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.

me podrian decir cuanto tiene justin biber all credits porque le estan contando bad guy de billie eilish

Charlie

Some artists chart position such as Metallica are not being updated after search results. It appears to be an issue since end of 2021.

Taylor Swift

I think Taylor’s lead number is wrong. CM counts Babe and two versions of Renegade as lead but they are not

Timo

Wouldn’t JuiceWRLD be the biggest legacy artist instead of Queen?

For be considered a legacy artist you have to make your debut before the 2000s, while JuiceWRLD debut was in this decade in the streaming era.

bruh the beatles has 25 million views and elton john has 52 million

Speed of Life

Is it possible to track songs no longer on the artist home page but still on spotify and possible to link through playlists?

Erik

TWICE has over 10Million Monthly Listeners Last time I checked, which was 4/1/2022.

Looking forward to you updating the charts.

Thanks

weachica

the chart is about total streams, not monthly listeners

brunito

si pueden arreglen los streams de justin bieber porque otra vez estan contando bad guy de billie ellish

Sonique

I find it really weird that BTS earned 380k+ EAS from streams after a week while Taylor Swift only earned 190k when she’s outstreaming them by millions in Spotify

Al

Hi Sonique!

It’s because their EAS conversion rate is larger since they’re much stronger on Korean and Japanese platforms as well as YT.

Sonique

Yes, I know. I’ve been watching the increase in streams, it has been steady for weeks but then it rose up quickly and added 380k out of nowhere.

Sonique

Oh okay that explains everything. Thank you!
