Can't remove local files

Can't remove local files

Operating System

MacOS Catalina Version 10.15.1


My Question or Issue

I'm unable to remove my local files from my "Liked Songs" playlist. I've tried turning on and off the local files boxes on Spotify Preferences, it didn't work. Then I tried deleting the local-files.bnk thing from my computer and it's gone from the computer itself but not from Spotify!

I don't know what else to do and I can't even listen to those local files because they're all gray and unavailable so they're just.. there.

If someone can PLEASE help me, I've been trying to get rid of those local files for months now and nothing works.
