It is that time of the year already. It is time to look back on 2017 and take stock of what happened over the course of the year. For us in music, that means going over the best of the year. Spotify has rolled out its year-end content, with its most streamed artists and songs of the year, in addition to personal wrap-ups for each individual user.

If you aren’t a Spotify user, well this won’t apply to you, but if you are, then it is interesting to see your listening habits. You can head to their special Wrap page and follow the prompts to learn about your top genres (there are some strange ones), artists and songs of the year. You can also listen back to your top 100 songs in one snazzy playlist.

Beyond your listening habits, the world was listening to Ed Sheeran. He was the most listened to artist in the world, most listened male artist and had the most streamed album and song “Shape Of You.” Rihanna was the most streamed female artist, followed by Taylor Swift. Some emerging genres include melodic power metal (huh), chaotic power metal (isn’t it all?), chillhop, future funk (hell yeah).
