Guess what world: I’m an Apple Music user and I don’t care who knows it. As Jim Carrey says in Liar Liar — whilst quoting a little book called The Bible, I believe — “the truth shall set you free!” And no longer will I hid in the internet shadows ashamed of my choice of music streaming service. I’m an Apple Music user and I’m proud of it, dammit. Okay, “proud” is definitely a strong word, considering I’m not even that big of a music guy, more like “accepting”: I’m accepting of the fact that I’m an Apple Music guy. Whoop-dee-doo, Basil.
But why? How did this happen to me? Where did it all go wrong? Folks, I am a simple man. I went to college (Rutgers University, shout out, we’re coming for that ass this weekend, Penn State) with the goal of finding a job that didn’t make me dread the following morning. As long as I wake up each day *not* totally bummed out about the day ahead, I feel like I’m doing alright. I’m a modest man and I live within my means. If the cellphone I use — which is an iPhone 8, by the way, I believe we’re now up to the iPhone 12 — gives me a music streaming service, I’m going to use it. After all, it’s right there. The next thing you know, it became a habit, a way of life, now here I am, five or so years into my Apple Music career. Life comes at you fast I suppose.
Luckily, though, realizing their loyal users were out fighting a battle they themselves created, Apple Music has essentially copied Spotify’s ultra-popular year-end “Wrapped” feature by giving users a ’20 Replay: a breakdown of their most listened to songs, artists, etc. And since you and I, my Apple Music brethren, are in the war together, I figured I’d do right by our people and share a how-to guide of how to find your own personal Apple Music ’20 Replay.
While you can view your Replay playlists in the Apple Music “Listen Now” tab, you have to visit the Apple Music website for the full details.
To find your Apple Music Replay 2020 year-in-review, simply head to replay.music.apple.com in Safari on your device. Here, you’ll be presented with all of the details on your Apple Music listening habits throughout the year.
Apple Music Replay shows users their total listening time for the year, alongside a playlist of your top 100 songs of the year, your top artists, and your top albums. You can also add your Replay 2020 playlist to your Apple Music library, as well as playlists for prior years dating back to 2015 as well. [via 9to5mac]
See you on the battlefield, soldier.
