Spotify Most Streamed Albums

If you are looking for additional streaming tools, check out our streaming lab here.

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.

Hi
FYI bubbling under for the 2021 list
“Trip At Knight (Complete Edition)” by Trippie Red, it should have 240-250M streams

zago

FYI

2003 – José González – Veneer is around 490k right now, 500k+ in few weeks.

ed sheeran again

Purpose by Justin Bieber went from like 2m to 1152353 quickly 👀 is dat right?

Raffael

Add ARDIPITECHUS by Willow to the 2015 list it has 510M+ streams and also Featuring Ty Dolla $ign by Ty Dolla $ign has more streams than some albums of 2020 that should be added too.

Raffael

ok thanks

HengeBoy

MJD, when are you gonna update Sam Smith? speaking of them, I was told Love Goes flopped yet it’s the 8th best selling album of 2020, 3.7M with just streams alone, is not bad

ojd

it because their previous successful singles from around 2019 such as How Do You Sleep?, Promises and Dancing with a Stranger were part of the album, but because they were released so far ahead of the albums when the rest of the tracks came out people didn’t really associate them with the album and the rest of the album only really had a few very minor hits like Diamonds and small streams of album tracks

zago

Hi!

FYI bubbling under 500m for 2007:

Eddie Vedder – Into The Wild OST (should be around 495 right now)

Trya

A new album by Selena Gomez has been released called “Love you like a love song and more” should it be added to the list, or it does not count? I’m just asking, nothing else.

Raffael

You should add ARDIPITECHUS by Willow to the 2015 list it has 510M+ streams

add Equals by Ed Sheeran (13 billion streams)

Drewwwwww

What’s “Equals”?

ed sheeran himself lolo

the album he will drop October 29

Drewwwwww

Ohh.

elyst25

Can you please add She Is Coming by Miley Cyrus? It’s her EP released in 2019 🙏🏼
