As we officially enter December, Spotify has unveiled its 2021 Wrapped campaign and the most-streamed artists, albums, songs and podcasts of the year.

The streaming service revealed that more than 381 million users worldwide helped curate this year’s list. Bad Bunny took the top spot as the most-streamed artist globally with more than 9. 1 billion streams, while Drake is the US’ most-streamed artist. Olivia Rodrigo’s “driver’s license” and SOUR were also named the most-streamed song and album both globally and in the US, while The Joe Rogan Experience is the most popular podcast in both categories as well.

Eligible users can also finally take a look at their own Spotify Wrapped with added features — in addition to top artists, genres, songs, podcasts and minutes listened, the personalized Wrapped experience now also shows 2021: The Movie, Your Audio Aura, Playing Cards and 2021 Wrapped: Blend, as well as allow users to share their Wrapped cards on TikTok. Finally, more than 170 artists and creators have made videos to thank their top fans for having them in their wrapped.
