Songs People in Your City Are Listening to

Since Spotify has this annual tradition of curating the top songs that users have played throughout the year, and presenting it in a "Best Of" collection format, they have transformed the data they have collected into an interactive map which shows you which songs are the most played songs in different cities around the world. They call it Wrapped Mapped.

Each year, Spotify summarizes users' listening activity which they can share with other people. Users can also check to see if their favorite songs and artists have made it onto the most streamed list on Spotify.

With Wrapped Mapped, the idea is that the music we listen to can sometimes be shaped by the communities where we belong. This map enables users to check what music trends are happening in places outside of their local communities. Perhaps, they might find other people who share the same music interests in the other side of the world. Thus, allowing them to become connected through their love of a particular song or artist.

Not all cities are included on the map. Spotify lists the top five songs in most of the largest cities in the US, and for other parts of the world, they simply collate data for whole countries.

For example, in Los Angeles, Eslabon Armado and Peso Pluma's Ella Baila Sola tops the list with SZA's Kill Bill closely following. On the other hand, the UK has Dave and Central Cee's Sprinter at the number one spot, while Miley Cyrus' Flowers comes in second. It may not be an exhaustive list, but it's a good start if Spotify is planning to make it an annual thing as well. It's also a fun way to browse new music or to see which songs and artists were the most streamed in various parts of the world. -via Google Maps Mania

I agree. I have found though, that there's a neat workaround for some sites. I open them on incognito, and for some reason, I gain access to the whole article. Some sites are just too strict though, and even that trick doesn't work.

I'm real tired of these sites that make you 'log in' or 'subscribe' in order to look at their articles. I have better things to do than have to go through their restrictions in order to view their articles. They are not worth the effort, IMO.
