Another Japanese act debuting its second song onto the Global Excl. U.S. chart is One OK Rock, with “Broken Heart of Gold” at No. 66 (and No. 173 on Global 200). The foursome released two versions of the song, one in English and one in Japanese. The same bilingual approach propelled “Renegades” to No. 18 last month.
Two South Korean boy bands make splashes, nearly back to back. Stray Kids arrive at No. 109 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart with “Wolfgang,” just above Tomorrow X Together’s No. 113 debut for “0X1=Lovesong (I Know I Love You),” featuring Seori.
Elsewhere, three European acts hit the Global Excl. U.S. chart. Mozznik (Kosovo/Albania) and Loredana (Switzerland) start at No. 146 with the German-language “Rosenkrieg”; Måneskin (Italy) debuts at No. 157 with “Coraline”; and Aya Nakamura (France/Mali) makes her fourth visit with “Bobo” at No. 186.
“Coraline” is one of three songs by Måneskin on this week’s ranking, the most that an Italian act has simultaneously charted. Its 2021 Eurovision Song Contest-winning “Zitti E Buoni” is the first Italian-language song to grace the top 10, as it lifts 11-10, up 6% to 31.5 million streams outside the U.S., according to MRC Data. Plus, “I Wanna Be Your Slave” soars 73-21, up 114% to 23.4 million streams.
