What Does Your Spotify Wrapped Say About You?

1 min read

When Thanksgiving ends, the “official” holiday season begins; Starbucks starts using their holiday cups, windshields freeze over in the mornings, and ever since 2016, the annual “Spotify Wrapped” comes out. It’s a personalized list of your most-listened-to artists and songs displayed in a fantastic slideshow, concluding with a personal message from your top artist.

With over 100 million songs on Spotify, there are a plethora of artists and songs to choose from, leaving the possibilities of top 5 artists endless. Students at M-A have a wide variety of music tastes, from rap to RNB to country to pop. But what do students think their music tastes say about themselves?

“I think it says that I like more chill and upbeat music. Frank Ocean has been my number one artist for the past three years so I’m for sure a loyal fan.” – Nicole Jones

“I feel like it says that I like hip hop music a lot because those are mostly my top artists. My mom really likes Coldplay, so she kind of got me into them. I’ve been to two of their concerts.” – Jack Kryger

“3 out of 5 of my artists were women, so I think that says I prefer female artists over men, and generally like more relaxed music. I mostly listen to music as I’m doing homework so it can help me concentrate.” – Sadie Scherer

“I think my music taste shows that I obviously like rap and listen to music that will make me energetic and put me in a good mood.” – Ethan Vesely
