Spotify Wrapped is back for another year, and everyone is finding out what they listened to most in 2020. But what are the worldwide stats? Let’s find out the most popular songs and artists of the year.

Every year at the start of December, popular music subscription service Spotify introduces its ‘Wrapped’ feature, a way for users to look back at their listening habits of the past year.

The feature lets you see exactly which songs and artists have been your most popular in 2020, also telling you which genre is your go-to and how many minutes in total you’ve listened to Spotify in 2020.

As well as your own personal Spotify Wrapped, Spotify also releases global stats, sharing the most streamed songs and artists of the year amongst Spotify users.

Let’s explore some of these worldwide stats.
