From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The World Digital Song Sales chart is a weekly record chart compiled by Nielsen SoundScan and published by Billboard magazine launched with the issue of January 23, 2010. As one of 21 specific genre song charts that Billboard launched in 2010, the chart ranks the 25 best-selling digital singles in the world music genre. The recording of Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Hawaiian singer-songwriter and musician Israel Kamakawiwoʻole has dominated the chart for most of its existence, with a total of 338 weeks at the top spot, and appearing in all the 576 weekly issues of the chart, as of the issue dated January 23, 2021, including a 116-week stretch at number one from the chart's inception until April 2012. Another notable chart-topper is Gangnam Style by Psy which stands in second place for weeks at number one, with a total of 50 weeks between 2012 and 2014, and third in total weeks on the chart, with 350. Over the years many K-pop artists appeared on the chart with some reaching the top position, most notably BTS, which has the record for most number one singles (25), followed by another K-pop group, Blackpink, which has 7 number one singles on the chart.
