Billie Eilish scored her first no. 1 single and won two Grammys for her hit single “Bad Guy” and she’s not done winning awards with this song just yet. The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry just named this catchy track as the biggest global single of 2019.

IFPI CEO Frances Moore described the young singer as someone who has “taken the world by storm with her incredible voice and genre-defying sound,” and praised her for addressing important issues in her lyrics.

IFPI’s “Global Top Digital Single” chart has been around since 2014, and it takes several important factors into consideration, including consumption across audio streaming, video streaming, and permanent downloads.

Eilish came first with a total of 19.5 million global converted track equivalents for “Bad Guy”, and she was in a pretty good company on the chart. Lil Nas X took the no. 2 spot with his breakout hit “Old Town Road”, while Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello came in third with their collaboration “Señorita”.
