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.

21 Savage’s streams need to be updated. In spotify, the album, Not All Heroes Wear Capes is credited by Metro Boomin AND 21 Savage. The same goes for Savage Mode 2 where Metro Boomin’s streams need to be updated. Please fix this issue, thank you.

Jazz

With the recent death of Olivia Newton John. Is she going to be amongst the next artist to be studied.

Aitor

Pls update Sia’s streams

Fra

The chart is completely wrong. Shakira is #17 (just checked). This has not been updated for a while, and the last update section must be fake.

BMS

“Monthly listeners” list is completely different thing. It’s temporary and doesn’t mean that more monthly listeners = more streams. This is all-time streams list.
