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.

The list is missing so many names, like BIGBANG, G-Dragon

Taylor Swift

Thank you guys for the update. CM counts every song appearing on artist page as lead streams but that’s not totally right, hope it will be fixed in the future.

Padilla

why’s Justin Bieber’s Total frozen for days now

brightest_blue

Honestly I’m finding this new table harder to read

Kris

Are you able to make it so that the column headers are always visible as we scroll down the list? So we can always see what each column represents? I find it hard to remember what each column is when I’m looking at artists that aren’t right near the top. I know I’ve seen that feature on other charts where the headers scroll down with you as you scroll.

It would be great if you could add this to all your charts on the site!

The larger text size definitely helps, thanks!

baraka92

Nice makeover.
The Beatles are about to get to 40 100m songs (combining all versions) and sometime this year they’ll have their first 1b song. Massive stuff!

Taylor

Hey Team, Love your work.. just wondered if you could please explain why lead streams feature only for ranking? I’m just curious (as a big swiftie I don’t mind myself). It would be cool if the database had an ability to sort artists by combined overall streams (lead and feat).

Taylor Swift

Cause music industry never recognizes feat songs, check artist certification on RIAA bestie

Koro

Why do you sometimes substract the weeknd featured streams?
A week ago he had 3.7 billions, now he had 3.1 billions

soham anand

yeah i notice that, he has couple of songs with 600 mill which are featured –
low life with future, love me harder with ariana, or nah and pray for me. they substract the streams from one of these songs. I personally think weeknd has more than 3.7 bill featured streams as these four make it 2.4 bill

dearprudence

Another day to tell this,, DIE4U by Bring me the horizon (the legit single) should be on their discogs. Why is it removed? Bring it back so their total streams are 4 billion now
