This is most likely due to the following reasons for labels and licensors:
- Labels: If you're using different licensors to distribute your music to different regions, the song or album might be ingested more than once. Since Spotify Analytics doesn't roll up the stats at the song recording level, you might have to search for different versions of the same album or song by URI.
- Licensors: If you're licensing music for a specific geography, Spotify Analytics will have different stats due to split rights. If you believe there's missing content, you can get in touch with us. If you have licensed different variations of the same song or album, you might have to search for different versions of the same album or song by URI.
Currently Spotify Analytics provides data at track level and doesn’t aggregate them at recording level. If you have access to multiple versions of the same track, you will see data for each version of the song.
The stats across artists, albums, and songs are updated around 12:00 noon EST for the previous day.
We don't currently support stream statistics for music videos. The total streams for a track are generated only from the audio version.
Yep! You can export stats as .csv files. Just click the download arrow at the top to download all stats or next to the specific chart to download chart specific data.
Note: It’s not currently possible to export playlist insights.
You can track your daily unique listeners, daily streams, and other stats from January 1, 2015 to today. Or, from when your music was first available on Spotify. Whichever came first.
Note: It’s currently not possible to customize timeframes for playlist insights.
Yes! You need to search for the older version of the song or album by Spotify URI. If you search by the name, it will show only the live version of the song or album.
You’ll see an error when trying to look at specific stats for a few reasons. Either:
- You don’t have the rights for the releases. If you think you have rights but are still unable to see the stats, get in touch with us.
- We don’t have the data for the dates selected.
A stream is when a user plays a song. If the same user streams the song 10 times, it will be 10 streams but one listener. You can toggle between streams and listeners for each chart.
Note: We’re testing Canvas view stats with a small group of artists, and using their feedback to improve before we expand availability. We’ll be rolling out to more artists over time, so stay tuned to our blog for updates.
A Canvas view is counted any time a listener opens the Now Playing view and sees the Canvas. Even though it loops, we only count a maximum of 1 Canvas view per stream of the song.
Also, because it’s counted regardless of how long someone listens to the song, it’s possible for Canvas views to be higher than the stream count (which is only counted after 30 seconds of listening).
When you hover over the timeline graph, you see the number of unique listeners or streams for the artist, album, or song selected over the chosen time period. You can use this to track engagement after a new release, or understand how your marketing or promotional efforts are impacting your growth.
On top of the timeline chart, we show you the total and average number of streams/listeners for the artist, album, or song over the selected time period. During comparison with artist, album or track, the top stats are for the primary artist, album, or song.
Yes. In the timeline chart, you can compare the timelines of streams/listeners between artists, albums, and songs that you have rights for. This feature is limited to 5 comparisons only.
Most artists on Spotify see a split of 53% male to 47% female listeners, so a 50-50 split would mean that you have more female listeners than average.
Listeners who do not identify as male or female select “non-binary” when they register for Spotify. This stat represents the percentage of the audience who identify as non-binary.
Through the Free or Paid chart, we show the split between the free and premium Spotify product.
In the country trend graph, by default it shows the top ten countries based on streams/listeners. It also lets you enter the countries that you would like to compare. The country used here is the country that the user is registered with in the Spotify app, not the country they’re listening to the song from.
Yes, they are.
These artists are determined by combining music discussions and trends happening around the internet with data we gather from listeners on Spotify. They update as an artist’s fans listen to more music on Spotify, and as more people around the web start talking about an artist’s music.
