How do genre charts work?

We define genres based on info from listener playlists (title, description, etc.) and our music curation teams. We don’t use info from metadata or the playlist pitching tool in Spotify for Artists.

We recognize genres constantly evolve and songs can cross different genres. The way we assign songs to genres may change over time, and we may add new genres too.

A song can show up in more than one genre chart. Only songs released within the last 18 months are eligible for genre charts.
