(BILLBOARD) – Adele‘s “Easy on Me” is the biggest song in the world, as it rebounds for a fifth week at No. 1 on both the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts (dated Dec. 4).
The ballad is from the British superstar’s new album 30, which concurrently launches at No. 1 on the U.S.-based Billboard 200 with the biggest week for an album in 2021.
Plus, the set’s “Oh My God” debuts at Nos. 3 and 7, respectively, on the Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. charts, while fellow 30 cut “I Drink Wine” enters the former at No. 10.
Billboard‘s two global charts, which began in September 2020 and recently marked their first year, rank songs based on streaming and sales activity culled from more than 200 territories around the world, as compiled by MRC Data. The Billboard Global 200 is inclusive of worldwide data and the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart comprises data from territories excluding the U.S.
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.
