Then, for each song, n-GEN pulls six specific traits from Spotify's API: popularity, danceability, energy, mood, acousticness, and wordiness.

Here's what each trait means:

Popularity: This measures how well-known a song is, based on factors like the number of plays it has received and how recently those plays occurred. A popularity score of 100 indicates that the song is very well-known and has been played frequently, while a score of 0 suggests that the song is lesser-known.

Danceability: This describes how suitable a song is for dancing, based on factors like tempo, rhythm stability, beat strength, and overall regularity. A danceability score of 100 indicates that the song is very danceable, while a score of 0 suggests that it is not very danceable.

Energy: This measures how intense and active a song feels, based on factors like tempo, loudness, and noise level. An energy score of 100 indicates that the song feels very energetic, while a score of 0 suggests that it feels more mellow.

Mood: This measures the emotional tone of a song, based on factors like the melody, harmony, and lyrics. A mood score of 100 indicates that the song sounds very positive (e.g. happy, cheerful, euphoric), while a score of 0 suggests that it sounds more negative (e.g. sad, depressed, angry).

Acousticness: This measures how acoustic a song sounds, based on factors like the presence of acoustic instruments and the absence of electronic instruments. An acousticness score of 100 indicates that the song sounds very acoustic, while a score of 0 suggests that it sounds less acoustic.

Wordiness: This detects the presence of spoken words in a song. The more exclusively speech-like the recording (e.g. talk show, audio book, poetry), the closer to 100 the attribute value. Values above 66 describe tracks that are probably made entirely of spoken words. Values between 33 and 66 describe tracks that may contain both music and speech, either in sections or layered, including such cases as rap music. Values below 33 most likely represent music and other non-speech-like tracks.

Once n-GEN has analyzed your listening history and identified the songs you've listened to the most, it uses these six traits to create a unique visual representation of your musical tastes. The resulting chart shows your preferences for each trait, with different colors representing different levels of popularity, danceability, energy, mood, acousticness, and wordiness.
