So, this has happened to me, with multiple playlists, both private and public, for some time now. Biggest problem one was one that I use as overnight music for my kids, starts playing this techno style electronic music, which is not soothing at all and is keeping them awake instead of helping them sleep. I removed the entries MANY times, and they continue to reappear. I went through my other playlists and found similar entries there as well, and removed them. Now, I have blocked the artist all together. Not that I mind his style of music, as, in the right venue and time, it would be just fine by me. It is more about the fact that it is being forceably added to my playlists, which I cannot allow or tolerate. Also, as the OP indicated, I was apparently following the artist, though I have never heard of this artist and have never chosen to follow them.
Before you say it, yes I have gone through all of the secure my account procedures and yes, it still persisted after that. I am not sure what kind of bug or exploit is being used to accomplish this, but it needs to be addressed and fixed immediately.
Re: Unknown songs from the same artist being added to my playlist?
I still think is not a glitch and someone is hacking into spotify. It is such a rare artist and the fact that every day I keep seeing people with the same problem over and over again is very strange.
I was able to fix it, i'm not sure if it's due to the fact that I change passwords from EEEVERYWHERE (facebook, mail, spotify, eveything I could think of) or if spotify did actually block the artist for me ( I actually blocked it myself but I still appeared )
Today I received an email from spotify warning that someone from Russia gained access to my account. After all the password changing and etc, I realized that several songs from this A.K. were added to my playlists. And there isn't a easy way to report directly from A.K. page to Spotify, the options given don't include fake accounts...
This has been happening to my account for a couple of weeks, I kept deleting songs and the next day they would end up right back in all of my playlists. When I went to the gym a bunch of other songs of instrumentals were in my queue that I had never heard of. These songs are awful! Tonight I went to listen to Spotify on my phone and it said it was listening on another P.C. when I asked my boyfriend if he was using it he said no. I proceeded to play the music on my phone and kick them off, only to have the song change and then be kicked off. I logged out of all devices, made sure there were no third party devices with access, and changed my password. I have loved using Spotify premium, however if this continues after taking those necessary steps I will be switching to Apple Music.
