Top 100 songs by Spotify streams as of Nov 28 2019

I've updated the Spotify stream counts for Prince in the lead up to the release of the 1999 Super Deluxe and thought I'd share. As usual, I combine different versions of a song into a single total, so that the total for "Purple Rain", for example, reflects streams of the album version and various edits and live versions on Spotify.

Here are the top 100 in terms of total streams:

[1] Purple Rain: 167,785,421 (prev rank 1)
[2] Kiss: 160,759,132 (prev rank 2)
[3] When Doves Cry: 86,056,873 (prev rank 3)

It's strange that no titles from Originals except for "Nothing Compares 2 U" have cracked the top 100. It's good to see some more modern songs like "Black Sweat" continue to climb.

[99] Venus de Milo: 58,814 (prev rank 105)
[100] Our Destiny/Roadhouse Garden: 58,030 (prev rank 104)

With the shorter window, there is more movement. Evidence of new releases show up with some of the tracks on The Versace Experience as well as the pre-release 1999 Super Deluxe singles and the "I Feel for You" demo. Some of the Originals songs have unsurprisingly fallen off hard after their initial stream counts over the first 3 months, but it's good to see some of them still among the top 100 here.
