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.

Could Guns N’ Roses numbers be updated please.

tom riise

Someone needs to update The Beatles.

Aitor

Sia has 35 songs that have surpassed 100 million streams on Spotify.

Aitor

Not 26.

Aitor

And also Sia has 4 songs that have surpassed 1 billion streams on Spotify.😭

BMS

This tool only counts “lead” not featurings. For example;
“Titanium”s lead artist: David guetta
“Dusk till dawn”s lead artist: zayn
So that’s why you see 2, not 4. Everything is correct.

Aitor

So why does it appear that Ariana Grande has 8 if in leads she has 6.

BMS

Positions
7 rings
thank u next
No tears left to cry
Into you
Side to side
One last time
*Bang bang ( this song is on both Jessie J’s and Ariana’s albums)

All 8 songs can be found on Ariana’s albums. So she is considered as lead artist. That’s why.

Aitor

Oh thank you

BMS

You’re welcome!

mark

Taylor Swift’s numbers have not updated for several days now; can you fix it?

fve

Micheal jackson is wrong

BMS

Hello! Could you update Doja cat? Thank you!

Charlie

Guns N’ Roses search is not picking up tracks from Use Your Illusion II (deluxe edition).

Aitor

Sia’s feats numbers are wrong.

dead

where is ghostemane he has 1.7 billion streams should be up here

Eliana

Where the hell is queen? Aka the greatest band ever!

Tony

I agree greatest band ever, so so underrated
