Spotify Most Streamed Artists Ever

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.

Hello, It says on the chart that Salaam Remi has one song with over 1 billion plays, and I checked his page and It doesn’t look like he does. Everything else on this chart is amazing though.

Blitz

That’s strange, when I searched it up on Spotify the only song that has that amount of streams and a similar name is Cheerleader – Felix Jaehn Remix Radio Edit, and the other version that came up that features Salaam Remi is Cheerleader (feat. Kid Ink) [Felix Jaehn vs Salaam Remi Remix] which has 25,854,201 streams.

Hi, I wonder if I can see an artist’s total stream on a specific date, not just the present date.

L145

the Spotify Streams tool isn’t working, it’s not showing any results and i have 3 credits left

What is featured streams?

Streams from tracks that the artist is just featured on, that have another artist as the main/lead artist.

Fanofpop

The new format doesn’t show number of tracks and number of tracks above each milestone

is it less computationally intensive? I preferred the old one

Monipodiowtf

What is happening with Green Day? Their numbers have not been updated since March …

Willie

I love this don’t know how you did it but it’s amazing

Fanofpop

He really is a chart legend

viv

selena has 3 1B+ tracks: We Don’t Talk Anymore, It Ain’t Me and Taki Taki.
