What Is Spotify Wrapped?
Spotify Wrapped is an annual recap of your year on Spotify. It is a year-end roundup that crunches the numbers from your music streaming habits, and then provides you with a personalized mini report. Wrapped is a way for you to relive the music and podcasts you listened to over the past 12 months.
Wrapped Personal Lists
Each year is different and while we don’t know what the next Spotify Wrapped will look like, below are the personal stats that Spotify Wrapped presents each year:
Your Most Streamed Song
This is the song you couldn’t get enough of – the soundtrack to your year. Wrapped also hows you exactly how many times you listened to your top track of the year.
Your Top Songs
Next in line are the top 5 songs you had on repeat. This list is a good reflection of the artists and genres that dominated your musical tastes over the last 12 months.
Perhaps your top songs are comprised of different artists and different genres or maybe you found yourself binging an entire album all year and your top songs were all made by a single artist.
‘Your Top Songs’ Playlist
The ‘Your Top Songs’ playlist contains the songs that you streamed most over the course of the year, ordered by the songs you played most frequently to least frequently. This playlist can be saved to your library and be accessed any time after the Spotify Wrapped event has concluded.

Share Your Wrapped

Each year as a part of Wrapped, Spotify releases the global statistics for songs, artists, albums and podcasts. Global Lists are a series of charts that reflect the listening trends of the world. While you will find a number of global Spotify stats on the app itself, Spotify released these global lists on their website which can be found here.
Spotify’s Blend feature is a shared playlist that gives you social recommendations based on all of your music tastes. Blend lets you create a playlist with up to 10 friends that mixes all of your favorite songs into a single playlist.
The playlist is automatically generated and is updated daily based on the listening activity of all of its members. Blend playlists can be created using a free or premium Spotify subscription.
To create a Blend playlist, type “Blend” into the search and select the first result. Next, select ‘Create a Blend’ and tap ‘Invite’.
