Spotify Wrapped gives a personalized look at who you listened to most in 2019

Later this week, Spotify will be unveiling its personalized Wrapped stats. It’s a chance for Premium users to look back at the year that was and see which artists, songs, albums, genres, and podcasts captured their attention in 2019. Spotify has offered both a public and a personalized set of Wrapped stats in the past, but this year the company is expanding its view of the music and spoken-word world to an entire decade.

The Wrapped toolset, which also reveals facts like how many minutes of music you heard and how many songs you liked, has traditionally only been accessible via a custom website, making it a bit awkward to use. Last year, it required a bit of a hunt to find it. This year, however, Spotify is unlocking Wrapped’s potential as a social sharing opportunity: The Wrapped experience will also be available within the Spotify app itself, and share cards will be available for you to post on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat.

Beyond the annual opportunity to navel-gaze at our own music habits, Wrapped is an excellent opportunity to understand what the rest of the world is listening to. Given its massive global reach, Spotify is in a unique position to offer this perspective. Competing services like Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Google Play Music tend to have a much more U.S.-centric audience.

You might think this would reveal vast differences in how humans across the planet listen to music, but for the most part, the numbers reveal how we’re all heavily influenced by the strongest currents in music culture. Here’s a glimpse at the Wrapped stats for 2019, and the nine years that preceded it.
