What were your most played songs of 2018?
Tired of ‘Last Christmas’ and ‘Fairytale of New York’ already? Spotify’s got your back. The Swedish music-streaming service (and our go-to app for making ‘getting ready’ playlists) has just unveiled Spotify Wrapped. The annual feature breaks down your listening habits for 2018, making it super simple to indulge in all your #faves of the year.
To marvel at your own impeccable taste, head on over to the app where you’ll find a playlist called ‘Your Top Songs 2018’…which is basically what it says on the packet. Pop your earphones in and enjoy a playlist that is essentially the musical equivalent of replaying your own Snapchat story and having a giggle at how utterly HILAR you are.
If you want a deeper dive into your listening habits – we’re talking an analysis-of-what-star-sign-you’re-most-musically-drawn-to level of depth – then head to spotifywrapped.com for all the grisly details. Yes, you did listen to the A Star Is Born soundtrack that many times. We’re here with you.
And although Mindy Kaling once said she would rather have someone read her diary than look at her playlists, we’re betting our bottom euro your mates on the social pipes won’t feel the same. Spotify Wrapped gives you the option to share your stats on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and WhatsApp so prepare for feeds to blow up.
