Methodology

To begin, we took the number one most streamed song in each country listed on Kworb’s Spotify charts for the week commencing 21/09/2023. We recorded the song name, artist name, and number of streams for the week. We then used Wikipedia to find the primary genre for each song.

We were then able to determine the most streamed songs in that period by adding the total number of streams for the week on Spotify. We then did the same to determine the most streamed artists and genres.

For the most featured artists, we simply added up how many different countries each artist ranked at the number one most streamed on Spotify for the week commencing 21/09/2023.
