My Question or Issue

I just got this phone, upgrading from the galaxy s7. I can't change the music using any controller when the phone is locked. I have never had an issue with this before. My headphones, the actual phone, my watch and even my car can't change the music when the phone is closed. Its a huge hassel to unlock my phone just to change the song when I'm driving, or on a walk. 

 

I have seen some similar issues and they suggested uninstalling Spotify and trying again, it doesn't work for me. I have made sure Spotify has all permissions allowed and even dug through my settings to debunk this. If I use Google Play Music, I don't have this issue.
