"Couldn't load the lyrics for this song" error in 2023

"Couldn't load the lyrics for this song" error in 2023

As of version 8.8.20.544 and the version prior to that has caused the lyrics from my personal playlist in my device 'Samsung-SMJ250F' to disappear, at first I thought it was brcause the songs were old but way older songs still had lyrics
The playlist is a private playlist featuring all songs of 'DragonForce'
and after the update none of the songs had lyrics.

My Question or Issue

Yesterday , I noticed that on some songs, I got the message "Couldn't load the lyrics for this song. Try again later". I am 100% sure that they were available before, and I noted also that it was not the message "You caught us, we're still working on getting lyrics for this one", or any messages for musics with unknown lyrics. Some examples are "Cant buy me love" by the beatles and "We are the champions" By Queen. I have tried clearing cache and Unstalling the app, but these appear on various platforms so its a Spotify issue, not because of my devices or missing updates.

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for posting about this here in the Community.

 

Please note that the availability of the Lyrics feature and the lyrics themselves can vary over time, as well as between markets, and depending on the agreements we have in place with our rights holders. We add new content to Spotify every day, so if you can’t find something right now, it may appear (or reappear) soon.

 

We hope this helps!

 

Cheers,

They used to show up time synced on all my devices, but have disappeared from both mobile and desktop recently, with spotify showing couldn't load lyrics for this song for every song.

My Question or Issue

 

i'm having this problem too

I can’t load lyrics for any songs at all, the app says “Couldn’t load the lyrics for this song” and I’m listening to a lot of big Kanye albums like the life of Pablo and Donda.  Previously every song on these tracks had lyrics.

Spotify is soon going to introduce a premium plan just for lyrics so maybe it's gradually disallowing free plan users the feature of lyrics now.

Spotify is going to have a new premium plan for lyrics so free plan users are gradually getting the "couldn't load lyrics".

It has been like this for more than a week for me. What I have been noticed is that they only targeted artists that I listened the most. I checked with random songs and they have lyrics. How am I going to learn to sing Spit It Out by Slipknot now, smh my head? 😠

What a **bleep**. Everything I listen to often had no more lyrics, and about evening what has them.

What kind of BS is this?

I am also paying premium member.

wth??

To unclerk, I just realize after I'm scrolling down, we both had the same load lyrics problem in the same exact song lmaooo.

It say in the screen you'll have to guess the lyrics for this one in the different songs.

it tells me you have to guess the lyrics for this one.

I've had the same problem for like a week at this point. Most of the songs I used to listen to (that had lyrics) no longer have the lyrics.

The song lyrics were there like a month ago but now every song that i listen to doesn´t have lyrics.

It is showing as couldn't load lyrics for this song

It isn’t just Eminem. It’s so many other artist. It says “couldn’t load the lyrics for this song” or they just don’t show. Please bring back all the lyrics to the songs back.

I'm having the same issue!

Same here!!
