Billboard is to 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.
