I consider myself a heavy music listener and I remember most of the songs I like and keep a big playlist with an history of all the music I like on the platform.
Today I was going through my Discover Weekly playlist and I started listening to a song that I knew the lyrics for and I absolutely had heard it plenty of times before. However when looking at the name of the song, artist and cover (Witnesses by Genesis Sparta) I couldn't recognize any of them, which is very strange.
I then tried to identify the song using Shazam and guess what, Shazam identified the song as being another one: Nature Purple by Sensitive Kratos. I again have never seen the cover of this song or heard about its name or artist.
I went ahead and played the song identified and guess what, it is exactly the same as the one on my Discover Weekly playlist. It even has the exact same length, 2:22 minutes.
I checked both artists and both only have one song, released 1 Sep 2019. I googled them and the internet doesn't seem to know anything about them.
I am 100% sure I didn't hear this song first from one of these artists or with any of these names so there are already at least 3 copies of the same song on the platform (I couldn't find the other in my history playlist yet). Is this some form of spam? Can someone look into it?
