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.

Arijit Singh have 7 songs of 100 million correct it

Jose

Hello friend, Bruno Mars has a total of 7 songs that exceed a billion and you only say that he has 5 songs, you should correct that error

Omkar

Where is sidhu moosewala

Rupinder

Top 1000-1100 de vich kar aa

Omkar

Tell in brief

ram

harry styles have way more

BMS

Hi, list is completely changed, bad bunny had like 44 billion lead streams, now its updated and 29 billion. Can you explain the changes? Thank you

lamtt

I’m curious about what changed or if it was a mistake. Feat numbers when it comes to bad bunny are also tricky af since imo he carries the streams of almost every song he is on

Anon

Hi, was wondering if you could share where you’re getting your data from?

BMS

Thank you so much for explaining!

anastasia

Im sorry But bts does not deserve to be on this list

Robin

And why is that?

Alex

Envy. the numbers are there

amino pro

why havent you updated some artist for like two months?

Unpolarized Toast

cost they probably haven’t changed

amino pro

They have tho. It seems like they only update the top 100 list frequently. They dont really bother updating the rest of the list even if those artists get millions of streams every day

Why is Ed Sheeran’s ‘The Joker and The Queen’ remix featuring Taylor Swift, only listed on Taylor Swift’s spotify numbers tool page by Chartmasters, and not included on Ed Sheeran’s page? The song is about to reach100 million streams this week but only Taylor will be credited for it for another 100M song.

BMS

Because she is the “lead” artist. That’s why.
