(WGHP) — December 1st marks a most auspicious day: Spotify Wrapped Day.

Spotify launches its year-end ‘Wrapped’ campaign on December 1st, unveiling the top artists, albums, podcasts and songs from the year for its more than 300 million users.

So who soundtracked this most unusual 2021?

Puerto Rico’s Bad Bunny is the year’s Most Streamed Artist for the second year running with over 9 million streams.

Apparently, we were all singing along to “drivers license” by Olivia Rodrigo in 2021. Probably while crying or eating some ice cream. Her debut single is the Most Streamed Song of the Year, and she also beat out stiff competition for Most Streamed Album of the Year with her record “SOUR.”

“The Joe Rogan Experience” led the way for podcasts across the world.

Today, users can access their personalized Spotify Wrapped playlists…and humiliate themselves by trying to explain to their friends on social media why they listened to “It Wasn’t Me” by Shaggy 67 times.

So what were we listening to in 2021?
