Most streamed artists on Spotify – How it works

What is this ranking about exactly?

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 appear in the “Featured streams” column.

I was looking for an artist and can’t find them. Why?

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 data tool to look for the related artist and if he scored enough streams he will automatically and instantly appear in this top. In fact, we update numbers continuously as you search for them. As soon as new daily data is in for an artist, this will be reflected in the overall ranking.

There’s an issue with the data. How does it get fixed?

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, we perform manual fixes.
If the issue persists, reach out to us to tell us about it.
