Cardi B‘s global domination continues…
The 27-year-old half-Dominican American rap superstar’s “WAP,” featuring Megan Thee Stallion, leads the Billboard Global 200 tally for a second week.
“WAP” dominates with 93.2 million global streams (down from 100.9 million a week earlier) and 17,000 global downloads sold (down from 23,000) in the week ending September 17.
The chart, which premiered a week ago, ranks songs based on streaming and sales activity culled from more than 200 territories around the world, as compiled by Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
Chart rankings 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.
BTS‘ “Dynamite” repeats at No. 2 on the Global 200 with 79.1 million streams (down from 83.4 million) and 29,000 sold (down from 36,000).
For a second straight frame, “WAP” was the most-streamed song of the week globally and “Dynamite” was the top-selling title.
