The end of the year is fast approaching, including the imminent arrival of Spotify Wrapped, rounding up your past 12 months of music streaming habits. Recapping your most-played songs, artists, and other highlights into an easily-digestible slideshow, it's the prime time to look back on your rotation of annual hits. And while Spotify Wrapped hasn't kicked off just yet – it arrives this Thursday, on December 5, 2019.
Wrapped has steadily emerged a Spotify end-of-year staple, tapping into your user listening history as an unusual throwback for subscribers. It's scheduled to return again this December, with the Wrapped 2019 website now live, accompanied by a "Coming Soon" welcome screen. Spotify has confirmed personal Wrapped roundups will drop on sometime on December 5, 2019, in line with prior yearly availability.
Spotify has evolved the recap since its inception. Last year's site served the signature tailored playlists and listening data, even extending into common star signs among top artists, or common listening devices. It's unclear how this year's rendition will differ, expected to provide fresh insights in your streaming usage.
Ahead of Wrapped 2019, Spotify has released global data across the service, naming Post Malone as the most-streamed artist, with over 6.5 billion plays, tailed by Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande. "Señorita" from Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello topped the most-played songs, accompanied by "bad guy" from Billie Eilish, and "Sunflower" from Post Malone.
