Fake artists occupy my Release Radar

This is bad. There are fake artists with a single song getting thousands of listeners by accident, by using another famous artist's name.

This Friday, these included OMD, James, Squeeze and Harpo, Wigwam.

 

I don't want to hear their shi*ty music, and I don't want them to get money for their miserable actions.

 

How can we weed them out?

Hey @jkeinonen, welcome to the Community.

 

Hope you are having a great time!

 

Please try to look at the other end of your image, when you hover to a song 2 icons should appear at the end of the song's metadata ♥︎ and :prohibited:.

Clicking on the :prohibited: will give the Spotify alogrithm that you don't want to hear those artists or their music and eventually will stop suggesting them :)

Hope I was able to help :)

Hi LorenXK,

Does the algorithm understand that I do want to listen to the real OMD and not the fake one?

If the fake OMD (etc) has their own artist page, it should only block the fake artist. If not (i.e. most likely), it will also block the real artist.

I would try and report the artist/song, or just put that you dont like it with the do not like button!
