DECADE OF DISCOVERY

Spotify Wrapped 2019 Reveals Your Streaming Trends, from 2010 to Now

December 5, 2019

The 2010’s are coming to an end, and soon we’ll be living in a new iteration of the “roaring ’20s.” (Will jazz become the predominant genre again? Only time will tell.) Whether the past ten years feel like they’ve flown or crept by, you’ve surely experienced a decade’s worth of change and growth. You may even be reminiscing with pictures of how you and your loved ones have matured or “glowed-up” throughout the years. But what about your listening habits?  

From 2010 to 2019, you’ve likely discovered new tunes and podcasts, fallen back in love with old favorites, and maybe even grown to enjoy a new genre or two. That’s why this year, we’re not only bringing back your annual personalized “Spotify Wrapped,” but we’re also showcasing our users’ listening throughout the last decade. 

That means this year, your Wrapped will include the songs, albums, artists, and podcasts you discovered throughout 2019, plus the artists you streamed the most throughout the decade on Spotify. It’s “Wrapped” the way you love it—but with more nostalgia than ever before.

Plus this year, for the first time ever, you can view your Wrapped right when you log in to your Spotify app—or head to spotify.com/wrapped. Once you’re in, you’ll discover your top artist, top song through each season, top podcasts, genres, total minutes streamed in 2019.

This year, we’re also showing how global your listening is by highlighting where some of your top artists hail from on a world map. Spotify users who have been with us for at least two years will get a personalized recap highlighting their top artist and total minutes streamed throughout the decade, as well as top artist and song for each year. Then, relive your top tracks in a personalized playlist, or take a look at the most-streamed songs on Spotify this year and throughout the decade.

Spotify Premium users will even get to go a little deeper, with access to additional personalized data stories and insights about their year in listening that includes the number of artists they discovered and the top artist they discovered this year.

Premium and Free users alike can share the results with friends, family, and followers through Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat or Facebook with a personalized “2019 Wrapped” or “My Decade Wrapped” share card. These are complete with a summary of your top tracks, artists, and genre from their listening history on Spotify.

This year, artists and podcasters can also simply log into their Spotify for Artists or Spotify for Podcasters page to discover how their music and podcasts connected with fans across the world in 2019 Artist “Wrapped” and the brand-new 2019 Podcaster “Wrapped.If you had three listeners before October 31st, a Wrapped experience is waiting for you—even if you still need to claim your Spotify for Artist or Spotify for Podcaster account.

Artists and their teams will receive a custom personalized Spotify “Wrapped” experience where they learn facts about their fan listening throughout the year including total fan hours streamed, highest number of fan streams per hour, percentage increase in followers and other metrics such as the country in which listening grew the most, the number of fans that had the artist as their number one artist, and more.
