It’s become almost a tradition of sorts, where your favorite music streaming service shows you how much music you listened to this year, and what your favorite artists, tracks and genres were. Spotify has just released their “Wrapped” for 2021, which is pretty similar to what they did for 2020. It’s a really cool visual representation of what you listened to this year.
Here’s how you can find your Spotify Wrapped for 2021, as well as what other playlists are available that you may want to add to your library.
What is Spotify Wrapped 2021?
What exactly is Spotify Wrapped? Well it is their year in review that they provide for every user – free and premium. It’s a yearly feature that shows you the listening habits over the past year or so.
In 2020, Spotify started using an Instagram Story-like carousel to put your listening habits into perspective. Showing you the songs you listened to the most, your top artists, and even how many minutes you spent listening this year. There’s a lot of cool metrics in there, but the feature that I love the most is the curated playlists that Spotify creates. Not just for your popular songs, but also those around the country and the world.
How to find your Spotify Wrapped
Like usual, Spotify Wrapped can only be found from the Spotify app on iPhone, iPad or Android. When you open the app, you should see a banner in the middle about Spotify Wrapped 2021. Just tap on that.
If not, you can search in the search bar “spotify:special:2021” and that will take you to Spotify Wrapped for 2021.
Here, you will see an Instagram Story-like carousel showing you different music you listened to this year. It’ll showcase your listening habits as well.
Once you get to the final page, it’ll show you the Top Artists and Top Songs that you listened to this year. As well as how many minutes you listened to Spotify for, and your top Genre.
You can tap on the “Share” button at the bottom to share this to Instagram, TikTok, Facebook Stories, or really anywhere.
And that’s Spotify Wrapped for 2021!
How to Add “Your Top Songs 2021” to your Library
You’ll also want to add the “Your Top Songs 2021” playlist to your library. This is your top 100 songs that you listened to this year, and you’ll be able to add it to your library pretty easily.
While you go through the Instagram Story-like carousel that we talked about above, on the fifth story, you should see something that says that you deserve a playlist that is as long as your skincare routine.
This will show you the playlist, and a button to “Add to Library”. Just tap on that button, and it’ll be added to your library.
Alternatively, if you don’t want to browse through that carousel, you can search for “Your Top Songs 2021” and it should be the first result.
What other Spotify Wrapped 2021 playlists are there?
Spotify doesn’t just make playlists for each user, it also makes other 2021 playlists, to help you find music you might have missed or even forgotten about.
On the Spotify homepage, you should see a new carousel that says “Best of Fresh Finds 2021”, this has a number of different Fresh Finds playlists for different genres, including:
- Fresh Finds
- Hip Hop
- And many more.
Spotify does make other playlists for Spotify Wrapped 2021. These are found towards the top of the home page, in the Spotify Wrapped section. These playlists include:
