Spotify rundown the loved and new features they’re bringing to listeners with this year’s Spotify 2021 Wrapped.

By this point, you’ve no doubt seen your social feeds flooded with Spotify Wrapped. Spotify Wrapped is the streaming service’s yearly roundup of all of your most streamed artists, genres, songs, podcasts and the total number of minutes you listened. As with previous years, Spotify have included handy ways to share your stats across social channels like Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, but this year, you can also share your Wrapped on TikTok.

This year’s Wrapped bring new stats for you to show off to your friends on social media:

  • 2021: The Movie – This feature pairs your top songs with classic scenes from a movie that’s all about you.
