View your YouTube Music Recap

Your yearly and seasonal Recaps include personalized playlists and stats that bring together your top songs, artists, and more from the past year and season.

Recaps are made just for you, based on your music listening history across YouTube platforms. Your Recap gets updated every time a new yearly or seasonal Recap is available. You can always save your previous stats and playlists.

To get future Recap playlists and stats, including your End-of-Year Recap, all you have to do is keep listening to music on YouTube.
