Top Spotify albums – 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.

The global ranking (g#) is comprehensive for albums over the 500 million mark. Below this number, albums listed are top recent albums or top streamers from local markets, for them the global ranking is meaningless.

No, unfortunately it’s not possible, as the Japanese version is not available in our territory and as these lists are automatically updated, we can’t manually add or remove tracks from or to albums. The only version that is available to us is the 17 track Target Exclusive version, so we have to go with that one.

it’s on the 2020 list as it is technically a re-release of f*ck love with bonus tracks


something is wrong with the all time list

Christian Smith

Green Day’s 21st Century Breakdown album has a Deluxe version which features 4 cover songs. That should be there instead of the regular version, right?


Deluxe Versions are only included, if the tracks on the deluxe version are mainly duplicate versions of tracks that are on the original album.

Saying that, the deluxe version of 21st CB as far as I can see, is not actually on Spotify.

It is there for me. It may not be available in your location


Yes, this seems to be a recurring theme. The other week someone was asking why some Mariah Carey tracks/remixes were not showing in her streaming numbers and I couldn’t find them. They were available to him in Portugal, but not me in the UK. Yes, when I click on your link it shows the deluxe version but the last four tracks (the covers) are greyed out and hence unavailable for me to play. When I search for the album in the UK, it just shows the original 18 track album and that’s it. I guess it’s to do with all… Read more »
