Songs (Top 25)

Note that, to keep one artist from dominating the entire table, “≈Streams” is equal to s22+rs \cdot \frac{2}{2 + r}, where ss is the actual number of streams, and rr is the number of songs by the artist already on the chart. For example, a song by an artist with one song already on the chart will have its streams multiplied by 22+1=23\frac{2}{2 + 1} = \frac{2}{3}.
