Congratulations on getting to the end of another year, and I hope you've been enjoying the winter break! I am very proud to share one last batch of playlists for your enjoyment. It's my pleasure to work with the rest of our staff in bringing you a variety of themes and genres every month. As well, we'd love to receive any feedback addressed to the social media handles at the bottom of this post. If you're looking for a holiday playlist to enjoy for the remainder of your winter break, make sure to check out "Under the Mistletoe" from our last playlist post "Notes of November" or at the Project Metropolis Spotify profile. Happy listening!

Here are our selections for December:

'21 wrapped

Another year means new music to dive into and many, many viral hits. Here is a selection of the mega-hits from 2021 so that you can relive the most popular music moments of the year, along with fresh finds from popular artists. (Note: the person who made this playlist envies anyone who scored tickets to Sour Tour.)

Vitamin K2

To go with our theme of introducing music in different languages, here is the second edition of Vitamin K. I've tried my best to include lesser-known K-pop songs so that you can find new favourites to stream!


As part of our journey to introduce a variety of genres, here is an EDM-heavy playlist perfect for having an impromptu dance party in your room, or celebrate with during the break. (:waba: shoutout!)


Adding to another series, here is another OST playlist I've created by incorporating familiar sounds from my childhood. If you're a Marvel, Disney, or an old-timey movie fan, make sure to check this out! (You could also rely on this playlist to get you through hard work on culminatings!)


As a bonus because your resident playlist maker was not satisfied with one K-pop playlist, here are some favourite title tracks and b-sides of the year. On a personal note, I heard many of these songs bouncing off streets when I visited South Korea, so this year in k-pop will definitely be a memorable one. I recommend this selection if you want to discover hits from a variety of artists and catch up on anything you might have missed!

If you have any recommendations or requests for next month's playlists, please DM Celine on Discord (celine_celestium#4003) or Instagram (@celine_celestium).
