Kali Uchis, SZA and more highlight global Latin hits: something new in the world


Perhaps less surprisingly, Kali Uchis’ “Fue Mejor” arrives at # 187 of the Global 200. The song comes in several versions, one with singer-songwriter PARTYNEXTDOOR and the other released on 29 September, with SZA. In both iterations, the song alternates between the English and Spanish sections, much like Kali Uchis’ other world hit in 2021, “Telepatía”, which reached No.10 on the Global 200 and the Global Excl. . American maps.

Kali Uchis and SZA are both American and PARTYNEXTDOOR is right up in Canada, making “Fue Mejor’s” outperformance in the United States quite logical. The song drew 76% of its worldwide sales (400 total) and 55% of its streams (8.7 million total) in the United States, well above the respective week’s averages of 54% and 24%. . But his Latin rhythms and Spanish lyrics still place him among Latin songs when it comes to debuting in the Global 200 without ranking in the Global Excl. American list.

On the other side of the world, South Korea is represented by bows for TWICE (“The Feels” at # 10 on Global Excl. US and # 12 on Global 200) and aespa (“Savage” at # 44 and 77). The first is the highest debut album on both charts and is the most streamed music video of the week, with 35.7 million clicks worldwide.

And slightly to the east, two Japanese artists make their debut on the Global Excl. Map of the United States, with back number “Yellow” at # 99 and B’z “Unite” at # 109.

(“Jaune” is one of two song titles to be doubled in the charts, while the song of the same name from Coldplay in 2000 sits at No. 130 in its 38th week on the survey. Elsewhere, “Loco” is at # 45 and 124, by Itzy and Justin Quiles, Chimbalana and Zion & Lennox, respectively. Kid LAROI and Eminem get closer with “Sans You” And without Me“at numbers 100 and 167, respectively.)

Finally, three European acts join for a n ° 192 Global Excl. Debut in the United States, as Gabry Ponte, Prezioso (both from Italy) and LUM! X (Austria) enter with “Thunder”. This is the first appearance of each artist in the ranking, although Ponte is no stranger to Billboard‘s graphics. As part of Eiffel 65, he reached 6th place on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 2000 with the pop / dance classic “Blue (Da Ba Dee)”.
