Bad Bunny’s ‘Monaco’ Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard Global Charts


share close

Bad Bunny’s “Monaco” blasts in at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. songs charts (dated Oct. 28). The Puerto Rican-born superstar earns his fourth leader on the Global 200 and his third on Global Excl. U.S. The song is from his new LP, Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana, which debuts as his third No. 1 on the U.S.-based Billboard 200 albums chart.

Bad Bunny debuts two other songs from the set in both the Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. top 10: “Perro Negro,” with Feid, and “Fina,” with Young Miko.


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.

‘Monaco’ No. 1 Worldwide

“Monaco” begins atop the Billboard Global 200 with 82.3 million streams and 2,000 sold worldwide in its first week (Oct. 13-19). Bad Bunny notches his fourth No. 1, and second No. 1 debut, on the chart, following “Where She Goes,” which led for a week upon its start in June. He previously reigned with “Un x100to,” with Grupo Frontera, for two weeks in May and “Dakiti,” with Jhay Cortez (now Jhayco), for three weeks in November-December 2020.

Bad Bunny breaks out of a tie with Drake and Olivia Rodrigo for the most Global 200 No. 1s among soloists; overall, only BTS, with seven, has more.

Bad Bunny debuts two other songs from his new set in the Global 200’s top 10: “Perro Negro,” with Feid, and “Fina,” with Young Miko. They open at Nos. 4 and 6 with 56.8 million streams and 51.7 million streams worldwide, respectively. Bad Bunny ups his count to 19 top 10s, passing Taylor Swift (17) for the second-most, after Drake’s 35. Feid, from Colombia, and Young Miko, from Puerto Rico, each reach the top 10 for the first time.


Swift’s “Cruel Summer” surges 14-2 on the Global 200, surpassing its prior No. 3 best, with 52.4 million streams (up 22%) and 47,000 sold (up 982%) worldwide, following the Oct. 18 release of a live version, from her The Eras Tour, and an LP Giobbi remix.

Elsewhere in the Global 200’s top five, Doja Cat’s “Paint the Town Red” holds at No. 3, following four weeks at No. 1 beginning in September, and Tate McRae’s “Greedy” rises 6-5, after reaching No. 4.

Bad Bunny Also No. 1 on Global Excl. U.S.

Bad Bunny’s “Monaco” likewise launches atop Billboard Global Excl. U.S. with 57 million streams and 1,000 sold outside the U.S. Oct. 13-19. He notches his third No. 1, and second No. 1 debut, on the chart, after “Un x100to,” with Grupo Frontera, rose to the top for three weeks in May and “Dakiti,” with Jhay Cortez, began at No. 1 and ruled for five weeks in November-December 2020.

Bad Bunny solely claims the most Global Excl. U.S. No. 1s among soloists and ties BLACKPINK for the second-most among all acts; BTS leads all artists with seven No. 1s.

Bad Bunny debuts two other tracks in the Global Excl. U.S. top 10: “Perro Negro,” with Feid (No. 7), and “Fina,” with Young Miko (No. 10). Bad Bunny now boasts a record 18 top 10s (ahead of runner-up Swift’s 11). Feid adds his second top 10 and Young Miko scores her first.

Jung Kook’s “Seven,” featuring Latto, rebounds 3-2 on Global Excl. U.S., following nine weeks at No. 1 beginning in July; Doja Cat’s “Paint the Town Red” rises 4-3, after two weeks on top starting in September; and Iñigo Quintero’s first entry, “Si No Estás,” pushes 6-4, while concurrently becoming the Spanish singer-songwriter’s first top 10 on the Global 200 (17-10; 51.4 million global streams, up 3%).

Plus, Jung Kook and Jack Harlow’s “3D” falls 2-5 on Global Excl. U.S., two weeks after it debuted at No. 1.

The Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts (dated Oct. 28, 2023) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Oct. 24). 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.
