Get ready to be read by your listening stats, because Spotify's 2020 Wrapped is here

Yes, you probably did listen to more *pop artist you're embarrassed about* than you thought this year.

It's the most fantastic day of the year for music fans. No, not the Coachella nor Splendour In The Grass lineup announcement day, nor the day Spacey Jane released Sunlight. Instead, it's the day Spotify Wrapped goes live for 2020, meaning you can relive your trauma of the year and the music that helped you through it (or the music that was there for you as you wallowed in the confusion and strangeness of the year that, as Spotify say, may be the longest one ever).

It's the usual deal this year, highlighting how many artists you discovered, how many genres you listened to and which ones were listened to the most (yes, like Australiana indie and Escape Room, which we're still figuring out), which song was your most-listened (as well as which day you listened to it first, and most), your top five most-listened songs (and more, in playlist form), which song you listened to before anyone else, the nostalgia of what non-2020s decade you streamed the most, artist of the year, and yeah - you know the rest.

There's also a similar platform for podcasts too, descending into which podcasts you listened to the most, and - in-line with Spotify's drive to give you a mix-match of both their music and podcast-hosting sides - there's also a playlist that gives you a bit of both, mixing together your most-listened artists alongside some podcast episodes Spotify believe you may be interested in.

There's also the announcement of the listening habits of Australia and the greater world too. Bad Bunny, Drake, J Balvin, JuiceWRLD and The Weeknd are the world's most-streamed artists, while The Weeknd's Blinding Lights, Tones and I's Dance Monkey (!), Roddy Ricch's The Box, Imanbek's Roses remix and Dua Lipa's Don't Start Now are the most-listened songs. In Australia, the artists are Juice WRLD, Drake, Taylor Swift, Eminem and The Weeknd, with Blinding LightsRoses and Don't Start Now making the song list, alongside DaBaby's Rockstar and Harry Styles' Watermelon Sugar. Here's hoping all these artists got paid more than $30 for their ridiculous amount of streams.

Anyway, you can take a dive into your own personal Spotify Wrapped 2020 by logging in here (seems to only be working on mobile at the moment, but stay tuned), and find the deets of the world's greater listening habits underneath:
