Every year, Spotify gives its subscribers a chance to reflect on their listening habits for the past 12 months with Spotify Wrapped. The cool feature offers an insight into the songs, artists, albums and podcasts people across the globe have consumed throughout the year and provides each user with a deep dive into their own tastes. 

The results are celebrated and shared all across social media, no matter how revealing or embarrassing they might be. But regardless, Spotify Wrapped release day has become a fun event among music lovers who mostly display their achievements with pride as a form of celebration of their favorite tunes.
