It’s already that time of year for Spotify to release its special “Wrapped” feature, which provides users with personalised analytics of their music listening habits from the past year.

The music streaming service first released Spotify Wrapped in 2016. The statistics provide music fans with their top listened-to artists, albums, songs, podcasts and more to share with their friends.

Spotify Wrapped for 2023 is officially live! The streaming platform has typically released the feature on Wednesdays at the end of November – last year it was on Wednesday 30 November and in 2021, it was Wednesday 1 December.

How to access your personalised Spotify wrapped when it’s ready

For those interested in participating in the viral hype, you must be a Spotify subscriber. The feature will likely pop up automatically when you open the app. However, if it doesn’t, you can go to Spotify’s website or check out the “home” section of the app and Spotify Wrapped should be there.

There has previously been some confusion about whether music listened to beyond October is included in Wrapped’s data. Last month, Spotify confirmed on X that music listened to beyond 31 October does indeed count.

This year’s top five listened-to tracks globally were Miley Cyrus’s “Flowers”, SZA’s “Kill Bill”, Harry Styles’s “As It Was”, Jung Kook’s “Seven (feat Latto) (Explicit ver)” and Peso Pluma and Eslabon Armado’s “Ella Baila Sola”.

Taylor Swift overtook Bad Bunny’s as this year’s top listened-to artist with more than 26.1 billion global streams. The reggaeton superstar came in second this year, followed by The Weeknd, Drake and Peso Pluma.

Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti album, however, took the top spot as the most-listened-to album of 2023, while Swift’s Midnights came in second.

As for podcasts, Joe Rogan’s The Joe Rogan Experience was the global favourite, and YouTuber Alex Cooper’s Call Her Daddy podcast landed as number two.
