Spotify launches personalised Wrapped playlists for 2021 


Whether it’s a heartbreak playlist or an album of 90s pop anthems, many of us have guilty pleasures on Spotify that we’d rather weren’t known to the world.

Now, Spotify is about to remind you just how cringe your listening habits are, with the launch of its annual Wrapped playlists.

The playlists showcase your most played songs, albums, artists and podcasts of the year, as well as the top tunes of Spotify’s 381 million users worldwide.

‘If 2020 was the year that flipped the world on its head, 2021 was the year that we got used to seeing things upside down,’ Spotify explained.

‘With “normal” thrown out the window, we embraced the unknown and championed all of the things that make each of us unique.’

‘Spotify’s 2021 Wrapped is a celebration of this — the millions of weird and wonderful ways to listen and live in a world that continues to keep us on our toes.’
