to score top 10 Hot 100 hits in the 2000s, '10s and '20s, isn't surprising either. It's his fourth entry on the Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. chart paired with an international producer on an existing song, giving each the extra push needed to further succeed.

First, it was Jawsh 685. The New Zealand singer and producer posted"Laxed (Siren Beat)," an instrumental inspired by his Samoan and Cook Island lineage, to YouTube in 2019 and then properly released it via Columbia Records in April 2020 as streams snowballed. Derulo dropped his own take, later formally released in June as"Savage Love – Laxed (Siren Beat)."

While the song peaked at No. 3 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart, it has, on average, ranked five spots higher on the latter chart across its 45 weeks on each survey. headtopics.com

Then, it was Puri, Jhorrmountain and Adje. The Dutch producers and rappers had gone through three iterations of"Coño," dating back to 2017. When Derulo's version was released in July 2020, the song was further propelled, eventually hitting the Global Excl. U.S. chart at No. 177 in September.

Next: Nuka. The New Caledonian producer released"4 Brylean (Wayz2Rmx2018)," a pop-dancehall hybrid that built listenership between its 2018 premiere and its 2020 redo as"Love Not War (The Tampa Beat)" featuring, who else, Derulo. The song ascended to No. 90 across 15 weeks on the Global 200 and, like"Coño," attained greater success outside the U.S., reaching No. 49 and lasting 25 weeks on the Global Excl. U.S. chart.

That brings us to this week's charts, as"Jalebi Baby" ranks 68 spots higher on the Global Excl. U.S. chart than the Global 200.Amid the chart runs of these international discoveries, Derulo has also found success with"Take You Dancing" and"Lifestyle," the latter featuring Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine. But even"Take You Dancing," a song more in line with his solo catalog that drew U.S. radio support, built on his collaborative international momentum and performed better on the Global Excl. U.S. chart, going higher (No. 24) and lasting longer (36 weeks) than on the Global 200 (No. 32; 31 weeks). (Both songs hit the U.S.-based Hot 100 and Radio Songs surveys, unlike"Coño" and"Love Not War.")

More than a decade into his career, Derulo has reinvented himself yet again, balancing a string of worldwide hits with his tried-and-true brand of American-friendly pop, as well as a profile boost with newer and longtime fans alike. With"Jalebi Baby" rising in streams and sales, he has scored another international success, again bringing a fresh face, this time in Tesher, and sound, onto the Global charts. headtopics.com
