30 Red Flags In Your Crush's Spotify Wrapped That Will Make You Glad You're Single

Sure, you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but Spotify Wrapped is a different beast entirely. Like old folks always say, music is a window into the soul or some bullshit like that. So, now is the perfect opportunity to stalk your crushes, situationships, and not-so-regrettable hook-ups to gather all the info you need to safeguard your heart. 

According to Spotify, listeners created over 200,000 “break-up” playlists this year. Recognizing these red flags might just save you from streaming them on Valentine’s Day 2024. I mean, I wouldn’t wish “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” on my worst enemy. 

Remember, EDM is not a phase! These are grown people with terrible taste! Trust them when they show this very embarassing side of themselves. Godspeed.
