This is the Spotify chart thread for July 2019, the go-to topic for the discussion of Spotify playlists and charts!

Spotify FAQs

What is streaming? What are the chart rules regarding streaming?

For streaming and chart rules related FAQs read this thread.

How do I see today's Spotify chart?

To see the daily top 50 update on desktop, log in to Spotify, click 'Browse', then click 'Charts', then click 'United Kingdom Top 50', or click the link below. The desktop top 50 may update before anything else so is always worth checking if the website is not up to date. However recently it has been known to not to do (even when the website has), so do check all sources. Also note that the Spotify Website will update before external websites (Kworb, LivePopBars). Occasionally there will be a delay in the Spotify chart updating which could even take days.

Useful web links:

Spotify App [top 50]
Spotify Website [top 200]
Kworb [top 200 and extra data]
LivePopBars [top 200]
SponOnTrack [top 200]

Hot playlist links:



How often does the chart update?

It should update once every day, usually in the early afternoon - although this is not 100% guaranteed. Sometimes the top 200 on the website will update but without the top 50 on the app updating, and sometimes there will be no update at all.

How many plays on Spotify equals one download sale?

100 plays if you are on Spotify Premium, or 600 if you are using the ad-supported free tier. However you cannot simply play a song that many times in one day to give it one sale, you are limited to 10 plays per day in terms of what counts to the chart. (Spotify will let you play a song on repeat 600 times if you really want to).

The number changes to 200 or 1200 plays when a song moves to ACR. For more information on the rules of ACR see this thread. For information on what songs are currently on ACR and what songs will be moving to ACR, refer to this thread.

How much does Spotify contribute to the chart?

Streaming contributes over 90% to the singles chart as a whole, although good paid-for sales are still essential for making the very top of the chart in most cases. Spotify counts for at least half of all streaming sales (probably, we can't actually be sure on that), so doing well on Spotify is essential for doing well in the chart.

Why is my fave not doing well on Spotify?

Is it being promoted on one of Spotify's major curated playlists? If it isn't, it's unlikely to really take off! Hot Hits UK is the biggest of these playlists, with over a million followers. The playlist usually updates itself to include breaking hits once or twice a week, though there is no guarantee that your fave will get a place on the playlist. Also, the UK Top 50 is a largely followed playlist and that songs often experience a 'top 50 effect', when they enter the top 50 and get the additional exposure of being on the playlist.

Often sales hits don't cross over to being streaming hits, this is usually the case for songs with an older target audience, reality or campaign songs. Also keep in mind that it often takes longer for a song to take off on Spotify than it would on iTunes.

My fave didn't debut high and is falling already, does this mean they're flopping?

Not necessarily. Most songs debut relatively low as they aren't instantly well-known, and experience a sharp decline on Day 2 as they no longer have the promoted 'New Music Friday' effect. A lot of songs manage to recover through gaining popularity and additions to playlists. Exceptions to the rule of course come from massively hyped artists/releases such as Justin Bieber/Ed Sheeran/Drake who will of course enter straight at the top.

What do the numbers mean?

The streaming figures cited in the daily chart are the number of streams each song received the previous day. Unlike the iTunes chart, Spotify is not a rolling chart so the numbers will only change once per day.

I'd prefer Ed/Khalid over Shawn/Camila actually, oops! But I'd still take Shawn/Camila over Ed/Justin.

Why is Mr Brightside climbing again? Do people not realise two things:

1. It’s 2019, not 2004
2. The Killers have other songs too you know

Because it's an iconic track, and they just headlined Glastonbury.

It's not difficult to guess

I thought this tbh but did expect it.

What caused it to become so iconic. Initially it didnít stick around long at all on the charts.

Mr Brightside is an amazing track, brilliant musically and lyrically, every line in the song is genious, it's a 21st century classic

I've wondered the same thing for 15 years laugh.gif I didn't even chart it first time round it came and went in a flash, yet Somebody Told Me topped my chart and All The Things That I've Done hit my top 10 twice in a few months, the album was fab I bought that - and I still didn't rate Mr Brightside as that special biggrin.gif

I think it's a blokey song, optimistic and self-affirming in the face of losing a girl and getting jealous, which prob speaks to lots of dumped teen boys and older.

the song has also a very bizarre and unique song structure in the sense that the second verse is the same as the first one

'Mr. Brightside' is a good song, but I think at this point I'd be happy to never hear it again. It's been so overdone.

Plus 'Somebody Told Me' was always so much better.

Mr Brightside is one of the greatest songs of all time. I know it's overplayed and stuff, but that to me just seals it as an all time fave due to me not tiring of it despite thinking that! wub.gif
