[Desktop] Songs repeating when playing from artist

[Desktop] Songs repeating when playing from artist

I went to an artist page and hit the big play button, and for some reason songs are getting repeated multiple times. other songs from the artist's collection are left out of the queue. I do not have repeat enabled. I am able to reproduce this issue on multiple artists. I have not tested on other platforms. I would think that when you hit play on an artist page, Spotify would treat the artist library as a single playlist and only play each song once unless repeat is enabled. Is this a bug, or is there something i can do to fix this?

Hi there @mkjjooooo,


Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the Community!


When hitting the Play button in an artist page, it plays the 10 popular songs first, then starts playing everything else. That's why some songs can be repeated.


To play all the artist's content, you just need to click on See Discography and start playing it from there. That way, all the releases by the artist will play continuously.


Take into account that when there are different versions of a song or album, like remastered, remixed, single, etc., the songs can be repeated during playback, since those are different versions and not the exact same song/album.


Hope this info is useful. If you need a hand with anything else, the Community is here for you.


Cheers 🙂
