Spotify has made it possible by offering its Wrapped feature, which is open every year at the beginning of December. If you haven't, Apple users may find a Wrapped-like feature, as well. After all, we don't all utilize Spotify.

It works in Spotify's favor that it lets you listen to music for free if you're cool with ads, whereas Apple Music requires you to pay for a membership right away, according to Music Ally.
The most-streamed song of 2021 was "Drivers License" by Olivia Rodrigo, and Bad Bunny are Spotify's most-streamed singer. One really cool thing about Spotify's Wrapped is that you don't have to be a subscriber to get your data to determine which artists and podcasts were the most popular in 2021. This year, we learned that Bad Bunny is Spotify's most-streamed musician with more than 9.1 billion streams and Taylor Swift is the
Whatever Spotify or Apple to earn your top hits, year-end lists are always entertaining, and these platforms have made returning on our creative tastes more enjoyable. If you aren't pleased with how either Apple Music Replay or Spotify Wrapped have reflected your listening habits, both yearly lists refresh on Jan. 1, so New Year's Day is the ideal moment to start on next year's list.
