Notes

  • It should be noted that the UWC only has charts available from 1957-1958, 1966-1968, 1976-1978, 1986-1988, and 1996-present. [4][5][6][7][8]
  • The United World Chart notably excludes South Korea from its lists, even though Korean artists have been very influential in Asia and around the world. This is mainly because South Korea compiles official monthly charts instead of weekly charts as practiced in other territories.
