Billie Eilish

Since the release of her first single Ocean Eyes in 2016, Billie Eilish popularity got bigger day after day until reaching the top some 3 years later with the album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

What’s her biggest hits? How big is she? We’ll find it out thanks to her streaming statistics!

Billie Eilish 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* : Xiami streams * 125/6.5 (Xiami has just over 5% of the Chinese streaming market)
– 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 in 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 + ( Xiami * 125/6.5 + YouTube ) / 11750

Where do you get the streaming data for “comprehensive audio streaming”? I mean, the streaming numbers of that section

Olexiy Karzhaev

Sade most streamed tracks))) please correct


Can you redo Billie Eilish stats please? I wonder how far she is now.


I think you all shouldn’t put “dont smile at me” tracklist as Orphan because the EP is selling very well, I mean, I know that’s not a studio album but it’s selling like one


How you know the another audio stream?


She really is incredibly impressive. She might very well become the Adele of the streaming era.

[…] a 2019, após uma série de singles expressivos nas tabelas musicais, Billie não surge em cena com um simples EP mas sim com o seu primeiro LP de […]

Her album name isn’t Orphan.. it’s Don’t Smile At Me.


Hi Aisyah!

We use the folder “Orphan” for every recording that doesn’t belong to an original studio album. Since she regards Don’t Smile At Me as an EP, we followed her opinion and listed songs accordingly.

Ryan Wu

Do Halsey please.


3m before her debut album! NICE!!
