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.

Please select your view: by country or by artist.

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

Tats

Hey, Born Pink had in the first week 1.578.206 in Colombia with Charted Streams

Kero

Proof still is an album with new songs , so it should be here 🥴

Kris

Lots of greatest hits albums are released with new songs. All it means is that there are new songs, not a new album.

Carl

then why is re recorded Taylor album there if its full of old songs?

Gab

it’s re-record are you that dumb?

Nicolle

Where is THE ALBUM from Blackpink?

Al

Hi Nicolle!

All their releases are listed here (given it got enough first week streams to be worth noting down)

Alicia

where is Proof? the BTS album that was released on June 10, 2022m

Al

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.

Nicolle

Hi, excuse me, Where is THE ALBUM from Blackpink?

Sarah Miles

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

Sarah Miles

here is PROOF by BTS?

Flatti
