The wait is finally over, the moment everyone has been anticipating for months, Spotify Wrapped is finally here! A way to end the year, be able to see how much your taste changes in just 12 months and see how addicted some of us are to our favorite music, or should I say what artist we are addicted to. Being able to see how much time we’ve dedicated in one year to our obsession with music.

Some background info about Spotify Wrapp, it was launched in 2016 which from a marketing aspect was a great decision to draw in more customers. Not to mention it had pushed other platforms to create their version of the Wrapp, essentially making Spotify a trendsetter. That’s not all, Spotify has continuously given us more and more every year when it comes to the Wrapp. Constantly updating it and making it more personal and interactive for the listeners each year. This year they statistics for the artists to see their monthly listener data and general audience, along with adding videos from artists saying thanks and telling fans how much they appreciate them for listening.

With over 574 million users on Spotify, there are over 574 million unique Spotify Wrapps. Showing users their favorite artists and songs throughout the years and even revealing some people’s guilty pleasures too. Music is personal for everyone and can reveal a lot about a person. It tends to be a much bigger part of people’s lives than one might think, being able to show how people use music to cope and help with mental health. For some being able to pop on headphones is all a person needs to be in a better mood, while for others it’s listening to music and processing what’s going on in their lives. That is what has become the most interesting part of the Wrapp, with everyone sharing and posting their Wrapps it has become a focal point in wrapping up the year. 

It’s an interesting concept when you think about it, being able to see every high and low throughout your year by just looking at your music. While also being able to reminisce on old memories that a certain song would bring up. Then others spent their entire year curating a perfect Spotify Wrapp to post on socials. Spotify Wrapped has changed our society when it comes to music streaming platforms and deciding if it was a change for better or for worse, well that’s up to you.

About the Contributor
Aaliyah Villela, Sports Reporter
As school begins and the 2023 and 2024 school year start, there are many seniors that are all around campus. One senior in particular who is amazing to be around is Aaliyah Villela. Aaliyah is a force to be reckoned with. She is the student council secretary and she is now also the lifestyle section editor. Even though Aaliyah has some big responsibilities, she never lets the fun side of her down. Always finding the humor in things and making sure that everyone is having fun is what Aaliyah loves to do Being the last year of high school for Aaliyah, she is excited about what comes next. However, with the feeling of excitement comes a hard reality check that your years of being a teenager are over. “Honestly, I’m relieved but I’m also sad. I’m finally done with high school, but it also feels like freshman year COVID was a week ago.” Aaliyah’s freshman year of high school was during the pandemic and during the online learning mandates. “ It’s crazy to think about how I stared in my bedroom and now I’m almost done with high school in like one hundred and something days.” During Aaliyah’s years in high school, she has accomplished many things. However, one thing that she was proud of accomplishing was going out there talking to people, and making new friends. “Honestly one thing that I am proud of doing, is actually getting out there and talking to people. For example, in freshman year, I didn't talk to anyone. I maybe had 4 friends and they were from middle school. Now I’m a student body secretary, I talk to everyone, and people come and talk to me,” Aaliyah says, “ It’s really nice to just be out there.”  As the student body secretary, Aaliyah has a lot of responsibilities in that position. “ It’s interesting, Joining student council at first I definitely had impostor syndrome. I did not think I belonged whatsoever, especially because all my friends who were in student council at the time were there way longer than me. And then just being in there on the executive board is a little stressful, but also I’m just very proud of myself for how far I have come.” Throughout the many years of Aaliyah’s high school career, she has come to like and dislike a lot of her high school experiences. However, one of Aaliyah’s favorite memories in High School would have to be the Student Council state meeting. For those who don’t know, Sudnets councils around the whole state of Arizona get together for a weekend and represent their school spirit. “One favorite memory from high school would have to be last year, Student Council. We went to state and it was a three-day trip, where the Agua Fria student council rented an Airbnb.” Aaliyah said, “ It felt like a family, it honestly felt like a cliche family college experience, where you just bond with your friends. It was a lot of us cooking dinner together, hosting movie nights, and playing football in the backyard. It was just a lot of getting along together and being closer than ever.” The outside school life of Aaliyah Villela is hanging out with her close friends and just enjoying life. Though a lot of her time gets used up for student council events, she still finds ways to take care of herself and enjoy her life. “ My life used to revolve around my job, but then I quit. So now it’s a lot of just hanging out with my friends, partially STUCO. I like to thrift a lot, I love doing it with my friends. I don’t really do sports, well not anymore at least.” Miss Villela has a goal of becoming a sports presenter as her further career. “ I want to be a presenter for sports.” Aaliyah said with an adoring tone as she spoke, “ A big goal of mine when I was younger was to be known, as cliche as it sounds. That goal was just to be known, I want as many people as possible to know who I am and what I did in my life, and just be remembered by many people not just my family and friends. So it was always a big dream of mine to just be famous or be associated with someone. That is a really big thing, but also sports are a really big part and I would love to incorporate that with my goals in life.” A few facts about Aaliyah are that she loves the color dark blue because it reminds her of the night sky and space, she loves space. Her favorite season is fall, “It has a nice atmosphere and the colors are amazing.” Aaliyah states with a calm state of mind look on her face. “ Not to mention it has a favorite holiday… Halloween! It's just the vibe and the energy, it’s the best time of the year in my eyes.”   Aaliyah Villela is a girl with passion and grit. She knows what she wants to do and goes for it without hesitation. Known for being the Student Council secretary and an amazing person. In order for you to understand how much of an incredible person she is, you’re just going to have to meet her.
