Someone already suggested that solution in other thread and it works for a while. But after some days, sometimes hours the problem returns.

Ok, I tried that solution by setting my phone to Secure Startup (Note 9) where you have to enter your password before the phone starts up, and what do you know... it seems to work. After a week of rebooting, Spotify retains the SD storage and does not revert back to internal. It's not a permanent nor ideal solution though since other apps don't experience this with normal start up but it'll do for now while I hope Spotify can find what the issue is and fix it.
