Anitta’s ‘Envolver’ Hits No. 1 on Billboard Global Excl. U.S. Chart
Plus, Paulo Londra, from Argentina, bounds to the top 10 of both tallies, as “Plan A” surges from No. 41 to No. Global Excl. U.S. and 89-9 on the Global 200.
The two 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, formerly MRC Data. The Billboard Global 200 is inclusive of worldwide data and the Billboard Global Excl. The U.S. chart includes data from territories other than the U.S .
Chart ranks were calculated using a weighted formula that includes official-only streams from both subscription and ad supported tiers of audio/video music services as well as download sales. The latter reflect purchases from full service digital music retailers around the globe, with D2C sites being excluded from the calculations.
‘Envolver’ No. U.S.
Anitta’s song “Envolver”, rises 2-1 on Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, becoming her first leader on the survey, with 54.4 million streams (up 23%) and 1,000 sold (up 63%) in territories outside the U.S. in the March 25-31 tracking week.
The reggaeton hit has surged to TikTok through a viral dance challenge where fans try to imitate Anitta’s moves. “This is incredible,” Anitta, born in Rio de Janeiro, marveled of the song’s reception during an Instagram Live with Billboard Latin. It’s something that has never been seen in Brazil .”
Glass Animals’ Heat Waves drop to No. 2 on the Global Excl. After three weeks at No. 1.
Paulo Londra’s “Plan A” rockets 41-3 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart, up 96% to 46.9 million streams outside the U.S. in the week ending March 31, the first full tracking frame following the song’s March 23 release. The single is the first entry on the chart for Londra, who is newly signed to Warner Music Latina.
“Plan A” concurrently soars 89-9 on the Global 200, with 48.6 million global streams (up 97%).
Rounding the Global Excl. U.S. top five: GAYLE’s abcdefu slips 3-4, and The Kid LAROI’s and Bieber’s “Stay” drops 4-5 after a record-breaking nine weeks at No. 1. (Olivia Rodrigo’s Drivers License was the first to be ranked at the top of the list for nine weeks. )
‘Heat Waves’ Holds Atop Global 200
Glass Animals’ Heat Waves adds a sixth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 chart. The British quartet’s first entry on the ranking drew 56.5 million streams (essentially even week-over-week) and sold 4,800 (down 4%) worldwide in the March 25-31 tracking week.
The song extends its mark for the longest Global 200 rule among groups.
Anitta’s “Envolver” jumps 5-2 on the Global 200; The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber’s “Stay” holds at No. 3, after an overall-record 11 weeks at No. 1; GAYLE’s abcdefu falls 2-4 after four weeks at No. 1; Elton John’s “abcdefu” falls 2-4, after four weeks at No. 2.
