Since getting an Instagram-friendly update in 2019 Spotify Wrapped has become a yearly highlight for many music fans 

Spotify’s mysterious post has left music fans reeling with excitement and frantically searching for more information on when Wrapped will be released. 

Spotify first launched the ‘Year in Music’ playlist feature in 2015 before following up with the first-ever Spotify Wrapped in 2016 as an emailed list of users’ top songs. 

However, it wasn’t until 2019 that the company first launched the Instagram-friendly format that we all recognise today.

Yet since its launch there has been no consistent date for the feature’s annual release, leaving fans speculating wildly about a potential date. 

Some commenters have suggested that Spotify wrapped may even drop today as it has dropped on Wednesdays for the last few years

Some fans have suggested that the yearly wrap-up might even be released today. 

‘Sounds like either today (wednesday) or friday’, speculated one fan in a post on X. 

‘Come on Spotify wrapped I know you’re gonna drop today’, wrote another.

Some fans have even dug into the history of Spotify Wrapped to try and find any trends in the date of release.

For the last three years, Spotify Wrapped has been released on a Wednesday afternoon, sparking suggestions that it might be released later today. 

One commenter suggested: ‘Maybe we get spotify wrapped today? It’s been on wednesday the last couple of years apparently’.

However, in the wake of Spotify’s cryptic post, social media speculation has run wild with a number of different suggestions emerging. 

One popular theory is that Wrapped will be dropping on Friday to coincide with the first day of December. 

Several commenters excitedly pointed out that the 2021 Spotify Wrapped was released on 1 December and that the release has come in December every year before 2022.

They added that: ‘I’m nothing if not a girl who loves to be told statistics about herself’.
