Miley CyrusMiley Cyrus Rules Billboard Global Charts for 10th Week, Jimin Heads Up Three New Top 10s

"Flowers" tops the Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. for a 10th week each, while Jimin's "Like Crazy" enters each tally at No. 2.

Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers” remains the biggest song in the world, as it scores a milestone 10th week at No. 1 on both the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts (dated April 8).

Plus, three songs make their first appearances in the tallies’ top 10: Jimin’s “Like Crazy” launches at No. 2 on both lists – marking the highest-charting hit for a BTS member solo on the Global 200 and tying for the best rank among the group’s members on Global Excl. U.S.; Yng Lvcas and Peso Pluma’s “La Bebe” leaps 20-6 on Global Excl. U.S. and 21-7 on the Global 200; and Rosalía and Rauw Alejandro’s “Beso” bounds in at Nos. 7 and 10, respectively.

The Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. surveys, which began in September 2020, 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.

Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers” claims a 10th week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200, with 87.7 million streams (down 11%) and 22,000 sold (down 13%) worldwide in the March 24-30 tracking week.

“Flowers” is the fourth song since the Global 200 began to reign for double-digit weeks, joining Harry Styles’ “As It Was” (15 weeks, 2022), Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” (13 weeks, 2020-23) and The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber’s “Stay” (11 weeks, 2021).

Jimin achieves the highest-charting Global 200 top 10 for a BTS member as a soloist, and becomes the second member of the superstar South Korean septet – joining Jung Kook – with as many as two solo top 10s; Jimin is the first to do so with both as a lead artist. A week earlier, he notched his first top 10 with “Set Me Free, Pt. 2,” also from FACE. Plus, BTS’ Jin and SUGA have hit the top 10 solo with one song apiece.

Here’s a recap of BTS members’ Global 200 top 10s apart from the group (with BTS having logged 10 top 10s on the chart):

• “Like Crazy,” Jimin, No. 2 (to date), April 2023

• “Set Me Free, Pt. 2,” Jimin, No. 8, April 2023

• “Dreamers (Music From the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022),” Jung Kook, No. 9, December 2022

• “The Astronaut,” Jin, No. 10, November 2022

• “Left and Right,” Charlie Puth feat. Jung Kook, No. 5, July 2022

• “That That,” PSY feat. SUGA, No. 5, May 2022

Rounding out the Global 200’s top five, The Weeknd and Ariana Grande’s “Die for You” holds at No. 3, after reaching No. 2; Karol G and Shakira’s “TQG” falls 2-4, four weeks after it premiered on top; and SZA’s “Kill Bill” dips 4-5, following two weeks at No. 1 in January.

Yng Lvcas and Peso Pluma’s “La Bebe” bounds 21-7 on the Global 200 with 61 million streams (up 90%) and 1,000 sold (up 66%) worldwide March 24-30. The song was released by Yng Lvcas independently in December 2021; its remix with Peso Pluma arrived March 17 on Warner Latina. (All versions of the song are combined into a singular listing on Billboard’s charts.) Both artists, from Mexico, rank in the top 10 for the first time.

Jimin Is Spreading the ‘Love’ After His First Solo Hot 100 No. 1

The BTS singer became the first solo South Korean artist to top the Hot 100 thanks to "Like Crazy."

Jimin made history on Monday (April 3) when his new single “Like Crazy” scored the BTS singer his very first solo No. 1 on the Hot 100, marking the first solo South Korean artist to reach the summit.

The superstar took to Instagram following the news to thank his fans, sharing a screenshot of the latest Hot 100 top 10. “Love u all,” he captioned the post with purple heart emojis.

The Hot 100 start for “Like Crazy” was largely driven by sales, with five versions available during the chart’s tracking week. The song was released March 24 on Jimin’s debut solo set FACE, which enters at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The six-track project was preceded by the pre-release single “Set Me Free, Pt. 2.” With production by Pdogg, Ghstloop, Supreme Boi, BLVSH and Evan, the project also features songwriting credits on three tracks from bandmate RM.

Jimin and the rest of BTS previously became the first all-South Korean group to lead the Hot 100, with “Dynamite” in 2020.

In an interview with Consequence previewing FACE, Jimin admitted each of his bandmates have been anxious over going solo as they focused on individual projects, but “their results were absolutely great.” (Recent solo efforts have included J-Hope’s old-school hip-hop-leaning Jack in the Box, RM’s eclectic, collab-packed Indigo and Jin’s single “The Astronaut,” which was co-written by Coldplay and released before he started his mandatory enlistment in the Korean military.)
