Our song ranking enables you to sort and compare up to 43 million tracks according to their performance on social media and DSPs and use customizable filters to get valuable insights. It displays the evolution of a song performance in volume or percentage for a given period, ranging from 7 days to 28 days to 90 days.

The best part is that you can also try out this feature with a free account, gaining access to the first 50 songs of the ranking!

How to understand the song ranking

Each cell includes three values:

  • The first number in white represents the song's total figures on the platform listed at the top of each column.

  • The second number indicates the evolution of the song's performance in volume.

  • The last number measures its evolution in percentage.

According to the example above, 'Blinding Lights' has more than 4.07B streams on Spotify. In the last 28 days, it has gained more than 54.4M streams, an increase of 1.35%. Its YouTube views have also increased by 1.55%, representing 11.7M views.

How to sort the chart

  1. Choose to focus on the total figures or the most significant change in volume or percentage of a song's performance;

  2. Choose a period to study;

  3. Use any column to rank songs and organize the chart.

How to filter the chart

To refine your analysis, you can filter the song ranking by artist’s nationality, song genres, release date, label type, or performance with ranges from 12 platforms' metrics - Anghami, Boomplay, Gaana, Genius, Jiosaavn, Line Music, Shazam, Soundcloud, Spotify, TikTok, YouTube & airplay.

You can also activate or add blocklists to hide artists or songs that do not match your criteria, leaving you with only the desired artists or songs in view; and use the favorites filter to focus on your entire roster at a glance.

Focus on: the favorites filter ❤️

Use the favorites filter to quickly access the songs' performance of your entire roster at a glance.

Stay focused on how your favorite artists' catalog performs using sorts (total, growth, % growth), growth period (last 7 days, last 28 days, last 90 days), and filters available in the song ranking.

Focus on: the performance filters 🚀

Use performance metrics filters in the song ranking to zoom in on a specific range of tracks' performances (total value or percentage of change). Performance metrics include Spotify streams and popularity, YouTube views, radio plays, Shazam counts, etc.

E.g. choosing to focus on the songs' performance in total value.

E.g. look for songs with between 20% and 25% of Spotify stream growth during the last 28 days.

160,479 songs are matching 🤘

You can combine these filters. E.g. look at the same songs above that have between 20% and 25% of Spotify stream growth. Now apply more filters such as +1M Shazam counts and +5M YouTube views.

Now, only 4 songs are matching!

Some examples ⬇️

Focusing on pop songs from American artists, with a Spotify popularity above 90/100, we want to understand which of these songs has the highest virality on TikTok. Over the last 28 days, 'Beautiful Things' experienced the most significant increase in the number of TikTok videos created (+362.2K), followed by 'Flowers' (+127.4K) and 'yes, and?' (+119.5K).

Focusing on self-released songs with less than 1M streams and launched in the last 6 months, we want to understand which medium-sized performers might be trending and unsigned. Finally, to refine our ranking, we activated our blocklists to see only artists or songs we've not hidden in the past - and we've added 'The Three Faces of Balal' & 'Mr. Hypocrite' to our blocklist.
