Spotify biggest debuts world map

Among Spotify records, one of the hardest to take is the most streamed debut album in a country. Back in 2017, Ed Sheeran destroyed former bests in plenty of countries with Divide, just like Drake who shattered these scores with Scorpion a year later.

As the platform grew, local markets started making more and more money as well, developping their own music scene. Only a few years later, local stars now lead the ranking in most countries around the World.

Drake, Bad Bunny, Ed Sheeran, Blackpink, Capital Bra, BTS, etc, what’s safe is that getting the #1 debut album in a country requires to be immensely popular on it.

This page presents two views, by country and by artist. The former will show you the largest debuts of all-time in a country, while the latter displays for an artist the streams and the rank of his albums among all-time lists when they performed well enough.

The methodology is simple, album streams are defined as the total number of streams from its tracks. A debut refers to the first week of release. Numbers reflect filtered streams in the same way as spotifycharts.com. It means that streams rated as non-organic by Spotify are excluded.

When the tracklist of an album isn’t entirely charted inside the weekly top 200, remaining tracks are estimated thanks to their relative strength during the first days. Omissions will be rare but they can happen. If you notice an album which should be added, please let us know using the comments.

For some albums, the original version has been deleted by Spotify, with only more extensive releases available. This impacts the average per track which may be deflated in these cases unless we explicitely spotted and fixed it.
