Which artist did Sacramento listen to the most in 2023? Spotify reveals top tracks, genres

When you’re working out, walking your dog or driving in the car, who’s your go-to music artist?

Chances are that person is Sacramento’s favorite too.

On Wednesday, Spotify released its annual Wrapped, a round-up of the top artists, songs, albums and podcasts, for more than 574 million listeners.

Each year, users of the digital streaming service get an interactive summary of who they’ve listened to most, what tracks were on repeat and how many minutes they’ve streamed songs and podcasts over the past 12 months.

“Musically, 2023 was defined by the return of major female pop stars, sonic diversity that topped the charts and a global music atmosphere that gave rise to powerful genres,” Spotify said on its website.
