spotify wrapped 2023 predictions

holy shit bro i am excited for spotify wrapped. i think it should be coming out this week? it's usually right around the end of november/beginning of december. i'm just a slut for statistics and shit like that, especially about music since i overthink my listening habits.

my top 5 artists last year were

1. Joji

2. Coldplay

3. Tyler, The Creator

4. Doja Cat

5. Kanye West

and like those are def 5 of my favs, those first three especially are my top 3. But I am less sure what this year's artists are gonna be, cause like halfway through the year I ignored all my playlists and dove headfirst into a new one with artists like The Smiths, TV Girl, Nirvana, Radiohead, Green Day, Deftones, etc. 
Tyler The Creator is probably still high up cause he released The Estate Sale which is pretty much the deluxe version of his last album CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST. So I listened to quite a bit of that, and then a lot of his first and third albums GOBLIN and CHERRY BOMB. Doja Cat must be high up because of her releasing her new album Scarlet this September, so I think I hit that pretty hard. Coldplay is probably up there as well just 'cause they're my favorite. I think Joji and Kanye might potentially drop out of the top 5 (though I'm surprised Joji was #1 last year. He'd probably be higher this year cause I've been listening to him a shit ton this past week but they don't collect stats from Nov-Dec).

I think my guesses for the new artists to jump into the top 5 are Flying Lotus and The Smiths. Flying Lotus is more of a producer(?), so a lot of his stuff is more instrumentals and he'll feature artists for the vocals. His shits suuuuuper good, I'm obsessed with the soundtrack he made for a lil' samurai anime called Yasuke (i never finished watching it rip, gotta go back) and I listened to it so hard during the end of 2022/early 2023 that he skyrocketed in my top listened artists. From what I recall I listened to him a decent amount this year (but like no more than Joji or Tyler I think?), so I wouldn't be surprised or upset to see him get up there.
The Smiths I dove into really hard (the most out of the different batch of artists I shifted to in this second half of the year), but in retrospect a decent chunk of that was during this November so I could be wrong. But I listened to The Queen is Dead a good chunk, and in November I super grinded their compilation Hateful of Hollow.

I'm largely excited just cause I'm not fully sure what to expect. As for my top 5 songs, I'm even less sure honestly. Last year's were a hell of a grab-bag, and mostly the result of leaving one song on loop for an extended period of time.

my top 5 songs last year were

1. Laura Plays The Piano by Akira Yamaoka from the Silent Hill 2 soundtrack (prob my fav from it)

2. Addiction by Doja Cat on her album Hot Pink

3. Fictional Animals by NothinButLag+FrankJavCee

4. It Was A Good Day by Ice Cube (aka manifesting)

5. Waterfall by Toby Fox (my fav Undertale song)

I'm pretty happy with this batch honestly, as strange as it is.


I started to type this crazy long list of my favorite songs this year, but I'm just gonna put this playlist here cause it's almost 200 songs
