This is the Spotify chart thread for April 2020, 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 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.

Little Mix still falling despite having the song on Hot Hits twice (and it getting moved up the past few days). We absolutely hate to see it. I thought this was gonna be a big hit too ��. Maybe since Capital and Radio 1 are playing it now it's got a chance?

I think it really needs to be higher on Hot Hits for it to rebound. It's only song #24 at the moment, once it gets in the first 10 we should start to see it make gains. It's the type of song that will very much depend on its HH support too.

Some interesting positions at Apple:
5 PartyNextDoor & Rihanna
6 Blueberry Faygo
18 Little Mix (but dropping, was #14 yesterday)
20 Meghan the Stallion - Savage
21 Khalid/Disclosure (was top 20 yesterday)
22 Sam Fischer - This city
34 JP Saxe & Julia Michaels

Strange to see Madison Beer in the Top 200, she's not even on any playlists as far as I'm aware??

I don't like LM at all and their last 4/5 singles were all a 0/10 for me,
but the new one is good, and that comes from a non-fan, sure a return to form

Strong and brave choice of words coming from a Westlife stan...

Break Up Song is doing fine rn. It could do with being moved up on Hot Hits, but it's performance on Apple Music is exceeding my expectations rn. They must have some really strong playlisting over there!

Now that Capital are spamming it and Radio 1 playlisting on Friday (only C - usually once a song moves up to B that's when movements and effects start becoming more noticeable iirc) I think it's going to hold pretty well.

I think Break Up Song will do well in the long run and peak later on. The song may spend a few weeks in the top 20 after it’s top ten debut then once airplay and streaming support gets better (specifically from Spotify) it should help the song repeak. That type of chart run for Little Mix would be a return to form for them after a string of under performances.

I'm fairly certain this will be 'Break Up Song's peak week, but I think it'll have a much better chart run than 'Bounce Back'. I can see it getting a few top 20 weeks.
