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

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

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.

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,

Hey,

 

it's already been a long time since the lyrics disappeared and you guys still are unable to fix the issue with one of your biggest artist? It's really annoying because a lot of Stans are NOT native English speaking so we kinda NEED the lyrics. Or should we 'leave it to Deezer'?

That literally didn't answer the question at all. They asked why they couldn't see them anymore as in where they have gone and when they will return. your answer stating that they're gone and may or may not come back is just about as useful as saying if you throw that stone into the lake it may or may not float. I understand that you may not have the answer or are unable to reveal the answer due to legal reasons, but giving such a placid and disingenuous answer is a bit of a joke.

Mehn,,, none of Em's songs have lyrics

My Question or Issue

Since a couple of weeks ago I have not been able to see the lyrics of Metallica's songs, they disappeared suddenly and it is very uncomfortable because sometimes you want to read the lyrics and you can not. Is there any way to get the lyrics back so I can read them? Thank you.

Hey there @user-removed

 

Thanks for getting in touch about this and welcome to the Community! 

 

Keep in mind that lyrics may not be available on all songs. New lyrics are added every day, so you may find it added in the future.

 

Hope this clears things up. If you need a hand with anything else, the Community is here for you.

yeah lyrics aren’t a global feature but what’s frustrating is that I know for a fact pretty much every single Metallica song had registered and properly timestamped lyrics, and they disappeared overnight. This is not a problem with yet to be implemented, this is an oversight and needs to be RESTORED to proper functionality. 

My Question or Issue: Around March 2023, all the lyrics to Eminem's songs (and any collaboration that he has with other people) disappeared completely from Spotify. However, I have been listening to Eminem since I got my Spotify account years ago and I can guarantee that the lyrics were there.

Hi @miruna4

 

Spotify is partnered with Musixmatch, which provides lyrics to the Spotify platform (except in Japan). Spotify does not control the lyrics' content, just the lyrics' formatting on Spotify (background color, font, etc).

I cannot explain why lyrics have been mass-removed from the platform recently, but you can contact Musixmatch here.

 

Keep in mind, changes on Musixmatch can take 48-72 hours to reflect on Spotify, according to this FAQ page.

it’s just weird because metallica had lyrics for all of their songs, right after the release of 72 seasons it took a while for the songs from the new album to come, now all their albums don’t have any lyrics

Lyrics have been up but were privated for some reason on musixmatch, I asked a musixmatch curator about it and they said that the artists most likely privated it for copyright reasons on spotifys end but that makes no sense.

The song Forever from Drake featuring Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and Eminem are also not showing lyrics for me; the song had lyrics for all four of em., but apparently they were removed. 

The song Forever from Drake featuring Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and Eminem (most of y’all already know this song), is also not showing lyrics for me. The song had lyrics for all four of the rappers versus, but they were apparently removed.

My Question or Issue

Every Metallica album, every song, every single, every cover, every live album, they all had time stamped lyrics. All of them. In the blink of an eye, they're gone. Yesterday, May 10th., all the lyrics were there. Today, May 11th., there's nothing. I tried the browser. I reinstaled the app. I tried on my Samsung Galaxy A33 phone and on my iPad Pro. Nothing. What happened?

Hi @aleverkuhn

Try checking out an affected song on the Musixmatch website (one that I know of is Mockingbird by Eminem). If the song is visible there but not on Spotify, then there may be a Spotify issue.

Hey @szf!

 

Could you share the song here so we can check if everything looks good on our end? If you haven't already, try playing the song on another device (your PC for example) or the Web Player to see if the song would have lyrics then.

 

We'll be on the lookout for your reply.

 

Cheers!

I am having the same problem, it seems like they don't want to fix it or there is some kind of trouble with eminem's label and musixmatch idk! 

I used to be able to see the lyrics of Eminem’s songs but now I can’t. It’s strange because if I use Apple Music I can see the lyrics there.

Hello moderator.
