Spotify Most Streamed Artists Ever

Most streamed artists on Spotify – Methodology

This ranking presents the top Spotify artists based on streams from tracks available inside their personal page’s sections Albums, Singles and Compilations. They are combined together and defined as “Lead streams”.

The number of tracks available and over several milestones are based on lead songs only.

Streams achieved thanks to songs listed below the Appears on section on Spotify do not impact the overall ranking and these milestones statistics, they are still shown inside the column “Featured streams”.

While the highest part of the list is comprehensive, as we go down artists may be missing.

If you notice an omission, just use our streaming search tool to look for the related artist and if he scored enough streams he will automatically and instantly appear in this top.

In fact, numbers are continuously updated as you search for them. As soon as new daily data is in for an artist, this will be reflected in the overall ranking.

As the Spotify database is tricky, we can’t guarantee you there won’t be occasional data glitches, even if we developed several controls to grant data consistency. If an issue appears in spite of these controls, manual fixes will be performed.

Hi, could you update more artists on chart please.

Aerosmith showing 3.7B but at 3.9
Kiss showing 1.8B but at 2
ZZ Top showing 1.4B but at 1.5

les

Could Goo Goo Dolls be updated please. Search today shows them having over 1.7 billion streams.

baraka92

What the heck happened to Elvis Presley! If you check there are now two profiles on Spotify under his name.

Tristan Cole

Switch to “All” from “100.” It shows the top 1000!

les

Could A-HA be included on list. I think they are the only artist with a song over 1 billion streams not included.

Kaiden

NLE Choppa should be up there with 3 billion streams

Asa

3 billion is less than Olivia’s 7 billion lol. So he wouldn’t logically be on the chart

jt1916

Actually the full chart inludes 1000 artists.
