With music streaming becoming the primary mode of media consumption for many today, Spotify has positioned itself strategically to cater to the needs of almost all audiophiles. Perhaps it is the mammoth music library, the fact that it is available across many regions, or the inclusion of podcasts and Audiobooks
Towards the end of each year, Spotify treats its subscribers to personalized analytical details on their listening habits with fun statistics on metrics like minutes listened, favorite acts and artists, most listened to tracks, and so on.
For music lovers, this is a rather interesting experience and Spotify usually makes quite the experience out of it. As such, Spotify’s annual Wrapped has become many users’ favorite bit about the platform especially as the year comes to a close
Well, 2022 is drawing to a close and as expected, Spotify is here with 2022 Wrapped.
2022 Spotify Wrapped Highlights?
Along with the personal playlists, Spotify has released some stats, and here are some of the highlights. The platform has confirmed that Bad Bunny was the most-streamed artist globally in 2022. He managed to snag up this slot thanks to more than 18.5 billion streams around the world this year. The second most-streamed artist was Taylor Swift, followed by Drake, The Weeknd and BTS.
Harry Styles’ “As it Was” was the most-streamed song on Spotify around the world. The Joe Rogan Experience was the most popular podcast of the year globally on the streaming platform.
Part of what makes Spotify great is the algorithm. The platform is known for its near-insane ability to help you discover new songs, songs that you will actually like. This same engine is used to create this Personalized 2022 Wrapped experience show and also allows users to show it off to the world.
The personalized experience is unique to individual users so you’re sure you’re getting the most personal touch from Spotify.
Creators should also get a personalized experience with their 2022 Wrapped based on their specific metrics and listenership. This should apply to podcasters and artists alike, something that was missing from previous Wrapped experiences.
