How we calculate charts

We generate chart stream numbers using a formula that protects the integrity of our charts, and makes sure all voices of our users are reflected.

This formula means not every stream on Spotify is eligible for Charts. Some songs may have fewer chart-eligible streams than others, depending on streaming behavior. So the stream count you see in charts might look different to the app and Spotify for Artists.

Our chart filtering doesn’t impact the royalties we pay to creators.
