My daily mix 1 and 6 is suggesting hip hop and I don't listen to that

My daily mix 1 and 6 is suggesting hip hop and I don't listen to that

I have never listened to hip hop or rap before on Spotify so why is it suggesting it. I want to fix it

Hi there,

 

Thanks for the post.

 

The Daily Mixes are automatically created, based on what you're listening to and what you might like. If you're not seeing enough recommendations for the genre you like, I'd suggest following more of your favorite artists and liking their songs/ albums. This will make the algorithm update with better recommendations.

 

Also make sure that your account is not logged in on a communal device, like a game console, TV or smart speaker, on which someone else can play music, since any music they play will influence your recommendations algorithm.

 

Hope this helps.

I am having this same issue. I have never listened to *any* of the artists on 5 out of 6 mixes. This is a sudden change as all of the mixes I have seen previously involved artists I've listened to before + similar.

The same thing is happening to me recently. I’m being suggested what I’d assume is popular rap/hip hop when I’ve never listened to the genre. I have always listened to electronica for years and have premium. I miss Pandora lol

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for your replies here and for the info shared.

 

It's always a good idea to secure your account in these cases to make sure everything is in order and no one is accessing your account without your consent. You can find out more on how to secure your account here.
 

On another note, we'd like to add some insights about this behavior. Keep in mind these playlists (e. g. Daily Mixes, Autoplay recommendations) are created by Spotify based on your recent listening activity. We suggest you make sure the Private Session is off, so the algorithm can gather enough info about your most recent listening activity. Also, make sure you're listening to music not only from other recommended playlists like Discover Weekly or Daily Mix, but through the Search option as well.


Keep in mind that if most of the music you listen to comes from your personalized playlists (like Discover Weekly, Daily Mix, Autoplay recommendations), the new suggested content won't update as often or be as accurate. It's worth mentioning that these playlists update regularly, so please give them some breaks, explore some new music, and check in the coming weeks and let us know how it goes.
 

Keep us in the loop!
