets.

    The full charts will be made available on Billboard.com on Tuesday (Sept. 15), and be published every Tuesday going forward. For both charts, the top 100 songs are featured on Billboard.com, while the complete 200-title rankings are visible on Billboard Pro, Billboard’s subscription-based service.

          Look at "Dynamite", only 36k sales. According to ToTC this is just sales from 3rd party stores, not D2C. Including D2C, Dynamite should have at least 100k sales in the USA alone this week.

          I don't want to say that download sales aren't , But I did want to remark that he sales reported for this chart are not complete.

            To be honest, those D2C BTS sales week after week from their website are nothing but fishy...
            And I guess they don't have the time or ways to track every artist own sales, just those reported by the "big" stores (iTunes, Amazon, Google Play).

            Despite a few copies missing here and there from D2C, I guess this is a very realiable chart after all, and sales, as it can be seen with those numbers, are so little that they play a small part on a worldwide chart.

              How Billboard Formulated the New Global Charts

              The Billboard and MRC Data chart team discuss the two ground-breaking rankings of global songs.

              In creating these charts did Billboard/MRC Data have to adjust its methodology to account for the different realities of data collection or other factors in different parts of the world?

              Both charts incorporate official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of leading audio and video music services. We collaborated with the industry to create a unique, revenue-reflective methodology taking the global market into account. The Billboard Global 200, which includes U.S. data, has a slightly different methodology than Billboard Global Excluding U.S. because of the revenue influences represented in each ranking.
              https://www.billboard.com/articles/b...source=twitter
              For the Billboard Global 200:
              One Track Sale = 200 Premium Streams = 900 Ad-Supported
              *The Ad-Supported to Premium stream ratio is 4.5 to 1

              The ranking will be presented based on stream equivalent units using the following formula:
              (Tracks * 200) + Premium Streams + (Ad-Supported Streams / 4.5)

              For Billboard Global Excluding U.S.:
              1 Track Sale = 250 Premium Streams = 1125 Ad-Supported
              *The Ad-Supported to Premium stream ratio is also 4.5 to 1

              The ranking will be presented based on stream equivalent units using the following formula:
              (Tracks * 250) + Premium Streams + (Ad-Supported Streams / 4.5)

              How many total data points is Billboard/MRC collecting to compile these charts?

              The Chart rankings are based on a weighted formula incorporating official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of leading audio and video music services, plus download sales from top music retailers across the globe.
