My Question or Issue

During summer my Spotify account 'Dusmania' was hacked, causing tracks from Dan Richard and Kosso to frequently play. At the time I wasn't using Spotify much, and I thought it was a mere glitch, but when I noticed my 'rearranged' library in Fall, I took measures and changed my password which solved the issue.

 

The main issue I'm facing now is that my listening history has been completely demolished. and I can't seem to find a way to fix/clear it. This 'Kosso - Pak Koh' song has been played using my account for over 18 hours, making it my number 1 song of the Decade in Spotify Wrapped. This obviously made furiously.

 

I would be very grateful if my listening history of the time around summer, when these artists I mentioned were frequently being played, could be erased from my account's history.

 

I'd really appreciate any help you can provide.

According to this Spotify Answer

My 2019 Wrapped or playlist is wrong. Can you change it?
