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.

So on Twitter, it’s said that BTS album Love Yourself just hit 5billion stream on Spotify. But I can’t find it here. Their most streamed album on here is Map of the Soul:7 and it have just 3.6b+ streams.
Can you please include the Love Yourself album


This list is for studio albums only. ‘Love Yourself: Answer’ is a compilation album, most of the songs are already included in ‘Love Yourself: Her’ & ‘Love Yourself: Tear’.
So if ‘Answer’ is included here it would be double counting for those songs.

And the bigger problem is if they start including compilation albums, you have much bigger compillation albums from The Weeknd, Queen, Eminem etc. which would clog up the whole top part of the list.


Def Leppard’s Hysteria has over 500,000,000 streams will it be added to list of albums from 1987.


It should pop up in the list tonight.

Hey, Years & Years just released an album called Night Call which has over 50 million streams. The only version available on Spotify is the New Year’s Edition which features previous hits. Is there a way of only including Disc 1 of the album which is all original for that album (This is Deluxe version of the album, but it just isn’t listed separately on his page)



Think we’ll have to exclude it for now.


Can you add The Suicide Squad Album from 2016?


Hi Raffael!

I won’t add it. Although it got a few original tracks are most streams from much older tracks. It’s closer to a various artists compilation really.


Why Avicii’s Stories have around 3 billion streams? This album didn’t even reach 2 billion streams.


Ed Sheeran’s = (Christmas Edition) doesn’t exist on Spotify anymore, there is only the standard “=” album and no deluxe version available, so could it be edited to correct album title now? Merry Christmas with Elton John doesn’t appear to be listed on Ed’s page using your Spotify numbers tool. Maybe it could be listed under Orphan, so when it reaches 100 million streams it will appear as another 100M song for him, as well as Elton John? Also what does Ed’s “÷” Divide album come up as ??, why not add the word ‘Divide’ instead in the album title… Read more »


@Al Can those 3 issues be updated on Ed Sheeran’s page, if you check his spotify you will see the “=” (christmas edition) was only for December and doesn’t exist anymore, so maybe can edit album title and total, so not including those merry christmas song streams. currently #312 on your Most streamed albums: alltime list above. Seems Merry Christmas is currently included on Elton’s The Lockdown Sessions album on Spotify. The Divide “÷” album still only shows up as “??” on the Streams on Spotify: Ed Sheeran – Discography View page here. Include Merry Christmas by Ed Sheeran and… Read more »

Hi VCM1234!

The title for = is fixed on his page..
No need to switch out the christmas edition as it’s not unavailable, just not visible in the app.
Can’t do much about the other issues if I’m not wrong, maybe MJD could have a look at it.


Why is Ed Sheeran’s ‘The Joker and The Queen’ remix featuring Taylor Swift, only listed on Taylor Swift’s spotify numbers tool page by Chartmasters, and not included on Ed Sheeran’s page? The song is about to reach100 million streams this week but only Taylor will be credited for it for another 100M song.
Divide ‘÷’ album title still comes up as ‘??’ for Ed Sheeran’s page plus the ‘=’ (Tour Edition) isn’t listed, only standard ‘=’ album


so enhypen released a reedition of their album “dimension:dilemma” called “dimension:answer” including 3 new tracks which was released in the last days. it has around 90M streams? does it counts for 2022 ?


Nope, it’s still a 2021 release


ok thanks !


Taylor swift just released an E.P with 70 million + streams, it was released in 2022


all the tracks streams are included in the red (taylor’s version) and it already counts for 2021

B Livie

Dawn FM (Alternate World) was released yesterday


yes please add Dawn FM (alternate world)


It should update to that version tonight!


Perfil by Marília Mendonça has more than 1B streams and was released in 2018, is it counted as a compilation?
