We all have that one song we listened to nonstop for a whole month. And we can't hide it -- at least not from Spotify.
The music-streaming site on Monday launched its Year In Music 2015, a personalized end-of-year review that will tell you everything you wanted to know -- or would rather not remember -- about your musical taste.
A Spotify tradition since 2012, the annual recap lists your top songs, artists and genres, as well as your top artists by season and the total minutes of music you've listened to, among other stats.
To review your own Year In Music, pull up spotify.com/2015, select “Get Your Year In Music," and sign in to your Spotify account.

The Year In Music also gives users the opportunity to create a customized playlist that Spotify thinks you'll enjoy based on your past listening preferences. To activate the playlist, simply click on "Play it forward" from the review's sidebar menu.
Earlier this month, Spotify also released a list of global music trends in 2015. Drake was the artist of the year, with a whopping 1.8 billion streams, while Rihanna was the top female artist, with 1 billion streams.
