Why does the Spotify algorithm punish those who get their music added to non Spotify Playlist?

Hi I'm Rone Worthen, a Spotify Music Artist. After uploading my song to Spotify I saw that my song's play engagement was 14% from the Spotify algorithm. After my song had been added to Spotify Curators Playlists I began to notice the algorithm's percentage started to decrease. My Spotify algorithm is now down to 0% for my song. Why does the Spotify algorithm punish those who get their music added to non Spotify Playlist?

Hi Rone! I'm not really sure but i think algorithm playlist such as discover weekly and radar news are designed to add new trending music. So as the time goes by your song isn't new anymore.

On the other hand, a lower percentage doesn't necessarily means that your song is in less algorithm playlist.. it can also means that you're in the same number.. but now you are also in Editorial Playlist (which usualy means you are in more users playlist as well), so that number is equivalent to a lower percentage.

 

Wish i helped you!
