This is the Spotify chart thread for January 2020, the go-to topic for the discussion of Spotify playlists and charts! It is the 7th year that I've opened a Spotify Chart Thread in too and hopefully not the last.

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 the #1 still can be decided by who has better paid-for sales. Spotify counts for a good chunk of streaming sales (although it appears to be losing some market share as Apple Music and Amazon Music gain in popularity), 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.

So... Tones is up 38% from this day last week. Ew. x Total this week so far on Spotify is 2.40m compared to 2.32m up to the same point last week though which is only a 3% increase. That number will probably rise by the end of the week though as I imagine it'll still be up week-on-week in at least tomorrow's update too.

inb4 it only has a small increase for the week but the streaming market as a whole is massively down so literally nearly every song that had any increase at all gets reset

Endor with a big rise up to #11, had a huge rise on Apple today as well. Will be very comfortably top 10 this week then (maybe even close to the top 5?) and can see it continuing to be massive over the next few weeks, there have quite often been huge dance hits at the very start of the year.

Yass at 'Mr. Brightside' being back in the top 40 on Spotify as well cheer.gif x very close to the highest position it's ever had on Spotify according to Kworb (#28).

Do ACR resets still take market share and growth into account or is it simply a 25% increase is required? Seems like bad guy will get reset either way

It's 25% of the market and the market will be significantly lower this week which is why people feel some songs will be on SCR!

I'm with Bjork, Pump It Up is awful x It sounds cheap in every sense, dance music can do better than that even in the realm of cover versions.

Streams for yesterday are awful! Dance Monkey on 360k, down 50k on last week (Xmas day when it wasn't even top 40)

On the same day 2 weeks ago, 101 songs got over 100k - today only 36 songs got over 100k
