Selena Gomez streaming review – the method

Streaming is made up of audio and video streams. Our CSPC methodology now includes both to better reflect the real popularity of each track. The main source of data for each avenue is respectively Spotify and YouTube.

To factor in the growing impact of multiple Asian countries where these platforms aren’t always the go-to site for music streaming, more sources have been added.

In order to account for their real popularity in each relevant country, the below sources have been used along with the mentioned ratios that reflect the market share of each area.

Audio Streams
– South Korea : Genie streams * 3.05 (consistent with Gaon streaming numbers)
– Japan : AWA streams * 100/5.5 (AWA has 5.5% of the Japanese streaming market)
– Elsewhere : Spotify streams * (370 – 8.5 – 9.5 – 33 – 9) / 207 (370 million global subscribers minus 8.5 million from South Korea minus 9.5 million from Japan minus 33 million from China divided by the number of Spotify only users minus 9 million more Asian users) + Genie streams * 3.05 (uses Genie rather than Spotify to extrapolate markets like Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam)

Video Streams
– China* : QQ video streams * 50 if the song is available for audio stream, QQ video streams * 5 elseway (scale built based on known figures for several major artists)
– Elsewhere : Youtube views

*since 96.4% of Chinese streaming platforms are free users, that paid-for users pay less than $2 a month and that they are also used as video streaming platforms, their streams are weighted on par with YouTube streams.

Audio Stream value – 1500 plays equal 1 album unit
Video Stream value – 11,750 views equal 1 album unit

Equivalent Albums Sales (EAS) = ( Spotify * 310/207 + Genie * 3.05*2 + AWA * 100/5.5 ) / 1500 + ( QQ views* 50(or 5) + YouTube ) / 11750

Hi MJD! Great work! So, can you tell me how can I found her singles SPS in this article?


So Ariana is bigger on streaming too! Wbk


Not by a lot so i wouldnt brag about it. Also, she doesn’t have a song bigger than IAM or WDTA


AHAHA. So the two songs that are bigger than Ariana’s on streaming are songs that Selena is featured on. That says it all. Also, 3M is a big gap in streaming, that’s nearly 1-2 album(s), and it’s even worse when you consider how many more songs Selena has released. So my point still stands, Ariana is much bigger.


Well, there isnt a comparation, selenas 3 albums were before 2013, streaming wasnt big, all Ariana’s albums were after 2013


I promise I really hate Ariana fans. Y’all so freaking rude. Maybe Ariana’s songs has more views but that doesn’t make her better. Why can’t you just appreciate both of them instead of comparing them.


She does. Problem and bang bang are both bigger than WDTA and IAM overall they just weren’t released in the streaming era. And LMAO at least Ariana can still sell pure and the same time outstream and outview selena.


Why is it necessary to bring up Arianna? Ok so Arianna is bigger than Selena. But hey, Arianna Grande is not even close to Rihanna, Swift results. Maybe we could brag about how lowly she is ranked compared to the other girls too.


Actually Ariana is bigger in streams than Katy Perry, Camila Cabello, Sia, Dua, almost bigger than Nicki (who has like 3x more songs than Ariana, and many other big artists….


Arinators are rude and immature respect other artists please


araian featuring artist has so many ft song but still can not cross 1B stream. Shame

Patrik Barta

Ariana has 6 albums from 2013 while Selena has 3. Ariana has more songs than Selena yet she still struggles to have songs over 1 billion streams. Funny thing that Selena can get close to Ariana with ease, without promotion, with lupus and less singles and features. Says a lot you know.
