I can't anymore last week you guys put mutard and migos new song/music video in my new releases when I don't follow either and i have most of the migos songs disliked.

I thought release radar and discover weekly we're based on my music and it didn't advertise pop songs that I clearly don't like. I would like to say this doesn't happen very often but this is the 2nd or 3rd you guys put a song in there that clearly is an ad and I can't dislike the song to get rid of it.

Hello, 

I am sorry you're having this problem.

''Release Radar" is just new music being released regardless of if you've disliked their songs. 

To not hear any songs by Migos, you can just block them. 

Steps to blocking an artist:

  • go to the artist's page 
  • click on the three dots in the top right corner
  • then click "Don't play this artist"

If you follow these steps correctly you should no longer hear any songs from them.

 

Please accept as a solution if this helped.

Hi @Auzthewizard

 

Thanks for coming to the Community.

 

The difference between Release Radar and other recommendation playlists is that it's not only based on the music you listen to but the artists you follow.

 

To improve your experience with recommendations, I suggest you to start following the artists you love, doing that, the Release Radar will become more personal.

 

Have a great day!

Hey @Auzthewizard.

 

Thanks for reaching out to us about this.

 

We just wanted to confirm that Spotify does not promote any artists in your Made For You playlists, which include your Daily Mixes and Release Radar. 

 

The more you listen, the more these playlists will represent your music tastes more accurately. If there are any particular artists or songs that appear in those playlists which you would not like to see again, you can just go to the Remove button (🚫), which will hide either the song or artist from the respective playlist.

 

Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any other questions.

Hey there again that's my problem is you put songs in my playlists that I can't dislike like this migos song where this whole thing began if you originally gave me the option to dislike and get it out of my playlists I wouldn't have accused you for ads but the fact that the song is nothing like anything I listen to and I couldn't dislike leads me to believe you guys were paid to promote a song I had this happen before with other pop artists. Please add a block artists to Canada asap it's much needed

You can always choose not to listen to Release Radar and just make your own playlist with the music you like ;)

I did that as well and now I don't hear all those mumble rappers anymore and I love it!
