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.

Hi! Just to let you know that ‘Music Of The Sun’ (2005) by Rihanna has passed 500 million streams 🙂


As for Titanic: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack – Collector’s Anniversary Edition in 1997, it’s stream most comes from My Heart Will Go On (Dialogue Mix) – includes “Titanic” film dialogue , but check it the most stream version is Let’s talk about love album version, no this soundtrack version


years & years night call was released a week ago and it’s topped 1 on uk, you guys should put their. ❤


I think ‘More Than Just a Dream’ by Fitz and The Tantrums (2013) has passed 500 mil!




I wonder if you could change your policy for only adding albums 500mil+ for the 40s and 50s – that way we could see the most streamed albums of that era.


Ozzy Osbourne’s Blizzard of Ozz ( 40th Anniversary Expanded Edition ) has over 500,000,000 streams. Would it classify as an album from 1980 or 2020? Most streams would have been before 2020.


I think ‘Yours’ by Russell Dickerson (2017) qualifies for the list


What is the line for appear in albums in spanish language list? Because the album Estopa from Estopa have more than 300 million plays only with the standard album with the studio version of the songs. So, seeing the list maybe should be included now.


Hi jt1916!

Same as English albums at 500m. It’s only lower than that for 2020 (450m) and 2021 (300m) releases.


Thank you!

I doubt it for the presence of albums just few above the 300m mark and that in the other languages there is a lower line, but i guess that have sense for the power of music in spanish, in especial in spotify nowadays.


Shouldn’t The New Abnormal by the Strokes be included in the 2020 list?




Seeing a trash album CLB getting more daily streams than = by Ed Sheeran or Welcome to the Madhouse by Tones and I that is carried by Dance Monkey with 1,9m daily streams gives me crippling anxiety and urge to punch this list in the face!? Isn’t there an easier way to do this? Data is inaccurate all the time


Data being inaccurate you not liking the results and are two different things.
