Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” Earns Fourth Week at No. 1 on Billboard Global 200

Mariah Carey is still celebrating some Christmas magic…

The 51-year-old half-Venezuelan American singer’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” remains the biggest song in the world, as it spends a fourth frame at No. 1 on the latest Billboard Global 200.

Mariah Carey

The chart’s streaming and sales tracking period encompassed December 25-31, and even with six days of measurement after Christmas, Carey’s 1994 holiday hit rules the Billboard Global 200 despite a 55% drop to 58.3 million streams and a 60% slide to 11,000 sold worldwide in the tracking week.

Rounding out the Global 200’s top five, The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” rebounds from No. 17 to No. 4, returning to its best rank, and 24kGoldn‘s “Mood,” featuring Iann Dior, jumps 15-5, after reaching No. 2.

Plus, Karol G earns her first Global 200 top 10, as “Bichota” climbs 21-9, with 63.6 million streams (down 8%) and 1,000 sold (up 6%) worldwide.

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 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.

Bad Bunny Makes History on the Billboard 200 as “El Ultimo Tour del Mundo” Debuts at No. 1

Bad Bunny’s Ultimo Tour del Mundo is his first Billboard 200 chart-topper…

The 26-year-old Puerto Rican Latin trap and reggaeton singer has earned his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, while making history in the process.

Bad Bunny

His new studio effort El Ultimo Tour del Mundo debuts atop the list, marking the first all-Spanish-language album to reach No. 1 in the 64-year history of the all-genre chart.

The album starts with 116,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending December 3, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The previous highest-charting all-Spanish-language album came earlier this year, when Bad Bunny’s own YHLQMDLG debuted and peaked at No. 2 on the chart dated March 14 (179,000 units earned in its first week).

Of El Ultimo Tour del Mundo’s 116,000 equivalent album units earned in the tracking week ending December 3, SEA units comprise 103,000 (equating to 145.94 million on-demand streams of the album’s songs), album sales comprise 12,000 and TEA units comprise 1,000.

Only four all-Spanish-language albums have ever reached the top five on the Billboard 200: Bad Bunny’s El Ultimo Tour del Mundo (No. 1), YHLQMDLG (No. 2), Mana’s Amar es Combatir (No. 4; Sept. 9, 2006) and Shakira’s Fijación Oral: Vol. 1 (No. 4; June 25, 2005).

Before El Ultimo Tour del Mundo became the first all-Spanish-language album to reach No. 1 on the Billboard 200, there were only two mostly Spanish-sung albums reigned: Il Divo’s Ancora (February 11, 2006) and Selena’s Dreaming of You (August 5, 1995). Of Ancora’s 10 songs, seven were performed in Spanish. Dreaming of You’s 13-track album includes six tracks in Spanish, five in English and two duets that blend English and Spanish.

All told, Bad Bunny has now achieved five charting albums on the Billboard 200, with his last four all reaching the top 10. His first charting set, X 100PRE, peaked at No. 11 on the January 12, 2019-dated chart, and he followed it with Oasis (with J Balvin, No. 9; July 13, 2019), YHLQMDLG (No. 2; March 14, 2020), Las Que No Iban a Salir (No. 7; May 23, 2020) and now El Ultimo Tour del Mundo.

El Ultimo Tour del Mundo was led by the track “Dákiti,” a co-billed song with Jhay Cortez. It marked Bad Bunny’s third top 10 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 songs chart and his seventh No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart. The song also reached No. 1 on both the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album.
