The start of December marks that time of year again, folks. No, not gauging ourselves on Quality Streets and listening to Justin Bieber's Christmas album on repeat (though that too,) but when all the end of year round ups arrive. Specifically, Spotify Wrapped.
Twitter has been going wild for their Spotify Wrapped playlists, which essentially aims to round up all of the songs, artists, albums and playlists you've been loving this year, and give you a little insight into what has been your most popular.
For the first time, Spotify also introduced the ability to follow your top song’s journey through the year, revealing when you first streamed it to its 100th stream to some of the notable streams in between.

Understandably, fans have been proudly sharing their playlist on Twitter, displaying their number of streams for their favourites like a badge of honour.
Spotify also revealed the most popular songs of the year all together. Drake was the most popular artist in the UK, reclaiming the number one position from Ed Sheeran, while The Weeknd's 'Blinding Lights' was the most-played song in the UK. Lewis Capaldi's Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent was the top album.
Bad Bunny was the biggest artist globally, amassing 8.3bn streams in total - 3.3 billion of which were for his second album YHLQMDLG. The second most played album was The Weeknd's After Hours, followed by Post Malone's Hollywood's Bleeding in third, and Harry Styles' Fine Line and Dua Lipa's Future Nostalgia in fourth and fifth place respectively.
BRB while we go and listen to our 2020 playlist on repeat all day.
