Russian songs appearing in my Discover Weekly

Hi. I'm dealing with this for over a year now. Spotify is suggesting me russian songs for no reason. I don't have any russian song in my library, I am pressing dislike button every time I hear this language like mad man, it really drives me crazy. Some time ago I had ONE russian song in my playlist, thats all. I don't know russian at all, and now I completly hate it. I am from Poland, maybe spotify thinks that we speak russian? Please help me with this, I am considering switching to other service if this maddness wont stop.

Hi @zwierzch

 

I'm very sorry for the inconvenience. I guess it system generated. Wahtever songs added on your playlist, the system will generate closely related to the songs added on your playlist. My simple advice, try to be specific on your songs on your playlist. i.e. just english songs. If you do so, recommended songs to add on your playlist will be changed. 

 

Lemme know if it helps. Thank you.

Hey @zwierzch. I've also had this issue a few months ago. We know the Discover Weekly algorithm bases it off your listening trends but from what I gather through personal experience is if you play something totally different from your usual trends i think it signals that system to be like "OH! You like this one kind of song, maybe you'll like all these other songs in the same vein" 

 

How long as this been happening?? It took about a month for my discover weekly to realize I wasnt going to enjoy every korean pop song and eventually started funnling songs still in korean but the genre was more my style. 

 

As for a solution, I would reccommed riding it out and being consistent with the songs you put into your playlists. I also found a solution in making a playlist just for discover weekly throw aways to let it know "I heard it, dont bring it back" I havent had a repeat since. Lastly, if worst come to worst, make a new account. Transfer your playlist and rebuild your listening profile. 

 

I truly hope this helps in some way.

hi! like the other replies said, it's probably because they think you LOVE russian songs even though you only added one to your playlist. i've added a few french songs to some of my playlists and they've started added new french songs to my discover weekly. they probably just want to give you new songs to listen to. hope this helped!
