How do you get "My Decade Wrapped"?
Yes, it's 2019. That's a wrap on another decade. So, Spotify is also offering you a glimpse at your listening habits over the last 10 years. You can access that in the same way you grabbed your "Spotify Wrapped" info. Scrolling through is the same and sharing cards detailing your listening insights is the same. Perhaps the only thing that's different is your willingness to reveal the No. 1 artist and top songs you've listened to over and over again throughout the last decade.
What Was the Most-Streamed Music in 2019?
Spotify divided the 2019 list into listening habits around the world and in the US. The most-listened-to artist in the world was Post Malone, who raked in a staggering more than 6.5 billion streams. He's followed by Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, and Bad Bunny. That aligns with Spotify's list of the most-streamed albums around the globe, which was topped by Billie Eilish's When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, followed by Post Malone's Hollywood's Bleeding, Ariana Grande's thank u, next, Ed Sheeran's No.6 Collaborations Project, and Shawn Mendes' self-titled album.
While that all seems to make sense, things get a little more mixed up when it comes to the global list of the most-streamed songs. That list is topped by "Señorita" by Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes, which was the only song that crossed the billion-listen threshold for the year. It's followed by "bad guy" by Billie Eilish, "Sunflower" by Post Malone and Swae Lee, "7 Rings" by Ariana Grande, and "Old Town Road - Remix" by Lil Nas X with Billy Ray Cyrus. Then again, are there any surprises there?
The lists inside the US are similar, though it looks like the US likes Post Malone a lot more than the rest of the world. The most-streamed artist list in the United States was topped by Post Malone but was instead followed by Drake, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, and Khalid. Ol' Post wound up with two albums on the top albums list. Hollywood's Bleeding led the way with Billie Eilish's When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? coming in second. The list was rounded out by Ariana Grande's thank u, next, Post Malone's beerbongs and bentleys, and Khalid's Free Spirit.
Finally, the top songs in the US were dominated by Post Malone. "Sunflower" took the top spot, followed by Post Malone's "Wow," Ariana Grande's "7 Rings," J. Cole's "MIDDLE CHILD," and Billie Eilish's "bad guy." See any parallels with your personalized list? You're probably not alone.
What Were the Most-Streamed Podcasts in 2019?
If you're looking for new podcasts to fill your commute, you might be interested in the most-streamed podcasts of the year. The Joe Budden Podcast took top honors there, followed by My Favorite Murder with Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark. The next two slots were grabbed by the German podcasts Gemischtes Hack and Fest & Flauschig. Rounding out the list is The Misfits Podcast.
If that reads like an ancient runic language to you, but you want to listen to more podcasts in 2020, Spotify's new interface might be a boon. Free users with no podcast listening history will now see a card on the homepage that says "Get podcasts for you." There you can select topics and interests that you want to dig into. It will then display podcasts based on your stated interests. It's a feature only available in select countries, but the US and Canada are among those regions.
