Bad Bunny is back atop the global charts…
The 29-year-old Puerto Rican superstar’s Grupo Frontera-collaboration “Un x100to” rises to No. 1 on both the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts dated May 6.
It’s the second leader for Bad Bunny on each list and the first for Grupo Frontera.
The track is the second Global 200 No. 1 and first Global Excl. U.S. leader for the Regional Mexican genre — as it dethrones the first such No. 1 on the former chart: Eslabon Armado and Peso Pluma’s “Ella Baila Sola” jumped to the top of the Global 200 a week earlier.
Meanwhile, thanks to “Un x100to,” “Ella Baila Sola” and Yng Lvcas and Peso Pluma’s “La Bebe,” Regional Mexican (and Spanish-language) songs rank at Nos. 1, 2 and 3 simultaneously on both charts for the first time since the surveys began in September 2020.
Grupo Frontera and Bad Bunny’s “Un x100to” leaps from No. 5 to No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200, with 110.2 million streams (up 64%) and 4,000 sold (down 13%) worldwide April 21-27.
Bad Bunny adds his second, after “Dákiti,” with Jhay Cortez (now Jhayco), led for three weeks in November-December 2020.
It’s also the fifth all-Spanish-language leader on the list, after “Ella Baila Sola”; Karol G and Shakira’s “TQG,” which ruled for a week upon its debut in March; Bizarrap and Quevedo’s “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 52” (four weeks, 2022); and “Dakiti.”
“Ella Baila Sola” drops to No. 2 on the Global 100, although up 9% to 104.2 million streams and 5% to 3,000 sold worldwide.
Yng Lvcas and Peso Pluma’s “La Bebe” holds at its No. 3 Global 200 best.
Grupo Frontera and Bad Bunny’s “Un x100to” concurrently climbs 4-1 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, with 82.3 million streams (up 73%) and 1,000 sold (up 17%) outside the U.S. April 21-27.
Grupo Frontera earns its first Global Excl. U.S. No. 1, while Bad Bunny tallies his second, after “Dakiti” (five weeks, November-December 2020).
“Un x100to” becomes the Global Excl. U.S. chart’s first Regional Mexican No. 1.
It’s additionally the sixth all-Spanish-language leader on the ranking, after Karol G and Shakira’s “TQG,” which reigned for a week upon its debut in March; Bizarrap and Quevedo’s “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 52” (six weeks, 2022); Anitta’s “Envolver” (one, 2022); “Dakiti”; and Maluma and The Weeknd’s “Hawái” (one, 2020).
Peso Pluma ranks at Nos. 2 and 3 on Global Excl. U.S.: “Ella Baila Sola,” with Eslabon Armado, holds at its No. 2 high and “La Bebe,” with Yng Lvcas, keeps at No. 3, also after reaching No. 2.
As on the Global 200, thanks to “Un x100to,” “Ella Baila Sola” and “La Bebe,” Regional Mexican, and Spanish-language, songs rank at Nos. 1-3 simultaneously for the first time since the Global Excl. U.S. chart originated.
The Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts rank songs based on streaming and sales activity culled from more than 200 territories around the world, as compiled by Luminate. The Global 200 is inclusive of worldwide data and 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.
