Last month, Billboard launched the Billboard Global 200 chart and the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, two charts that rank the most popular tracks globally. Both charts are based on sales and streaming data from more than 200 territories, and the rankings are determined by a weighted formula that combines official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of leading digital platforms with downloads from major online music retailers around the world.

The charts dated October 17 reflect data from the week of October 2 to October 8.
