2017 Wrapped: Spotify reveals your year in music – how to get your 2017Wrapped report

Technically, there’s still weeks to go until the end of 2017 but that hasn’t stopped Spotify getting a jump on the New Year with its Year in Music review.

2017 Wrapped: Spotify reveals your year in music - how to get your 2017Wrapped report

As in previous years, the streaming app has revealed which artists, tracks and genres have been streamed the most over the past 12 months across the platform, as well as created individual playlists tailored towards each user.

In a slight twist, however, Spotify is now presenting your most listened-to tracks and genres in a mini quiz. Called Spotify Wrapped, the feature has replaced last year’s Year in Music feature and shows you how many minutes you’ve used the app, your top five artists, songs and genres, and it’s created a playlist of your favourite 100 tracks.

Your 2017 Wrapped Spotify


To see your 2017 report card, go to Spotify Wrapped, connect your Spotify account using your username and password. If you already use Spotify web player on your browser you may already be signed in, in which case you’ll simply be asked for permission to connect the accounts.

From here you’ll be presented with a breakdown of your listening habits – presented as (quite cringeworthy) 2018 goals. The first “goal” on my 2017 Wrapped list was: “Keep discovering”. According to my Wrapped report, in 2017 I listened to 47,454 minutes of music, 2,844 different songs, 1,384 different artists and explored 34 genres.

The second 2018 “goal” is to be self-aware. In this section you’ll be asked to guess who your favourite artist was in your 2017 Wrapped report, which track you listened to the most, and your most popular genre before you can access your top 100 playlist.


Alternatively you can see your playlist from the Home menu on the app. The Your Top Songs 2017 playlist will be on the top left next to the The Ones That Got Away playlist featuring 30 songs and listed as: “A collection of songs you’ll wish you’d discovered earlier in the year.”

After being presented with your top 100 2017 Wrapped playlist you’ll see the next goal – “Refuse to act your age”. This is just an excuse for Spotify to show you the average age of people who listen to the same type of music as you. I’m 33 but people who listen to dance rock are typically 37, while those who like Dwn Trap are 24…not sure what I’m meant to take from this. 

The fourth goal is: “Keep being a baller.” This page is about how many times you skipped songs in 2017. My 2017 Spotify Wrapped report says: “You skipped 992 songs this year, which means your trigger finger is more active than most. Maybe start listening with a fidget-spinner in hand?” Ok. 

You’ll then be taken to your Ones That Got Away playlist, as mentioned above, before being presented with your final goal – “Be brave enough to share your listening history.” This is basically just Spotify’s way of trying to get you to share your summary on social media and drive traffic and signs up to the app. 

And if you want to see which artists dominated across the whole of Spotify, the Global Year in Music 2017 lists are below. The most notable change is that Ed Sheeran has knocked Drake off the top spot – and the fact not a single female made the top five most streamed artists of the year.
