Entertainment: When does Spotify Wrapped 2021 come out? Latest release date news and when it stops tracking most played stats

Race: Verstappen holds off Hamilton to win thriller

  Race: Verstappen holds off Hamilton to win thriller Max Verstappen kept a charging Lewis Hamilton behind to hold on for a crucial win in an absorbing, topsy-turvy United States GP in Austin.The two title rivals finished only a second apart in an engrossing race, which saw both of them lead at different times, with split strategies leading to a thrilling conclusion on Sunday.

The annual Spotify Wrapped feature gives us a change to reflect on what we’ve listened to as each year comes to an end.

As well as offering an insight into the songs, artists and podcasts people around the world have consumed throughout the year, the feature provides you with a deep dive into your own habits.

The results, as you have no doubt seen on social media, are always illuminating and, occasionally, ever so slightly embarrassing – here’s what we know about when this year’s edition will come out.

When will Spotify Wrapped 2021 come out?

Last year, the overall Spotify Wrapped stats went live on 1 December, with the personalised feature arriving a day later.

Comparison of Mo Salah's 2017/18 stats to 2007/08 Cristiano Ronaldo is simply fascinating

  Comparison of Mo Salah's 2017/18 stats to 2007/08 Cristiano Ronaldo is simply fascinating Ronaldo and Salah are two of the Premier League's greatest ever playersThere, we said it, but surely there isn't much of a debate anymore with Salah's latest hot-streak simply confirming that he's one of the most talented footballers to ever play in the division.

This was slightly earlier than the the 2019 version, which arrived on 5 December, while in 2018 it was on 4 December.

It’s therefore safe to assume that it will drop at some point in the first week of December again. Spotify tends not to confirm a release date in advance, although it has indicated that it will come “soon”.

The platform reportedly emailed listeners on Monday 8 November telling them to “get ready” for the 2021 edition, explaining: “It’s almost that time of year again, 2021 Wrapped is coming soon!”

On the official Wrapped site it currently says simply: “Wrapped is a deep dive into the artists, songs, and podcasts that defined your 2021.

“The more you listen, the better your Wrapped will be when we launch later this year.”

In the meantime, the streaming platform gives you the chance to revisit last year’s edition here.

When does Spotify Wrapped stop tracking?

If you wanted to frantically try and game your Spotify Wrapped data by giving it a fragile veneer of credibility, then sadly you’re out of luck.

The streaming service has previously acknowledged that it stops tracking your listening habits by November, with the data covering 1 January to 31 October, so this year’s research has been completed.

What does Spotify Wrapped tell you?

Last year, as well as your top five songs and artists, Spotify told you which genres you listened to the most, how many new artists you discovered and how long you listened for.

It also revealed if there were any songs you discovered long before anyone else, and made you do a mini quiz to see if you can guess your own listening habits.

Spotify signed off by saying: “Thanks for spending all 67 months of 2020 with us.”

Taylor Swift beat two records on the Spotify Streaming Platform Friday, November 12th. The American singer became the most streamy female artist in one day, and the reorganized version of "Red" became the most streamed female album in a day. An "historic day" according to Spotify.

Whether you choose to share the data with the world on social media depends, of course, on how embarrassing your music taste is (admit it, it’s very embarassing).

Famous women who were demonized by the media .
Despite the recent progress in gender equality, sexism in media coverage of powerful women is woefully untamed. Female celebrities and politicians have their appearances scrutinized and criticized exponentially more than men in the same position. Their appearance is tied to their likeability and eligibility for positions of power. Every step is carefully observed, the paparazzi are just waiting to capture the fall. Meghan Markle became one of the most talked-about women of the decade after marrying Prince Harry. Nasty tabloid stories and online trolling were two major factors that drove the couple to exit the royal family and attempt to live a quieter life. Almost two years after "Megxit," a report by the platform Bot Sentinel has revealed that a number of inauthentic Twitter accounts were involved in a coordinated effort to attack the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. They found that 83 troll accounts were responsible for "approximately 70% of the original and derivative hate content targeting Harry and Meghan." They were able to link many of the accounts to each other proving that it was a planned attack. The accounts in question were responsible for starting false rumors and sharing deceptively edited photos and videos. The 83 accounts they analyzed had a potential reach of 17 million users. The conclusion was that the majority of the hate generated on Twitter towards Meghan Markle was not organic. It was cunningly created and dispersed by a small, organized group. The world is slowly starting to see through the character assassinations that put these women's livelihoods at risk and try to scare them out of having a voice. Click through this gallery to see which other famous females suffered at the hands of the media, and how.
