I think the easiest way to fix this is to allow the users interact with the playlist.

Does anyone know if Spotify is going to do anything to fix the problem? I always look forward to this playlist and this is a big disappointment!!

I'm also having this issue. The Top 5 songs and artists from the recap are accurate, but those songs don't even appear in the Top 100 playlist. The Top 100 playlist has artists I listen to, but the songs they chose are ones I've never listened to, or listen to much less often than songs that do not appear on the playlist.


Also, I'm getting the bug I've seen others complain about that half of my Tastebreakers playlist is country music, while that is perhaps my least-listened genre.

I think something must be wrong with their algorithm because I'm experiencing the same thing. I know it's not that big of a deal, but I look forward to this all year! How can it possibly be that a French lesson I listened to once while driving to school is in my Top 100? How does that make sense when my top artists aren't even in the list? Honestly I think there are only 5 or 6 songs in the list that I listened to more than 10 times. I'm so bummed :(

 

Spotify, please fix this!!

Same here, and I am SO upset. I've been texting my bff the past week, anxiously awaiting the release of this playlist. I was so upset to see that MAYBE 3/100 songs actually belong in my top 100 played songs. 

 

Spotify - if you are reading this, is there a way we can reach out to you to get this corrected please?! 

 

Thank you so much.

Same issue here. My wrapped top five seems pretty accurate, but three of the songs aren’t even on my 2018 playlist, let alone other songs that are missing that I know I listened to a **bleep** of a lot.

 

Pretty disappointed considering how much I loved the 2016 and 2017 playlists, even though I know my 2017 playlist was missing a song.

I have got the same problem, this also happend in 2017 when I thought there was a lot other music I was listing much more. How is that possible?

I've got the same problem. Luckily I have Last.FM that also has all the data. Here's what I found

 

  • From my top 10 tracks last year on Last.Fm, only 6 came back in the Spotify list. The entire actual top 3 tracks were missing completely from the Spotify list.
  • My top artist was by a mile a hardcore punk bank, but instead Spotify went for Everything Everything, probably because its mainstream and set up for me to 'thank' them, and the punk band wasn't
  • Only 29% from my Spotify top 100 list, also returns in my Last.FM (actual) top 150 list on Last.FM (I decided to go for my top 150 because Spotify only includes 3 songs from one album, yet shockingly low results)
  • I have 1 song that was played by someone once on a party in februari, made the list, from a genre and artist that I otherwise NEVER listen to. 
  • 5 songs that I played twice this year
  • 11 songs that I played 3 times this year
  • Starship - We Built This City comes back on every year list for me, while actually only listened to 3 or 4 times that year (not even close to making the top 150 for each year).
  • Apparently I only listened to 41k minutes of music (about 2 hr a day), while working from home and having Spotify on atleast 6 hours a day. If I calculate the average song length with data from minutes devided by the number of scrobbles from Last.FM, it would come to 2:45 songs. Impossible. 

 

I knew last years it was a bit off, but most of it was accurate. This year over 70% is off, giving me a list with songs I barely know or 3 tracks from the same album I only listened to a couple of times. Such a let down.

According to Spotify Wrapped my most listened to  artist was KUN, which is a Chinese artist that I’ve never heard of. All of the other listed artists made sense, as I’m fans of them. I wonder if Spotify’s tracking system got hacked.
