My Question or Issue
Florida Georgia Line – I've never chosen to play this artist or genre (country?), though they may have once popped up in one of Spotify's playlists. Yet despite 'disliking' their tracks when they appear and blocking the artist in the iOS app (and I do'n't follow them), they *keep* appearing in my Daily Mix and other playlists in both iOS and macOS apps.
'Repeat Rewind' currently has 9 out of 30 tracks by them - none of which I've played before. wth is going on?
Tech support suggested deleting my account and starting again, which is insane – my account has several years' of listening data and the auto-playlists are usually great, so I don't want to wipe that and start again from scratch.
This started happening several weeks ago and is slowly driving me crazy. Is there a paid promotion by this artist to force people to listen to them? Why doesn't the basic 'Block this artist' function work as it should?
