Additionally, I found another case in my recent feed for the song "Gold Status" by Phuketian. Like the previous two, I never knew of this song before, but it somehow was saved and interrupted my current music feed. Additionally, what is a strange aspect to note is that all three artists that presented this problem demonstrate the same listener bases of Dallas, Buffalo, Chicago, Atlanta, and New York City. This is shown in the three attached screenshots. It seems increasingly likely that some form of data infiltration is occurring, targeting audiences for reasons I cannot explain. Spotify, this is confusing as heck.
I have the same problem. In my case, i listen to spotify alot and every day i get disrupted by this random songs. They start play at random times and if i switch back to my song it goes back to this random track again after 2 sec. And it keeps adding this songs to my song library.
If i keep turning songs off, i got kicked out of spotify.
I have this issue for some time and its realy annoying. I have changed passwords to spotify and facebook and it seems like have no impact on this matter.
I would love to see these artists banned or just fix this nonsense.
Update: I also changed my password and removed all devices. After I logged in with my new password, I have not been interuped with "Island Vibes" by DJ Puppet or "Hustle Hard" by The Real Puppet Gang. This really smacks of something nefarious and I am also concerned about what would appear to be a breach in security (if someone got into our accounts and an unauthorized user is responsible for the music interruptions). This potentially means whoever the unauthorized user is had access to sensitive account information.
Yeah I'm fairly certain this is some fraudulent abuse of leaked account information from a data breach, I suggest you all update your passwords, this is much bigger than I first thought it was which means that clearly we need to be asking questions to the "artists" that appear to be paying for this exploit to boost their audience spread.
I just posted about this kind of thing happening to my account too here
My issue is that it isn't just one or two songs it's a bunch of new and different songs. When you google the album names or artist, nothing comes up, so they're obviously fake. Even the album covers and song titles on these fake albums are super generic. I've checked the about page on all of the artist and none of them have bios and they all have the cities under the "Where People Listen" page - Dallas, London, Chicago, Amsterdam and New York City or Sydney. Songs only get added to my Recently Played list as soon as I stop using Spotify, so I've never had my playback interrupted, it just seems to add when I'm not using it.
I've changed passwords, deactivated devices twice now and it still happens.
This is happening to me as well!! I can't play a song without it being interrupted by a random artist of stuff I'm not interested in at all. And if I am playing nothing but Spotify is open it starts playing randomly which is CREEPY. I've done all the steps, changed my passwords, etc. Literally just happened again as I wrote this. Artist name this time "Morton Wellcraft" and "FlowGirls"?? But they all look similar in style when you look at the album artwork. Also this one I attached the screenshot of. I'm not paying for this garbage anymore if this doesn't get fixed.
If you created your account using Facebook, that isn't the right password to change. You need to change the actual account password. Then, sign out of Spotify on all devices in settings, and sign yourself back in. The problem went away for me after that.
