Spotify ‘Wrapped’ has arrived: Here’s what dominated Canadian streaming charts

Spotify’s long-awaited annual “Wrapped” campaign is here.

On Wednesday, the platform with over 456 million listeners released the streaming data on user’s mobile apps. Music lovers can now access a personalized list of their favourite bands, songs, playlists and podcasts in 2022.

Since it launched in 2016, the campaign has been embraced by music fans as a signifier of one’s taste (or lack of taste), a metaphor for one’s mental well-being and, of course, a meme template.

A new “Wrapped” feature tells the user what “personality type” they are out of 16 Spotify-created options, based on their listening trends.

How to see your Spotify Wrapped 2022

Users can view their “Wrapped” list on the Spotify app or their web browser.

On your phone, the list should be available on your home page. If you can’t find it there, you can type “wrapped” into the search bar. (Make sure your app has been updated!)

Here’s what Canadians streamed last year:

On Spotify, Toronto-based rapper Drake, who released two albums and a single last year, was the most streamed artist in Canada, followed by Taylor Swift and The Weeknd.

Drake was also the third-most-streamed artist on the app globally, behind Bad Bunny and Taylor Swift.

Justin Bieber’s “Stay” was the app’s third-most streamed song globally.

The Weeknd also put Canada on Spotify’s global charts. His album, “Dawn FM,” held the fourth spot as most streamed album worldwide.

Harry Styles captivated Canadians on Spotify last year. His hit “As It Was,” was Spotify’s most streamed song in Canada, and was the app’s most streamed song of the year with more than 1.5 billion streams worldwide. Styles’ album, “Harry’s House,” was also the most streamed album in Canada.

The podcast show Canadians enjoyed streaming the most was “The Joe Rogan Experience,” followed by “Call Her Daddy” and “Armchair Expert with Dax Sheppard.”

Instafest: Spotify users build their personal music festival

Earlier this week, music fans discovered a free app external app called Instafest, which uses Spotify user data to build a customized music festival lineup, complete with a Coachella-esque poster. The easy-to-use app, developed by Anshay Saboo, allows you to create a custom poster based on based on different time intervals. It also gives you a “Basic Score,” which apparently tells you how niche your music taste is.

More to come.
