Dear spotify,

I don't even like Drake. It smells like sell-out. I have a premium account, so I want good personalized sugestions.

I feel your pain. I listen to 70s rock and still get suggestions for him.

I stopped listening to the US top 50 playlist because it has 24 Drake songs on it. WTH? Stop this Drake BS now please.

ESPERO QUE SPOTIFY YA QUITE EL EXCESO DE PUBLISIDAD DE DRAKE, YO IGUAL ME SIENTO MOLESTO TENIENDO CUENTA PREMIUM, A MI NO ME GUSTA ESA MUSICA Y TAMBIEN LO ESTABA VIENDO EN TODAS PARTES. ¿DONDE PUEDO REPORTAR EL PROBLEMA ?

I voted with my wallet and have cancelled my family Premium account because of this ridiculous marketing campaign and resulting exchange with customer support and refusal by Spotify to make amends.  There's a lot of other music streaming service out there at the same price point and feature parity and great tools to move your playlists around.

Advertising? It's f*ckin spamming!

I hate Drake as it is, I would have blocked him long ago (and all rap music) if that were only possible. Especially as a paying member you don't expect this.

 

Is there a music service that let's you block an artist or a genre? Does anyone know?

Because I would go there immediately.

And it's still happening. The album came out two weeks ago, yet is still the first New Release. Spotify is selling out.

I complained to Spotify’s customer service but they don’t seem to care and got a canned response.  I got a response saying it should be back to normal in a few days.  I guess this is when the promotional campaign ends...

Personaly, I find it despicable that they force those adds on paying (ad-free) accounts.

To whom it may concern: I know everyone disliking Drake because of a rumor okay who to say that is truth and it can be proven or evident to show was you there when it's happened no if you have a problem with him on your playlist then block him. Or get in touch with customers service representative to block him from your profile okay quit crying and come with a real problem for us deal like having a situation getting on your profile or signing in please

I do not know what Drake is alleged to have done. I don't frankly care. I do not like His music.

I have only heard Drake either accidentally or passively, and will never listen to Drake on purpose.

 

I would preffer his face not clutter up the user experience that I pay for.

Spotyfy should probably stop double dipping - I'll wager they accepted a large sum of money from Drake for this unashamed advertising blitz.

I'm truly apologize It happened to you by you being a paid member okay certain things that you don't want may happen that when we need to get with customers service how we want our subscription preferences be setup okay

Thats really annoying. I thought all of these playlists contained his songs, so I did not even open them.
