The most wonderful time of the year is finally upon us. Music lovers all over the world have been handed the greatest gift any music app can offer, fully wrapped and ready to go. It is, of course, the time of year when everyone can finally share their Spotify Wrapped – courtesy of Spotify itself.

In the upcoming days, everyone and their mother will be sharing their Spotify wrapped, filled with their favorite artists and Taylor Swift – that’s right, we know Midnights is in your year wrap-up. While the entire world may be excitedly checking their top five songs of 2022, some may be wondering if last year’s Spotify Wrapped may be accessed – perhaps to compare your past faves to this year’s list, or just for nostalgia purposes. After all, who wouldn’t like to see their music progression from the last five years?

But can you watch previous years’ Spotify Wrapped?

Long story short, yes, you can access Spotify Wrapped from 2016 onward, but with a catch. While you can access all the playlists from previous Spotify Wrapped moments, the stories from those years are inherently all gone. Regardless, it’s the playlists that truly count, and you can still find them with a simple trick.

While you access your yearly wrap-up, Spotify allows you to save a playlist with your 100 most listened-to tunes from that year on to your library. Those playlists will remain in your library, available to be accessed anytime and anywhere. However, if you were one of the people whose small letters completely missed your sight, worry not. There is still a way to access those playlists, as long as you were an active user of Spotify. The links below will take you to your web browser, giving you access to the respective year’s Spotify Wrapped.

Each page will also include several playlists with each year’s hits, making this functionality absolutely perfect if you want to look back to Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” from 2016, or return to Bad Bunny’s 2022 hit, “Tití me preguntó.” Talk about reminiscing about the past in the grooviest possible way, while keeping in touch with this year’s greatest musicians.

There you have it. Unfortunately, Spotify no longer allows you to access the stories, but that’s just a small price to pay for having the coolest playlists on the planet that you can listen to over and over again – even if we know you’ll just be listening to The Weeknd’s “Dawn FM” on repeat.
