It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Christmas trees are going up, the decorations are out and artists are sharing their Spotify “Wrapped” results. 

Earlier this week, the streaming service released its annual "Wrapped" insights, which explore the top performers of the year and decade. Ariana Grande, Lizzo and John Mayer are among the artists who've unwrapped their own Spotify presents early. And they’re thrilled and surprised with their gifts.    

“Not usually a nut for posting numbers, but this one is special,” writes John Mayer in an Instagram post. “Something beautiful happened this year, and I felt it every night, on every stage. You have all brought so much depth to these songs.” Mayer has reason to be happy. More than 54 million people played his songs, totaling more than a billion streams in 2019 alone.

Lizzo managed 1.1 billion streams. “You mean to tell me there are at least 61.6 million lizzbians out there??? What a year, thank Spotify,” she wrote.   

Based on more than 248 million users' listening habits around the world, Drake took the prize as Spotify's most-streamed artist of the decade, while Post Malone was crowned most-streamed artist of the year.
