[Desktop][Browse] Add About Artist to context menu of artist

I like Spotify to discover new music. Regularly I listen to a new artist and want to read more about them.

 

Now I click on the artist name (in the desktop app of Windows) and scroll down to wherever the about box is and click that. Then the About box pops up with the info (see image). That box is displayed on top of the app. Good.

 

It would be nice to be able to right-click the artist name (in the player or in a playlist or any other place) and have an option in the context menu (see image) 'About artist' that ideally pops up the about box on top of the current screen. Or alternatively if that implementation is not as straightforward as it seems, it could deep-link to the About-section on the artist's page.
