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.

Hi Spotify 

Here we found new problem from Spotify , Important news .

In last month [ 220618 ] EXO surpassed 2,789,323,640 B streams on Spotify , but after 8 Days later in [  220625 ] EXO surpassed 2,789,323,640 B streams , so we lost 153 m total streams . 

We sure your Spotify systems deleted 4 songs of EXO Korean boy band , because they had 313 total songs but now we see 309 songs in their profile ,can you fixed it as soon as possible .
