Drake’s “IDGAF,” featuring Yeat, debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 songs chart (dated Oct. 21). The collaboration, from Drake’s LP For All the Dogs, which concurrently opens at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, is Drake’s third Global 200 leader and Yeat’s first.

In all, Drake sends five songs into the latest Global 200’s top 10, all debuts from the new set.

Plus, Jennie’s “You & Me” starts at No. 7 on the Global 200, marking the first top 10 for the BLACKPINK member, with all four members of the group now having hit the tier as soloists.

The Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts, 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.

“IDGAF” begins with 65.5 million streams and 2,000 sold worldwide Oct. 6-12, following its Oct. 6 release. Canadian superstar Drake achieves his third Global 200 No. 1, following “Rich Flex,” with 21 Savage, in November 2022, and “What’s Next,” in March 2021, with all three songs have started at the summit. He ties Bad Bunny for the most Global 200 No. 1s among soloists; overall, only BTS boasts more, with seven.

Yeat tops the Global 200 for the first time, in his second visit to the list.

Drake claims five songs in the latest Global 200’s top 10. Here’s a rundown of the tracks (all of which are debuts):

No. 1, “IDGAF,” feat. Yeat

No. 2, “First Person Shooter,” feat. J. Cole

No. 4, “Virginia Beach,” Drake

No. 9, “Calling for You,” feat. 21 Savage

No. 10, “Gently,” feat. Bad Bunny

Drake has now logged a record 35 top 10s since the Global 200 began (more than twice as many as runner-up Taylor Swift, with 17). J. Cole adds his sixth top 10; 21 Savage, his 14th (and 11th with Drake); and Bad Bunny, his 16th.

Elsewhere in the Global 200’s top five, Doja Cat’s “Paint the Town Red” drops 2-3, following four weeks at No. 1 beginning in September, and Jung Kook and Jack Harlow’s “3D” drops to No. 5 a week after it debuted at No. 1.

Meanwhile, Jennie’s “You & Me” debuts at No. 7 on the Global 200, with 65.1 million streams worldwide. The song is the first top 10 (and chart entry) for the member of South Korea’s BLACKPINK, which has notched four top 10s as a group, including the No. 1s “Pink Venom” and “Shut Down” in 2022. All four members of BLACKPINK’s have now hit the top 10, totaling five top 10 hits (thus, surpassing BLACKPINK’s total): Lisa has logged two solo top 10s, “Lalisa” and “Money,” which hit Nos. 2 and 10, respectively, in 2021; Rosé has earned one top 10, and the first solo leader among the four members, as “On the Ground” began at No. 1 in March 2021; and Jisoo has also tallied one top 10, “Flower,” which reached No. 2 this April.

The Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts (dated Oct. 21, 2023) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Oct. 17). For both charts, the top 100 titles are available to all readers on Billboard.com, while the complete 200-title rankings are visible on Billboard Pro, Billboard’s subscription-based service. For all chart news, you can follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both X, formerly known as Twitter, and Instagram.

Luminate, the independent data provider to the Billboard charts, completes a thorough review of all data submissions used in compiling the weekly chart rankings. Luminate reviews and authenticates data. In partnership with Billboard, data deemed suspicious or unverifiable is removed, using established criteria, before final chart calculations are made and published.

Every Artist With 100 or More Billboard Hot 100 Chart Hits

Debuting a song on the Billboard Hot 100 is a highlight of any musician’s career. It’s Billboard’s premier songs chart, after all, and the stars often must align in order to stand with the best of the best. The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data, the lattermost metric reflecting purchases of physical singles and digital tracks from full-service digital music retailers; digital singles sales from direct-to-consumer (D2C) sites are excluded […]
