How does Spotify Wrapped work anyway?
According to a Reddit user, there are a number of different ways your listening habits are logged by Spotify. Users will need to listen to a song for more than 30 seconds for it to count in the Spotify song rankings. Your tops are calculated by the number of times it is played, rather than for long.
Your total listening time on Spotify also includes listening to podcasts, so if you fall asleep listening to Saving Grace, you’ve racked up some hefty listening minutes. Your top artists are also calculated by how many times their songs have been played rather than the total listening time.
