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.

4 is the minimum number of tracks to count as an ‘album’ on this chart, right?


Hi. I was wondering why TWICE’s ‘Taste Of Love’ ep, released in 2021, doesn’t appear when you search for TWICE’s 2021 albums and their most streamed albums? Is it possible to add it?


Please add zayn’s nobody is listening in 2021 album


I can’t find the rest of Anitta’s discography besides Kisses and Versions Of Me


Hi! Why can’t I find some Brazilian albums like “Pandora” (over 150m streams) or “Batidão Tropical” (over 100m streams)? Also, There’s 2 versions of “DOCE 22” on Spottily, why they aren’t combined here?

Because none know these albums


How does chartmasters determine what year an album belongs to? For example, Spotify calls hopeless fountain kingdom (Live From Webster Hall) by Halsey a 2022 album, presumably because more than half of the 35 tracks appear to have been recorded live in 2022, while chartmasters lists the album as a 2017 album.


Hi airbag!

The year is always when the first version of an album came out commercially.

This version is basically a reissue of HFK adding a remix of “Alone”. The live tracks are mainly songs from the original album too, anyhow these only add for a few millions in total so it’s not like it changes much.

I can’t see Zayn’s “Nobody is Listening” on the list of 2021 albums. It has over 400m streams.


I’m not sure why people downvote rather than just giving a sensible answer. The answer is that Zayn will need 500 million streams. There might be some exceptions, e.g. foreign language albums.
