Top album debuts on Spotify – Methodology

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 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 It means we exclude streams rated as non-organic by Spotify.

When the tracklist of an album isn’t entirely charted inside the weekly top 200, we estimate remaining tracks according 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, Spotify has deleted the original version, and only more extensive releases remain available. Unless we explicitely spotted and fixed it, this should negatively impact the average per track.

That said, let’s now get to our top album debuts on Spotify!

  1. It’s unfair to list the releases according to the filtered streams when you know really well that some benefitted from deals (free streams and miminum filtering)… Maybe it would be better to mention that factor in your article at least.
    Than, if this is about albums (min 8 tracks) so why listing EP with 4 tracks… If we count “Born Singer” and “Quotation Mark” then Proof has 5 new tracks released.
    Sorry but this article is really weird and not at all objective

    • Hi Alicia!

      It’s excluded since it’s a compilation album, most songs are from other releases.

      It won’t be added, this is the last time I’m answering this question.

      • most songs are from other releases but it was 4 new songs (ytc, run bts, for youth and born singer) HOWEVER Taylor re recorded album (all songs were previously released) is in the list, make sense, make sense. if anyone is wondering PROOF debuted with more than 172M streams what put the album somewhere near #43
