This is the Spotify chart thread for August 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.

AJ snatching a #3 peak *.* I keep thinking he's already peaked but now this surely will definitely be the highest it goes (especially as Dominic Fike might overtake, great that that's still climbing so consistently as well).

Incredible how well AJ Tracey and Dominic are doing, crazy considering the limited playlist support they have
compared to Beautiful People or Senorita

It’s been amazing watching the longevity of both of them. Here for Becky Hill’s “I Could Get Used to This” getting another wave and re-peaking again.

Looks like we’re getting a new Drake album/mixtape tomorrow judging by his instagram post

So expect him to have a fair few songs debuting highly on Saturdays update but should have strong promo on streaming sites probably Apple being the most prominent?

Probably won't make any more impact than 'So Far Gone' did.

Glad to see that 'Days In The East' will finally be available to stream though, really like that song.

With The way it's pushed WW I won't be surprised if it is, but it's very very underwhelming for me also.

Ariana added straight to HH, track #20, also Raye - Love me again, Tones & I - Dance Monkey,
and that horrible Lauv/Anne Marie song too

They've moved as bit 3 Nights (track #9) but there are still a lot of great songs that are too low and have been too low for ages
and never been given a proper chance on HH (Higher love, Hate me, All the time, Find U Again, Canter etc
Freya is the cover of HH now

Boyfriend is a low key bop! Love the throwback r&b vibe! Should do decently.
