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.

Thank you

Hema

How many does Chris brown have right now total streams.

swifty

I think you should change your Spotify most streamed top 10 artist’s picture now. Taylor is 10th most streamed artist not f**king Kanye.

HELLBOY

Kanye is still ahead of Taylor Swift as per overall streams

Martin

Yes, she’s actually only 22nd when all streams (features included) are counted.

Can you please release a list that includes overall streams

Jay

Wondering if these staggering figures now being incorporated by Billboard into charts will ever truly replace official rankings of physical sales for albums and singles . Its a bit confusing for a non professional because for example Nat Coles Christmas album chatted up to #8 on the Billboard( Xmas albums from the past were excluded for years from the main chart after initial release too) but when looking closer its all the streams of one song , the iconic version of The Christmas Song that pushed it into the top ten ( like Mariah as well). Anyway it’s astounding how… Read more »

Why some artists is not updated everyday?

brunito

hola ,una pregunta porque a bad bunny le estan sacando stream a cada rato ,hace unas semanas le sacaron 400 millones y hace 3 dias le sacaron 200 millones mas ,ahora que es el artista que mas stream esta recibiendo veo injusto que le esten sacando a cada rato,a justin bieber le sacaron pero a los dias se los devolvieron ,por favor una respuesta y espero que le devuelvan los stream porque ya habia pasado a post malone all credits

César

Créeme que no es porque les da la gana de sacarle porque les cae mal, esto se actualiza solo (sistema) y lo que puede estar pasando es que están sacando canciones que no están en su página de Spotify y por lo tanto no cuentan o simplemente hay un error en el sistema.

brunito

estoy siguiendo el dia a dia las actualizaciones ,durante 1 mes siguieron con todo actualizado correctamente y de la nada le sacan 400 millones y mas tarde 200 millones mas ,eso no es un error de sistema ,porque sigue un patron de actualizaciones y que de repente le saquen stream no tiene sentido ,te puedo creer que le saquen por algun error 20 ,40 o hasta 100 millones pero las cifras que te dije ya es mucho ,espero que lo revisen ,porque todas las cuentas informan en base a charmasters y si dan una informacion y a los dias se… Read more »

Which songs are included under featured streams, shouldn’t it be more than only 110m streams?

Fghhj

I see, thanks.

Marina

Hi, suga’s interlude bu halsey feat bts is at +50M and who by lauv feat. BTS is at 93M, waste It on me by steve aoki is at 193M alone so I think It need updating on features, or maybe this are already counted on overall streams?

itszshreya

bts is at the 20th spot now with 14.23 Billion streams you need to update it

ItzHELLBOY

Then why don’t we add the features stream and then rank according to that because even if they’re featured the streams still go to them

itszshreya
