[Search] Exclude karaoke tracks from voice search results

Hi!

I primarily use Google Home and Amazon Echo to listen to Spotify at home.  I use voice commands to play music, and lately my requests bring back karaoke versions of the songs I wish to play rather than the original version, even if the artist was specified in the request.  I think the search results should prioritze the original artists over the karaoke version.

I would like a way to exclude karaoke versions from searches unless specified in the request such as "Play Sunshine of Your Love karaoke".

Thanks.

Yes please! Especially considering that asking for the original doesn't get you the track you want either.

This keeps happening to me, so annoying, I don't get.

I search via Google home "Play Rabbit by Chas and Dave" it plays

 

In the style of Chad and Dave karaoke amertiz top tracks.

 

Yet doing the same search in spotify, that version is the 26th result, so why is it playing at all?

It happens with lots of songs - very annoying. Do someone have a solution?

 

The problem still exists.
