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.

Ethan Ickringill

Hey, based on past days, I’m under the impression you’ve doubled the amount of streams everything’s gained in the past day.


Hi Ethan!

It’s because it didn’t update the day prior, so it’s actually streams gained the past 2 days.


I think the 2004 list is missing Natasha Bedingfield’s ‘Unwritten’


(as in it has more than 500 million streams)


Please add Caprisongs by Fka Twigs


Hey just wondering why BTS’s Love Yourself Answer isn’t here, the songs from Tear count towards that album. It’s officially listed under Albums on Spotify also, just FYI.


Yeah, Love Yoursel Answer is NOT a compilation album when it has 12 new songs: 1.- Euphoria 2.- Trivia: Just Dance 3.- Serendipity – Full Lenght Edition 4.- Trivia: Love 5.- Trivia: Seesaw 6.- Epiphany 7.- I’m Fine 8.- IDOL 9.- Answer: Love Myself 10.- DNA – Pedal 2 LA Mix 11.- MIC Drop (Steve Aoki Remix) – Full Lenght Edition 12.- IDOL (feat.

I was wondering the same thing


Is Mitski’s new album ‘Laurel Hell’ eligible for the 2022 list?


Oh okay it looks like you’ve raised the minimum to 100 mil? I’ll be back when it hits that marker


Hi! I hope you’re doing good
Just wanted to tell you that the album “Lo Que Te Conte Mientras Te Hacias La Dormida” released in 2003 by “La Oreja de Van Gogh” has just surpassed 500 million streams, I hope you can add it to the list 🙂

Here are some albums I think you could track since they’re close to 500M:
Salute (Expanded Edition) (2013) – Little Mix (476.7M)
Avril Lavigne (Expanded Edition) (2013) – Avril Lavigne (469.7M)
CrazySexyCool (1994) – TLC (468.7M)

Thank you!!


La Oreja de Van Gogh’s alnum is added!

I just did some accounts and I think that if everything continues like this, sour could become the most listened to album near its third anniversary
Nico Knöfel

Maybe I’m blind but where’s The Kid Laroi?


Yeah you’re blind lad


I have a question. In the total of the albums, should appear the normal/original version of the songs from the album or a special/delux/annyversary version? Because there are some albums that the streams include that versions, and others that also have special versions, only the normal version is counted. For example, with a streaming research of the Beatles albums, i realizaed that the total of the plays of the White Album here includes the versions of the 2018 mix, but that dont happen with the other albums like the Sargent Pepper, Abbey Road or Let it be.
