Suspicious Playlist

Solved!

Suspicious Playlist

Plan: Free

Country: Brazil
Operating System: Windows 10

 

Hello,
I had a song added to a playlist called 'House Music' by the profile 'Artister.io' without my consent. Researching a bit I found the playlist to be somewhat suspicious, according to the site "https://artister.io" this profile charges to have music added to their playlists, but I did not pay to have my music added to any of their playlists. I wonder how to proceed in this case, cause I don't want to have my artist profile related to any playlists that use bots or something like that.

Thank you all 🙂

Same thing happened to me. They added my latest single 'Days' to their 'Sheeran's Choice' Playlist without me paying for it. I hope spotify won't flag my profile since I dont want to be associated with fake streams and bots! 

Here's the playlist:

<iframe src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/playlist/4I9hNMdDeJrjexZFWIHq6Y" width="100%" height="380" frameBorder="0" allowtransparency="true" allow="encrypted-media"></iframe>

 

and my song is called 'Days' by 'Paul the Neighbour'

Just wanted to piggy back on this thread because it appears the same "company" is at it again.

 

I had a song added to a playlist called "Weekly Music" by "Artister.io" a few days ago. It's clearly bot-driven with names and profiles that couldn't be real, and the streams are oddly skewed on my Artist Page for the song they added. Just wanted to see if I could get something done about it, there isn't an option for reporting this kind of thing in the "Report" window on the app. I understand anyone can add songs to their playlists but I don't want to see adverse consequences for bot-playlists, I've never hit them up for their services.

 

Any helps appreciated! I attached the playlist below.

Hello there,

 

These guys are back. Please help -- I got 12,000 streams from this fraudulent account. They are still at it. See attachment.

Carlos, please help. This account is actually happy about ruining our data and stealing from your company. They responded to my request to remove my music once again with a happy face. See my screenshot in reply below...

Yep, it's happened to me and my new single. They keep adding and removing, and now it's back up again. Has completely messed with my data and like everyone else, I haven't asked for this service. Their website claims to upload songs for 24 hours and then remove them, however this has gone on for much longer. Spotify, is there anything you can do to help?

Hi folks,

 

Thanks for keeping us posted on this.

 

Please provide the URI/ Link to the playlist that your content has been added to, so that we can report it.

 

We'll be on the lookout for your replies.

Hello there, I have a similar experience. I have already contacted Spotify for artists and they can't help me so I am trying my best to get out of this suspicious playlist I got added. I did not pay for it and my song is on there without my consent.

This is their link: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/5nm9IOvb3w3G0gGM0eto9g?si=2e2618bf45dc4cf6

and their website : https://www.wavr.ai/

I have also attached a screenshot.

Hopefully this gets sorted

Hi there,

Thanks for the reply. Luckily I think they deleted the playlist I landed on because it's no longer in my Discovered On section and I'm no longer getting streams from it (and its seemingly vanished in the stream breakdown). If my case is anything to go off maybe they delete each playlist after 2-3 days and start again. This is their profile anyways: https://open.spotify.com/user/31zkevccit4lpbb5cgzt6jthkyf4?si=97b7204c030746ad

At least they don't leave you on a playlist forever like the previous case, but it's still worth watching I think. They say they sell streams on their website

Cheers

PS: also I think I somehow messed up my community profile by accident by responding thru an email notification but I'm the same person you're responding to lol

Hi all I think this same playlist has targeted a few of my songs.  It happened first about a month ago with a weird blip in my stats and the WAVR playlist showed up then.  I've never contacted this playlist EVER so I have no idea why - and like others here I feel this is not good for stats (streams to listener especially) and also I'd like to grow both music and fans organically. 

 

The most recent incident is for a brand new song that went from 3 streams (those 3 streams came from me - testing 123 haha) to now 139 and counting overnight, that just doesn't happen to my songs.  My stats don't show the playlist name, but they are concentrated in Germany (and in Germany mostly in Wernigerode).  

 

I found from Twitter (searching "wavr.ai") it looks like they operate multiple playlists with tons of followers (smart fridges?), as opposed to a month ago it seemed they had just one massive playlist.  Maybe this is new info in terms of evading detection.

 

Cheers and rock on,

Update - with today's stats the playlist is showing:  https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2t06EqQMJlFxWIqfxXXqUi

Same, same here!
Today I contacted the spotify for artists help team in order to address this problem. I'm a little surprised, that the drop down menues you have to fill out to specify the topic you need help with do not offer you anything that comes close to the issue. In my opinion this seems to be a problem you should be able to refer to. Next bummer was the auto reply I got.
Just did a 5min research on the internet. There are so many people complaining about this very one site!

Please Spotify take down this WAVR.AI already! I have reported them so many times that I'm going crazy. Today I have already sent two e-mails to Support Spotify and also sent a message at the chat. Nothing has happened! It's still there, streaming nonstop! Here are screenshots from their homepage. I don't like it at all that their playlist is visible on my artist page, as I don't have bought anything from them.

Having this exact same issue witht he WAVR.AI playlist. I have reported it to Spotify Artist Support and was essentially told we can’t remove songs from Spotify users’ personal playlists. I just don't want this to reflect poorly on my band, and it is messing with our real data. Wish something could be done about this!

My song was also added to the Wavr.AI playlist(a playlist that buys people streams) when I never paid to be added, nor would i ever want to be added as this messes up my data. Is it possible to remove this playlist from spotify as it I this messes up the my data and makes my streams look shady and suspicious, which is not the character I want to portray, nor should my music be treated in such a disrespectful manor. If possible please remove my song form this playlist and the streams that have came with it. If that is not possible to remove streams, at least please remove this playlist. (my song is called "clear" by Zars).  The playlist link is below.
