Methodology

This page provides you with up to date lists of the most streamed studio albums, per year, per decade and of all-time, on Spotify.

Singles that have been issued before the start of the selected period are thus included in full.

In case several versions of the same album exist, the one with the highest total of streams is displayed.

The column EAS stands for Equivalent Album Sales. It reflects the worth of these audio streams on par with album units. This data extrapolates remaining streaming platforms.

Where is Katy Perry- Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection?

These lists (same as the all time one) wouldn’t need breakdowns by songs because you have them in the yearly ones. That would be a better way to compare albums that aren’t from the same year, but are… Read more »
