Top Spotify albums – Methodology

Before sharing the up todate list of the most streamed studio albums on Spotify, here are a few things you need to know:

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.

include the original goodbye and goodraddance not the aniversary edition


i calculated and it would be 6012079174 streams


I find it really weird that BTS earned 380k+ EAS from streams after a week while Taylor Swift only earned 190k when she’s outstreaming them by millions in Spotify


do you think itzy’s ‘It’z Itzy’ could be on this list (it has more than 270M streams) ?


Some track totals on it are merged with tracks on prior Korean albums/EPs so I think I’ll have to exclude it


Faster Than the Speed of Night by Bonnie Tyler, Music from the Edge of Heaven by Wham! and Onka’s Big Moka by Toploader are above 500 million streams. Could you please add them?

Some of the release years listed here are also inaccurate:
Oracular Spectacular by MGMT was actually released in 2007, not 2009.
Back To Bedlam by James Blunt was released in 2004, not 2005.
Everytime We Touch by Cascada was released in 2007, not 2010.

By the way, Respect M.E. by Missy Elliott is a greatest hits album, not a studio album.

The release years are fixed and Toploader is added. I can’t find versions of Wham! and Bonnie’s albums over 500m though.


You’re welcome! Thank you for fixing the release years!

Bonnie Tyler has two versions of Total Eclipse Of The Heart. The album version has 47 million streams but the other version has 459 million streams and is on her greatest hits album.

Wham! has the same situation. The album version Last Christmas – Pudding Mix has 10 million streams but the other version has 872 million streams and is listed as a single.

What a mess, right?

Hi! Could you please add Britney’s “Femme Fatale” to the 2011 most streamed albums list? It has just crossed 500 million streams. Thank you!




Hi, ‘A Quien Quiera Escuchar’ by Ricky Martin has 445M streams, why isn’t it listed among the most streamed Spanish language albums? Can you please add it? ❤

The criteria is 500m.


I’ve found few others:

2014 – Catfish And The Bottlemen – The Balcony – 504m
2017 – Rex Orange County – Apricot Princess – 537m
2010 – Young The Giant Young The Giant – 507m




2014 – Alt-J – This Is All Yours – 770m

— Bubbling Under —
2013 – Daughter If You Leave – 499m
2015 – jamie xx – In Colour – 495m
2015 – Discloslure – Caracal – 492m
2011 – Arctic Monkeys- Suck It and See – 490m
2015 – Alabama Shakes Sound & Color – 480m

— Error —
Jet – Get Born is 2003 not 2013 (probably is something related to an anniversary edition)


Hello! I noticed that “Quiero Volver” by TINI is not included in the Most sreamed albums all time in Spanish. The album has +360M streams 🙂


Why does Pet Sounds include all the extras on the 50th anniversary edition, but Sgt Pepper does not?


fix the goodbye and goodriddance streams put the og not the aniversy version
