As the year comes to an end, everyone who uses Spotify is looking forward to one thing: their Spotify Wrapped. This is a great look back to all songs that we’ve blasted in the car or cried to in our rooms, and Spotify remembers all of it. Spotify gave everyone what they’ve been waiting for, and I decided to take you all along on my 2019 music journey.
Shockingly, my number one artist this year was the alternative pop band Chase Atlantic. For the past two years, I’ve been getting KPOP group BTS as my artist of the year. Chase Atlantic’s music tends to be more atmospheric and moody, so either I was really going through my feels or it was something else. I apparently spent a total of 47 hours listening to Chase Atlantic, so that was a bit surprising, to say the least. However, my artists of the decade ended up being BTS, and if you know me that’s nothing new.
My top artists were Chase Atlantic, BTS, Lil Peep, Lana Del Rey, and Halsey, so I feel that sums up quite a bit. I wasn’t super surprised by this either since I typically listen to them every year. The most surprising musician that didn’t make my list was probably alternative band Catfish and the Bottlemen. I played them a lot this summer so I really expected them to be on my list.
My top song of 2019 was National Anthem by Lana Del Rey, and I listen to that song religiously. I have been listening to that song on repeat every single year since 2015, and I’m not exaggerating. My top song of 2018 was Sweet Nothing by Calvin Harris so going from an EDM-heavy song to a dark pop was an interesting twist.
Truthfully, many of the songs I listened to the most this year, were on my top songs of 2018 and 2017. I feel that I expand my music taste a lot, but there are just some songs that I will never get sick of. I know I’ll be playing this playlist on repeat to reminisce on my entire year music-wise.
If you have Spotify, I hope your Spotify Wrapped was a fun treat to look back on! Play your favorite songs of the year while you study for your finals! I hope you enjoyed this post and good luck to everyone on your finals next week!
