Spotify Launches Weekly Music Charts

Spotify is launching weekly music charts, including an albums chart, in a move that expands on the platform’s top daily songs tally.

The Weekly Top 50 will tally the biggest albums and songs in the world each week, Friday through Thursday, consisting of a US Weekly Album Chart, Global Weekly Album Chart, a US Weekly Song Chart, and a Global Weekly Song Chart, published each Monday.

The US Top 10 Debuts and Global Top 10 Debuts lists capture the biggest new releases on Spotify, Friday through Sunday. These lists incorporate data from the first 72 hours a song or album is live, giving an early take on new music.

“Spotify’s new-and first ever-album charts will showcase the power of albums on the platform, highlighting the craft of creating a full album, the immense effort that is often involved, and the way that albums connect fans all around the world,” the company said in an announcement. “Albums are stories, and often deeply personal ones, that artists are telling in their own unique way and we want to celebrate these artistic labors of love.”
