How to get Spotify numbers in one click

Spotify streaming numbers tool

Hi everyone! You have been looking for a tool which gives you Spotify streams of your favorite artists in one click for a very long time. The wait is over.

We developed it for you. No more words are needed, just try it and enjoy!

Please note that the link has been added to the menu’s “Useful Links” section.

If you have some questions still, make sure to read the FAQ at the top of the page! We also put it here so that you can’t miss it.

1) Is it possible to fetch any artist?

Yes. We are directly hitting Spotify’s API. All artists available in their database can be fetched, including artists who are currently unavailable for streaming.

2) I typed in the name but no result is found, why?

Since many artists use similar names or even special characters, the query by name can miss the artist you are looking for. In this case, we suggest to use the search by ID that works for every artist.

3) Where can I find the ID of an artist?

From Google you can search an artist name plus “Spotify”. The first result will always be the artist page on Spotify. There, all 22 characters after “artist/” inside the URL reflects the artist id.
Here the example of Adele, with her id being 4dpARuHxo51G3z768sgnrY.

4) Are data updated?

Yes, all streaming data are up to date. As they are retrieved from Spotify’s database itself, they are automatically refreshed every day.

5) I selected albums, singles and compilations but some are missing, why?

Spotify API limits queries to 50 results. Artists with heavy discographies and/or albums with many versions may have more records listed under these three sections. If that happens, we suggest you to search the artist one format at a time.

6) I noticed that one song is missing, why?

Spotify has many versions of each song and album, way more than often displayed in frontend. They often have slight alterations on their name.
In order to avoid flooding you with a lot of duplicated data and displaying messy totals, we took the decision to deduplicate lines based on the number of streams. If two distinct songs happen to have the exact same number of streams at some point, for that day the oldest song only will be displayed.

7) Why are tracklists of singles/compilations incomplete?

As we deduplicate songs to prevent us from double counting, tracks which appear in several sections (album, single, compilation) will appear only in the first one, which may lead to incomplete tracklists for compilations or singles.

8) Can I search for songs which are only available under the “Appears on” section?

Sadly, the answer at the moment is no. We have a solution to retrieve this data, but it requires an exponential number of requests to the Spotify API. This would greatly slow down this tool. For this reason, this option has been removed so far.

9) What does EAS stand for?

EAS stands for Equivalent Album Sales. As streaming is rapidly replacing paid-for sales, the industry standard is to convert these numbers into equivalent album sales. To understand how we convert streams in EAS at Chartmasters, please follow this link.

10) What is the conversion formula for EAS?

The conversion formula is Spotify streams * (310/207) / 1500.
The 310/207 ratio extrapolates Spotify streams into market-comprehensive numbers for occidental markets, simulating results on platforms like Apple Music, Amazon Music and Deezer.
The 1,500 division factor reflects the industry-accepted ratio between 1 album sale and 1,500 streams.
You can read more about format conversions with explanations on our Commensurate Sales to Popularity Concept.

11) Is the EAS conversion formula valid for every artist?

As any automatic program, this formula misses manual adjustments. In Sweden for example, Spotify accounts for over 90% of the market, so local albums are inflated by the 310/207 calculation.
Opposite to Sweden, Spotify’s market share in terms of gross revenue is only 25.2% in France, so the average formula will typically downgrade French language releases.
All in all, the formula is relevant primarily to international singers.

One album from BTS Spotify page is Missing.

“BTS WORLD (Original Soundtracks)
Please add that too.

Al

We can’t really do anything about it since the tool only retrieve releases from their artist page and the soundtrack isn’t listed there, likely cause it’s credited as a various artists album.

Update Top songs view is so great

Here’s an idea for the tool which could be interesting, especially for artists that have a significant output:
Create a SORT TOOL that would allow two things primarily:
a) sort songs by streams (regardless of album), and
b) sort albums by total streams
In other words, per artist, be able to display all songs and all albums in order of streams.
Regardless, the tool is fantastic!

Yes MJD – I saw!! Thanks:))

Queen’s ‘A night at the opera’, has now got more streams than any other album from the 1970s.

This is a great tool to get total streams for albums and compilations but I realised that for certain artists, a lot of their single and remixes EP are region blocked on Spotify for a number of countries which aren’t visible in the results when they are searched up. Some of those singles and remixes EP have millions of streams which wouldn’t be counted to their total because they’re region blocked and it appears the tool is showing results only what’s available on Spotify France I assume?

The Dude

Are you guys working on another streaming tool for Youtube and other sites?

MM1994

Could you make a list of ‘Spotify Top 100 most streamed musicians of all time’ using this method?

Hi MJD,

Thank you so much for this tool, this is so perfect for charts freaks 😂 I guess that it needed a lot of work but that’s amazing !
I can check numbers of all artists I want, at every moment, a dream come true 😁

borderwolf

Great to see every update, day by day! But the question is: when Spotify began tracks streams?

borderwolf

Thanks! Probably you have already answered to my question in the past, but, you know, I’m getting old! 🙂

MDNA

What about artists like Madonna who have a million versions of the same songs but they all have different streams. I guess you can only add them up manually as of right now?

MDNA

MDNA, you have the wrong email.

borderwolf

That is very helpfull! Thanks a lot!

Nathan

I looked at queen and it starts from the beginning, but ends at a kind of magic………….how do i get to the second half of their discography?

tom riise

Sometimes you need to click a couple of times before it loads properly.

Neil Young is now complete

Thanks MJD, it works much better, but we’re not there yet as far as I can see. I’m using Paul McCartney as a test case because he has one the longest solo careers and is quite active during those years. So what I see is that after the fix for the tool, instead of starting his solo career in 1982 (Tug of War), I now see the following: The years 1970 through 1973 are now there (through Band On The Run) and 1980 on, but we’re still missing the in between years (1974-1979). I don’t see for example the Venus… Read more »

I see your point MJD, thanks, but, I think something query-wise is limiting the results. Why? Well, Wild Life, Red Rose Speedway and Band On The Run appear when you query just McCartney. They also appear when you query only Wings. What’s so special about them? Shouldn’t the same occur for Venus & Mars, At The Speed of Sound, London Town and Back To The Egg? They all belong to the same category, namely, Paul McCartney & Wings. I guess I can understand excluding Wings’ discography from McCartney’s solo work, but that would have to exclude all of them, not… Read more »

I should say that the selection is done first by truly solo work – the display (of whatever makes the cut-off) is chronological
