It's weird because on my Spotify it still isn't in MJ's top 10 most streamed tracks. Heaven can wait still is nr 10 closing in on 20 million streams in a day or 2. So by that logic shouldn't that also be on the viral chart then?
I don’t know how Spotify works but is the top 10 about most overall streams or songs that are currently the most streamed?

It is currently because the likes of thriller haven’t been in the top 10 the last 2 months. I think it updates weekly. The top 10 doesn’t change a lot, I think heaven can wait took over either thriller or remember the time’s top 10 spot in the last 2 months.

So naturally I forgot to check the numbers a day later.
I checked them now though 3 days later and Chicago is currently a top 10 MJ streamed track at nr 9. In 3 days it added about 1 020 000 stream to its total. Which means about 300 000 a day which seems in line with the earlier twitter post by @Nite Line

Heaven can wait dropped out of the top 10 and added about 260 000 streams in 3 days. It seems its resurgence is over. It will break the 20 million barrier in the next 3 days which is also a nice milestone.

Michael’s Chicago is now his 6th most streamed track per day. Breaking the top 5 should be hard as I haven’t seen a change here since halloween (thriller): billie jean, beat it, smooth criminal, don’t stop till you get enough, rock with you.

Either way it is doing better than heaven can wait in its peak

Just saw on Twitter that Michael now has 31 million monthly listeners on Spotify and that is roughly 5 million more than this time last year. Pretty awesome :)

yeah but I did listen a lot to MJ this month so the figure is a bit inflated 😛

Unless I misunderstand this statistic, doesn't it mean individual monthly listeners? In which case even the most obsessed of us :sneaky: can only make so much of a difference!

Yes completely true. My own inflated number several dozens of songs only counts as one in this list.
I wish would be more statistics available!
For example how much streams each song has per day or how many people have loved a certain track etc

1. Number Ones: 559 weeks. Still currently charting.
2. Thriller: 259 weeks. Last charted in August 2016.
3. Off The Wall: 225 weeks. Last charted in March 2016.
4. Bad: 180 weeks. Last charted in August 2015.
5. Dangerous: 102 weeks. Last charted in September 2009.
6. History: 95 weeks. Last charted in August 2009.
7. The Essential: 89 weeks. Last charted in March 2019.
8. 18 Greatest Hits: 55 weeks. Last charted in September 1984.
9. King of Pop: 39 weeks. Last charted in January 2012.
10. The Best Of: 31 weeks. Last charted in June 2014.

It's obvious looking at this list that Michael has too many greatest hits albums.
