How to see Spotify Wrapped 2021: Where to get your most played artist and song stats and UK data explained

Spotify has launched its ever-popular Spotify Wrapped feature for 2021 – although many users are currently having trouble accessing it.

Wrapped, which tells users their listening habits of the past year, is only available through the Spotify app.

And while some have been sharing their most-streamed artists and top songs on social media, there are also thousands of angry comments from people unable to see their results.

How can I see my Spotify Wrapped?

If you head to the Spotify Wrapped website it says “2021 Wrapped is ready” and tells people to head to their Spotify app to see it.

It should appear on your homepage. If it is not there yet, keep checking back.

Once you have access you will be able to see data such as your most-played songs and artists, how many minutes you’ve listened for, your genre preferences and your favourite podcasts.

There is also a more general Wrapped feature that includes playlists of the year’s most-streamed songs, which you can access online as well as through the app.

Who were the most popular artists this year?

Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny was the most popular artist of 2021 – his songs were streamed more than 9.1 billion times.

The reggaeton artist also took the crown in 2020, when he became the first non-English language act to be Spotify’s most-streamed artist of the year.

Taylor Swift came in second place, thanks to her two rerecorded albums, Fearless and Red.

K-pop group BTS, whose hits include ‘Butter’, came in third place. They were followed by Drake and Justin Bieber.

Olivia Rodrigo’s “Driver’s Licence” was the most-streamed song of the year, after being played more than 1.1 billion times.

Second was Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call me by Your Name)”.

Justin Bieber and The Kid LAROI took third with “Stay”, followed by another Rodrigo hit, “Good 4 U”.

Dua Lipa rounded out the top five with “Levitating”.

Unsurprisingly, Rodrigo also had the most popular album of the year – her debut effort Sour.

Lipa’s Future Nostalgia, Justin Bieber’s Justice, Ed Sheeran’s = and Doja Cat’s Planet Her also made the top five.

Spotify said: “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.

“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.”
