My Question or Issue

Suddenly, yesterday, one of my playlists only recommends Turkish albums/singers.  It is a country music playlist of all USA artists that I've been listening to and building for a couple years.  154 songs total.  Never had anything weird like this. Not one American artist is on the Recommendation list now.  None of my other playlists are doing this.  I logged out of all devices; deleted my apps; disconnected all apps; changed my password; customer service reset my account; I created a new private playlist and dragged all those (american) songs to it - and when I got done - all Turkish recommendations again.  I did this 3 times - all new playlists did it.  I just convinced my wife & kids to go to Spotify because of it's awesome algorithms.  Now I look like a fool.

First, I made some empty playlists with labels that said very bad & intimidating things to hackers.  Then, I started a private listening session.  Then, I would select “don’t play this artist” to about a dozen Turkish artists.  Then I started listening to the music I wanted to listen to.

 Then I copied all my playlists over the Apple Music and restarted my subscription with them.
After about 24 hours- the Turkish music went away.
