Myke Towers is LaLa-loving life right now…
The 29-year-old Puerto Rican rapper’s latest single “LaLa” surges from No. 13 to No. 1 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart dated July 22, becoming his first leader on the list.
The profile of the reggaetón-powered Spanish-language song has recently swelled on TikTok, after the track was released in March.
The single becomes Towers’ first Global Excl. U.S. No. 1, following three top 10s: “Pareja Del Año,” with Sebastián Yatra (No. 9 peak, May 2021); “Bandido,” with Juhn (No. 6, February 2021); and “Caramelo,” with Ozuna and Karol G (No. 10, September 2020).
The Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts, which started in September 2020, ranks songs based on streaming and sales activity culled from more than 200 territories around the world, as compiled by Luminate. The Global Excl. U.S. chart comprises data from territories excluding the United States.
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.
